    Steady on! They'll break you in gently with those tins of christmas sweets (sadly more expensive and less per tin than last year) as well as some christmas cards. Beware of supermarket pricing, sometimes if you wait a week or so you'll get two tins for 10 rather than one, their prices go up and down like the volatile stock market.
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,

    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    6?! They were 5 last year...

    If the weight isn't reduced it's the quality of the 'chocolate' that suffers. They're not what they used to be...

    Just been to our local Garden Centre and they have some Christmas tree's on the
    shelves and they have blacked out windows which is to say they will be starting the Christmas Display.
    It usually takes about 6 weeks for them to get it done..
    Merry Christmas to all...

    That has got to be so frustrating! But it's all the more excuse to get your Christmas things out early!
