When starbucks get the red cups in, and the salvation army band play on the high street..you know its christmas :)
i can't believe its over for another year...maybe its us getting old, but even with the tree all lit up, the christmas vintage market open, fruitcake and wenslydale, sloe gin, santa hat on and an (almost) white christmas...it still took me FOREVER to get myself into the festive spirit this year.

Managed it eventually though. And though the reindeer antlers are going back into the cupboard for next time, I actually feel quite content..oh, and if this year goes like the last, it won't be 10 minutes until its christmas again..

hopefully next year i'll write something more eloquent.
