    Come on then, own up, whos sorted out for christmas?

    I am, bought the last presents today, all wrapped up and at my parents house so the kids dont see or know! so i can sit back and relax now and wait for it.

    i get sooo excited about christmas, decorations go up halfway to the end of november,i even make the decorations, the paper loops we had as kids, i think they make christmas more special because me and the kids make them out of bright paper, and i love the run up to the day! plus its my birthdy on the 23rd december so i love it even more lol!!!

    so come on whos started shopping? whos done? and who hasnt even thought about it?

    well im starting this week shopping for presents because i have left it till the last min every other year and i end up buying a pile of crap and spending a fortune. I plan to have it all done before the 1st dec. I am going away for a girlie weekend so need to save for that. plus i also have my little's girls birthday the 21st dec so party to organise for a pile of kids. so busy time of the year so am planning to be organised this year for once in my life!

    sarah cant believe you have all your pressies bought and wrapped your superwoman! i need some of what you have but my biggest thing is what do you buy people who have frigging everything!!?

    I have little lists of what I want to buy people and am going shopping next week.
    I absolutely love christmas...I'm one of these people that start watching christmas movies in Oct and playing christmas songs.
    Went through my decorations last week and where we moved from a 1-bed flat to a 3-bed house have decided we DEFINITELY need more decorations :D

    I dont like christmas. It's too much hard work. What do you get people that have anything they need? Also it's left to me to do all the prep, I get stressed about it every year....would like it if someone took it off my hands and just let me turn up and eat on xmas day!
