Less then a month until christmas now and I’m one of those sickening people who get ready extra early. I hate crowds at the best of times but packed shops at christmas is my idea of hell. I prefer to pick up bits earlier so I don’t have to brave the last minute madness. It may be a remnant of when I was pregnant with my daughter, she was due early Jan so I did all my shopping in Nov incase I went early. Now I still do it every year, come Dec its just stick up the decorations and wait for the big day!
