    Hi @csno01 Yes all ready. Tree with go up at weekend. Just have to post neighbours cards, then done. I am glad it is so cold at the moment am out side as little as possible. Have a lovely Christmas and take care.
    Great stuff @Teddybear12. Do you have a real tree? I have a table top one. Yes, it is freezing. I’m surprised it hasn’t snowed yet. Thank you you too.

    That’s understandable@Sandy_123. I’m guessing that will be before the Christmas dinner?

    Everything was going to plan until we got a spanner in the works, you might have seen my thread about our ex daughter in law being very ill, it's still touch and go tonight but we are trying to stay positive for our granddaughters sake, my eye is improving after the op 9 days ago.
    But as far as Christmas goes everything is done apart from the last minute fresh food shopping.

    Lets hope that Christmas for all of us is better than most of this year has been, and that 2023 won't be quite as bad as they are forecasting xx

    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas @csno01. I am currently trying to submit another two job applications and then I'll be ready for the festive period!

    I have recently got the Christmas food shopping which has helped my household and me to feel ready for the festive period. All the nice snacks - mainly chocolate cake :D
