Most garden centres are empty right now as they restock for Christmas.
I absolutely hate it, I donít want to see a bit of tinsel until after Bonfire night , and even thatís too soon.
Itís the ones with young children I feel sorry for. How do you keep the magic for little ones when Santa is in shops in the next few weeks.

People keep telling me such and such a shop has Xmas cards or gifts on display, so I avoid them like the plague.  I donít want to see or hear anything about it ..... far too early and not interested.

Actually I hate Christmas too. I'd much rather ignore it completely and just have sausage and mash Christmas day. Unfortunately when you have family that's not easy to do but my youngist son has suggested myself and husband go away instead. Might be a bit late now though.

As for the Christmas cards, I was in a
National Trust shop and they were right in front of me.  A total inpulse buy. ::)

I have no interest in Christmas either.  I put up a tree, cook lovely food but find it all tiresome to be honest.  Every year I say I would like to go away for Christmas but I get outvoted.  The family all help with the veg prep, dishwashing etc so it's not all down to me but Iíd rather be elsewhere.

Once we don't have Mum to consider we will remain here.  If we went abroad it might be a commune ..........

We enjoyed our 4 years - alone, 2gether.

One year we got into and out of our car a LOT can't remember the amount but it was in double figures - that was C.mas Day  :-\

We go away for the C word every other year, so we can at least spend one year at home. When we go away we tend to stay in Brighton as teenager loves it there - plenty to do, mind you I like it there & it's equal distance between our parents & my grandmother.
Hubby & I have decided that we are definitely going abroad one year!
