Less than 7 weeks till Christmas.
There I said it.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news..
Are you organised?
started dragging your bottom around the shops for those must grab bargains, or are you already that organised that you have been purchasing since last year when the sales started?
do you know where you are having your Christmas Day lunch or dinner, if not in a home, have you booked the venue?
have you decided what egg nog recipe you are using?
have you started scouring recipe books for ideas(come on live a little) or sticking to old favourites?
have you bought any ingredients in preparation for the big day?
have you dragged out and dusted off the plastic Christmas tree and checked all the branches are in tact?
