    Our tree is up, presents are bought and wrapped, cards are written and sent and I've got the Christmas music on.

    Can you tell I've been signed off work for two weeks? :roll:

    Yup, I'm so organised :D I think it's my motherly instincts kicking in :lol:
    All the shopping was finished in november, they're all wrapped now and ready to go. Cards were sent on thursday. Tree is up and I don't need to get any food because we go to my Mams :D

    Hehe, not a sign of any Christmas decorations in my house. Most of my belongings are slowly being packed ready for the move in the New Year.

    Hubby and I have decided to have a quiet Christmas and not buy each other presents. Nor are we spending a fortune on everyone else. I've spent about £130 all up for everything. We are inviting parents over for Christmas day but plan to go out walking on Exmoor somewhere for most of it and eat in the evening.

    I've written cards to post as its also a handy way of letting people know our new address and baby if they don't already know.

    Other than that, it'll pass us by quietly. Saving for baby and other things are taking priority this year.

    Oh Clarey, my house is still a tip, don't get me wrong, it's just that I've changed my priorities slightly and done all the Christmas stuff to put off tidying the spare room :rotfl:

    God, it's a state in here, and every time I come in I'm distracted by the puter. My husband says he's gonna remove the fuse.. :evil:

    Our lounge now looks like Santa's Grotto once again! Love it! It took more than 4 hours but it's so worth it :D :D

    We've bought most of the presents now, only a few cards left to send and still have a few bits to buy for James' stocking.

    I haven't a clue when the decorations are going up, we've got James birthday party next weekend, and his real birthday the following friday so that's dominating my thoughts at the moment.

    We've decided the outlaws are having xmas dinner at ours this year. MIL is going to bring the birds already cooked (a stuffed chicken, inside a duck, inside a turkey! :shock: ) and the xmas pudding, so I've just got the sort out the roasties and veg and stuff.
    I'm so relieved I don't have to cook the mutant birds, I've never even cooked a roast dinner before! I was having visions of everyone being in bed on boxing day with food poisoning :rotfl:

    I have my tree up and that is it. No presents, no cards, no booze or food, the inlaws arrive on 21st and my house looks like a bomb hit.
