Hi all
Couldn't sleep so went down stairs for a cuppa and there on the fireplace I saw a Christmas card!
Never had one this early it's not even December!
Its from my Hubby's cleaner at work
I must say I have done all my Christmas pressies and wrapped them up!
Only because I have a feeling my daughter will be admitted to hospital soon so thought I'd get sorted, also I have to get all my parents pressies for family and mums carers as my Dad is Mums full time carer and it takes the added pressure off him
Also helps this is my first year of retirement so a little more time to shop I was never this organised when I worked
So dare I say Happy Christmas :D
Take care everyone
Maria

    I got my first Christmas card yesterday too. Honestly I don't even want to think about Christmas until December but you cannot avoid it nowadays.

    Interesting, Toni. Our elder lad was born on 10th December and we always held fire until after his birthday or, at least, put up the decorations and tree for his party.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
