I think there are lots of deadlines to meet before 25th December when the shops are finally shut and you can sit down. It’s the time of lists for me with a master list that has dates to meet.
When Tara gave us that Christmas song title ‘It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’ for this week’s Gallery theme, I was spoilt for choice. However, when I thought about it, the arrival of December and getting my cards written and posted is THE deadline for me.
Once that can be ticked, I feel Christmas is on the way. However, I do feel that ‘Christmas is on it’s way signs are coming far too early. It has always annoyed me to see lights and trees in October but August?!! I get the feeling that people have put their decorations up earlier this year and wondered if it was an attempt to cheer themselves up in these difficult times.
