How come everywhere is suddenly full of talk of Christmas? You can’t watch TV without wall to wall adverts peddling a variety of Christmas infused tat, there are decorations up in shops and my inbox is filling up with seasonal offers and extortions to get myself organised.
How can this be?
Christmas is a VERY long way away.
Several months at the least.
Except then some nice person sent me an email saying it is on 45 days away! That’s 32 working days!
This is not on!
Christmas cannot be this soon. Our building works are nowhere near finished, our house is still in chaos and I cannot even start to think about Christmas when we are still camping out in our makeshift accommodation.
The thought of Christmas cards, buying and wrapping presents and the need to do all that really soon fills me with dread.
Would anyone else like to join me in stuffing their fingers in their ears and pretending we still have a long time to go before the big day?
On a similar note, can you tell me how we can get that awful Boots advert off the TV and how I can avoid ever again hearing the X-factor wannabes terrible M&S advert?
Right, I’m off to convince myself it’s still October. You in?
