10 weeks!

Yay!  The temperatures are dropping, the coats are coming out, and all the fun holidays are ahead.

Here I am starting to get very excited about the onset of Christmas planning – while I don’t really get decorating/wrapping/writing until late November, this time of year is definitely the season of lists and planning.  I like making spreadsheets and to-do lists and budgets, so now is the perfect time to use these skills.

I’ve started making an amazon wishlist for gifts, and next comes the address checking for cards.  With a lot of the deadlines for the States and Canada up at the very start of December, it’s definitely worthwhile putting in a few hours here and there in advance.

I’ve also bought my tickets for the Junior League’s Boutique de Noel in mid-November – such a treasure trove for Christmas gifties, and the bonus?  The tickets sold go towards the great work that the League does here in London, helping people living in poverty! 

How about you?  Are you already planning?  Half-done?  Or are you of the ilk that waits until December to get excited?

    I just love everything Christmas. If it were up to me I would be decorating already but thank goodness for Halloween and Thanksgiving they keep me busy until December.Tarahttp://tarabelle-adropofink.blogspot.com/

    I booked the department Christmas party today? Does that count? I also paid the deposit for Christmas cottage and looked up car hire to get there.None of that feels Christmassy yet though (particularly the party as we are getting Morrocan food due to popular demand)
