    hi just wondering are any of you thinking about christmas yet?? i wasn't up until i was at work and we were making apple pies (i work in a bakery) and as they came out of the oven i smelt them and started thinking awwww christmas is soon....AHHHHH CHRISTMAS IS SOON!!!!! :shock:

    then i realized that september is half over and thought how can that be september JUST started!!!! i feel like time is going sooo fast and am starting to worry about christmas, so my stepsister and i (she started worrying when the wish book came out(big xmas catalogue)) sat down and had a conference and decided to make personalized gift baskets....phew problem halfway solved thank goodness....

    then i made a list....20-30 people to get gifts for :S....NOT including OH DD and this baby coming.... :? so needless to say we are starting next week lol

    annnyways tho i was just wondering if any of you have been thinking on it, and what you have done to level out the stress?? also basket ideas would be nice as i need about 30 diff ones lmao :D:D MERRY CHRISTMAS :lol:

    Sorry, I am one of life's planners but that is not for me. I consider it a personal failure to buy a present before December.

    A woman I work with proudly announced on Monday that she had started her shopping. No way! LOL!

    SNAP HELEN!!!!!!!

    I will buy the odd little stocking filler, but I LOVE all the hustle and bustle of Christams shopping and the atmosphere around the shops, so I have to do the main bulk in the middle of December :happydance:

    I have thought about starting the Christmas cake, and I am starting to think about who I am going to buy for, but this year I am going to try and cut it right down, I mainly want to do my immediate family and let that be it! Otherwise we end up buying for every cousin and most of them are adults now and they work, so they can go without now! :D

    But by the end of October, I have a rough idea of all that will be going on............

    Ooh I can't wait until Christmas :dance: :happydance:

    I'll buy little bits in November but leave the bulk until december.

    I love to go to Manchester and go round the German markets and get all Christmassy. And this year I want to go to Edinburgh in December.

    Then I love to wrap them all up pretty and put them under the tree.

    Ooh I'm so excited.
