Faux Fuchsia has put up her Holiday tree. All the supermarkets in the UK have their Christmas lollies and treats in stock. I feel very behind the eight-ball. I am blaming my horrid cold and travel-lag that I have had over the past two weeks but I certainly do have some planning and organising to do.
Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love the food, the cards, the presents, the parties... I have already done a lot of my Christmas shopping, courtesy of overseas holidays this year and being super-dooper organised. There's only Mr Kitty to go in the present stakes and he's really hard to buy for as me maintains he needs nothing (let's not get into the discussion that presents are not about need, they are about want, generosity and spoiling people as I have had that one over and over with him).
Christmas Day this year is at my parents so there is no food to organise for the moment. We'll bake Christmas cakes and puddings in November but that's at least 3 weeks away yet. I can't bake my cookies yet - it's too early. My mother doesn't want to talk about the menu as yet.
So that just leaves Christmas cards. I prefer buying my cards from the fabulous etsy, and last year I bought beautiful letterpress cards which I would certainly like to do again. However, like Cclarebear it seems like I am a bit early on that front. There aren't a lot of cards for sale yet and I am getting a bit frustrated... Hurry up etsy people!! Get your Christmas lovelies listed so I can start buying!
Other than that I am right on top of everything. Sad really - It's the beginning of October and Christmas is almost sorted. Lord knows what I am going to do for the next eleven weeks.
Maybe I might have to get a job. Anyone want to hire me?
