My Crimbo schedule goes something like this:-
August - December 1st - buy prezzies for everyone then forget where I've put them.
December 1st - put up tree and dex and buy more prezzies as replacements for those I've misplaced.
December 24th - wrap up all prezzies in a frenzy of paper and sellotape, getting into a really bad moor
December 25th - spend all day cooking and hoping against all hope that I get a new Prada handbag that will join the others on my dressing table cos I can't use them in case they get mucky.
December 26th - sleep - if I'm lucky - it ain't happened yet
December 31st - stay in cos of being billy-no-mates
Jan 5th - take the dex down and moan about being another year older
Jan 6th - hope that next Crimbo is actually fun LMTO!
