Haha yes. The cut and thrust on the shop floor!

I love christmas but hate shopping. But thanks - you've got me thinking about what I need to buy!

Apparently Christmas day is now just about the most popular shopping day of the year now the Internet rules, but sad really.

This. After the panic I always swear I'll do next year's Xmas shopping in January. Never do.

I'm excited for Christmas already.

Last year was crap because I had a swollen disk in my back which kicked in on the 23rd December which caused unbearable pain and resulted in me lying on the floor for the whole Christmas.

Plus on the 16th I got crazy stomach pains and had to go home from work, and visiting the doctors a few days later they found blood in my waz so over Christmas my sample was being examined at the lab so I was on pins the whole time, and the medication they gave me made me feel terrible.

So this year Im gagging for Christmas because I deserve a good one this year. It can't come soon enough!!

I hate the fact that the shops put out Christmas stuff so early but I have to admit that this year I've pretty much finished all my shopping already and am even considering wrapping everything soon so that it's done and dusted. :oops:

Watched Home Alone last weekend. I'd love to see a total amount of times I've seen that film. Must be around 100.

Last night I watched The Royle Family Christmas special from 2008. Classic. For me, it's the only Christmas special that rivals the Father Ted one.
