**Woohoo !! It's Christmas Day !!**


Yay !! It's that time of the year again ~ It's time to drive you all bonkers with my 'Countdown to Christmas'. I can't believe that it's only 6 months since my last Christmas thread was closed, and once again, the year is flying by ~ so that in only 6 months time it will be Christmas again.

So, has anyone started their Christmas shopping ? worked out what you're getting everyone ? or do your kids already know what they want this year ?

Any ideas what the big 'must haves' are for Christmas 2012. I haven't got a clue what my girls will be after this year, at 21 & 19 they'll probably want the dosh.

I will refresh this thread each month to drive you mad and to remind you to start your shopping early ~ even though you'll prefer to be shopping for suntan lotion and bikinis

If you see any bargains or 3 for 2's etc. then please post on here for now and share them with us, and hopefully a 'bargain thread' will be set up in a few months time

Can I take this opportunity to be the first to wish you all a very ...


Santa Mandy
(aka Crimbo Bimbo)

p.s. also here's my ticker till I can put my Christmas tree up at the end of November

I'll let you know when the big tins of sweets arrive in the warehouse - it's usually just before the children go back to school in September - that's when it start's for me. Have to confess though that I'm already making Christmas cards and spent a lovely weekend reading through some old craft magazines - all Christmas themed.

My DS has the 3DSXL on his list (if it's released in time). I'm thinking of getting DD her first phone.

Almost time to make a start on my Christmas Lists book! You're definitely not on your own with your love of Christmas Mandy!

I can't believe how quickly this year is going

Christmas is my faveourite time of year normally but I especially can't wait for it this year.

Have had a bit of a bad one so far, with some of my plans not hapenning, and having to go in for an unexpected big op 5 weeks ago.

I am going to be throwing myself into planning this years to be a bit more special than usual and so will be keepng an eye on here for all of your wonderful ideas

I'd love to be a fly on the wall in your house on Christmas morning.

I bet you're jumping off the walls.
