    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 :rotfl:

    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 ...

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

    I bet you're jumping off the walls. :)

    I might actually get excited about Christmas this year as we will hopefully have a newly extended house to spend it in ... the work should be starting in the next few weeks and it should all be finished by then .... although it will take me forever to decide on all the new furniture and kitchen units etc ... if it isn't finished we may be making Xmas dinner with a BBQ, a microwave and a George Foreman grill :rolleyes:

    well, the warehouse at work is beginning to be filled with Christmas stock (Celebration tins are on sale already) and there are pallets of Roses and Quality Street tins.

    I've bought a few presents (some Yankee Candle Reed Diffuser sets from a web site that was changing hands and getting rid of some stock) and the children have started to make their lists, so we're starting to feel some Christmas spirt here in Hampshire!

    Christmas isn't allowed to come around too fast... It means I'll be back from my massive trip and have to find a 'proper' job :eek: maybe I could find something in planning trips :thumbsup2
