As if the sudden arrival of autumn weather wasn't enough, Xmas is creeping up on us too! I was happily queuing at my local post office the other day, when I spotted this gift card with an unmistakeably Christmassy logo!
I closed my eyes, shook my head and tutted, thinking how it was too soon for holly. Then I walked into my local M&S and what did I see? Shelves full of biscuits and a display of Christmas chocolates!
It won't be long before supermarket shelves are stocked full with boxes of mince pies and Christmas cakes. In fact, it seems as if some have already started and I'm not the only one who's noticed either.
In case anyone's wondering, my Unicef Christmas catalogue arrived promptly on 1st August, like every year. I swear, I can always rely on Unicef to remind me I need to start preparing for my summer holidays, as they always, without fail, remember me on 1st August.
The Unicef Christmas catalogue joined the recycling heap, unopened. I know they'll send me two more before November, by which time I may just be in the mood to look at pictures of snowy villages and Christmas trees.
