Returning from Italy mid November to find the shops full of Christmas is always a shock and a wake up call too. Our town Christmas light switch on takes place this afternoon, cue frantic shoppers made crazy by all the Christmas music and restaurants full of office parties.
So I thought I’d better make an effort. I’ve thought about our Christmas meal, I’ve thought about buying presents and I’ve thought we could maybe have a larger tree this year. As if that isn’t enough I have also made our Christmas cake, safely wrapped and tucked away.I think there quite enough for now. Oh yes and I’ve started eating mince pies.
