Is it just me? But despite annoying colleagues counting down to Christmas from the August Bank Holiday and that smug distant aunt that likes to brag every year about the fact that she did all her Christmas shopping 11 months ago in the January sales, it still doesn't feel like Christmas!
Maybe this is what happens as you get older and gleeful anticipation turns into procrastination and despair as you try to put off the inevitable; spending an entire month's salary in a record 2 days and hours of highstreet stalking is looming on the horizon, as you attempt the annual impossible task of finding the 'perfect' gift.
Perhaps if I had gone to see the lights switched on, or gone to Santa’s grotto and sat on Santa’s knee.
Whatever the reason I am not yet in a festive mood and it's just 10 days until Christmas! (*Panic mode). If the vibes don't improve soon I may have to take some drastic action and purchase a ridiculously festive jumper or resort to playing a cheesy Christmas compilation CD whilst wearing a paper hat at the work Christmas lunch- but hopefully it won't come to that!
