With Christmas being only 164 days away, have you started your shopping yet? Are you organised?
I usually start thinking about it after I get home from my hols. Actually looking forward to doing some proper shopping this year instead of "internet" shopping and sending other people out to do shopping for me.
oh god no. i buy presents as and when i see them. which is usually never unles you're very, very special to me
Yup. Did some shopping today. Wasn't Christmas shopping mind, but you didn't specify......
Oh yes I'm very organised NOT!! Last year I decided to leave all my christmas shopping until it was actually december, cos the year before I'd done the majority before and it didn't feel christmassy :tongue: and i had nothing to do when my mates were doing theres!
But kind of forgot I was away for part of the first week, and I was doing loads of overtime at work, so it all ended up being crammed into two very short (3 hours each) shopping trips!! Really don't know how I did! I kind of forgot a very important person last year aswell cos of all the rush, I forgot my Nana! so my mum had to take me into town like with half an hour to go before the shops shut on christmas eve!! Oh the Joys of Christmas!!
I think I'm guna start at least planning my christmas shopping a little bit earlier this year!!
I'm normally found running round at the last minute like some sort of loonatic (doesn't just apply to christmas!). I had to do all last years chrismas shopping by the end of november because I was away for a month over christmas, so I had to buy and distribute all my pressies before I left. It was no less panicky or stressful, but at least the shops are quiter in november! Might try and be more organised this year...
Do you have to start on about christmas now?? Not even been on my jollies yet!!
are you mad or summat?!?! (actually... thats a yes..hmm..)
christmas shopping.. IN THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER?!?!?!
my christmas shopping tends to be done on christmas eve..or the week before christmas.. depends how organised im feeling..
News Flash - It's summer.
I left mine till a few days before we broke up from school last year, will probably do the same this year.
Please tell me you are taking the p*ss, its July!!! And its sunny for once!!!
Short answer NO!
I dont usually start thinking about Christmas shopping until at least October... :wink:
*Nods in total agreement!!!*
well considering we are talking about christmas i didnt think i had to specify!
I only thought i would mention Christmas cause i have to start my recruitment in august for all my christmas temps! all we have talked about at work is christmas lately.
I was in trafford center the other day and there were CHRISTMAS decorations up......luckily apparently it was for filming for Tv......lol
talk about a pre-build-up to the pre-build-up to christmas......
Only good thing about Xmas is the food and ensuing **** up!...its lost its charm with me not getting as many prezzies now
Plus one of the worst times to be in a brass band, stood freezing your preverbials off in some crappy car park somewhere
I do tend to start my shopping fairly early, particularly as I have a couple of relatives who are a little awkard to buy for. I'm always on the lookout for things that would fit the bill, often buying them months ahead - and sometimes forgeting where I've put them when it comes to wrapping them up
Thats what i like to see, Organisation
im quite shocked to report that.. in the duty free today.. oh no.. yesterday (god time flies.. no pun intended) anywayz, in the duty free my mum bought a christmas present for one relative. because it was cheap(er)
Judging by some of the "efforts" I heard from bands last Christmas, it might be time to start practising carols now...
now you come to mention it will, we already are! we've had a few carols and christmas songs out for over a month now! but ermm cos were doing a christmas CD at the end of the month!
