Had to brave our local, large shopping centre this afternoon which is always crazy on weekends. After doing a quick assessment, we realised that car parks were somewhat scarce, so resorted to plan B…get the car washed, and voila, a car park!

But once inside, there are people everywhere…yet it’s not near the Christmas crush as yet. But the Christmas decorations are now well and truly up, and the stores are filling with Christmas items.

Don’t get me wrong, I adore Christmas…always have…and I am itching to start decorating our new home, but I just can’t bring myself to do it till later in November! I have visions of lots of fairy lights…if my husband will let me!

And I am determined to be super organised this year..get the Christmas cards done early, and get the presents done! Online shopping is the best!

But the strangest thing we noticed today…despite all the signs that Christmas is definitely on its way..was that we didn’t hear one Christmas carol…!!
