You know what I'm talking about! Sorry about that.
Every year I say I will be more organised at Christmas. I will write things down. I will plan better. But somehow it doesn't happen and some time around 16th December I have a panic. How those of you who have families manage, I have no idea! Apart from toddling off to church Christmas morning I will spend the day alone. My hope is that each week in the run-up to the great day I can write down a few of the pre-Christmas things I have done so that I have the start of a Christmas planner. Well, that's the theory
I've got my Christmas cards made and the labels printed. Many years ago I created a database of Christmas cards to send so sorting the labels is a doddle. I make all my cards the same and make sure it is a simple design. Now the only thing is to write a message in each card. Groan.
Each time I have an on-line delivery from Sainsbury I include a few stamps on my order. This makes sure that my order is always over £40 so I don't have to pay a supplement for a too-small basket and I don't have to buy a huge quantity of stamps at once.
What will I have done by next Saturday? Watch this space!
