I’ve done all of my Christmas gift shopping. There I said it and I feel so good about that too. Now of course I have to face the next task, wrapping and sending, as some of my gifts are destined for abroad and that means I need to get some speed and get them posted out quick. Take a peek at the Royal Mail Christmas dates as some have already passed.
Then there are the Christmas cards to write, this year not just my own but the girls’ too as all the parents have the habit of sending cards to all the friends in the class. 30 children x 2 … at least the girls have learnt to write their own names!
Cards written and sent I move on thinking about food so my current task is depleting what’s already in the freezer to make room for the humongous shop that will be for the festive season.
Where are you with your preparations?
Don’t forget to add any Christmas posts you have to our Christmas blog hop and then why not take a photo and join in the O2 Guru Linky challenge, share what the Magic of Christmas means to your family. Not sure a shot of the inside of my freezer is what they’re looking for but I bet you can come up with some great ideas!
