As it’s now officially November, I’m starting to allow myself to get a little bit giddy at the thought of Christmas around the corner.
I might have been moaning back in August here that it was just too bloomin’ early (and hot!) for the shops to start selling Christmas cards, but after the festivities of Bonfire Night it’s more than acceptable to start looking forward to Christmas.
Last week I was writing my name in the air with sparklers, this week I’m thinking about Christmas presents.
I’m starting to feel the urge to watch Elf, or the Snowman but am trying to hold out until it’s at least the 1st of December, as according to the small people, that’s when we’re allowed to watch Christmas stuff as it’s then officially the festive season.
Likewise with mince pies. I could quite easily start eating them now, but have decided I can’t eat them just yet because I’ll probably be sick of the sight of the things by the time Christmas Eve rolls around.
The adverts have started on the telly, and no doubt the Coca Cola truck advert with Santa on will be hitting the televisions soon.
Then it really IS the run up…….
