    Do You Cruise Or Career Towards Christmas?

    I have been cruising towards Christmas until today but now I'm in panic mode

    There is SO much to do

    So as Christmas is just 6 days away, how ready are you?

    by Friday night I had done nothing, now all cards have been send (managed to catch the last day of 2nd class ), tree up and decorated. All presents bought and wrapped although a few still to be collected from Next (I am too tight to pay for delivery). only the food left to buy now and think I am going to blow my nectar points on a turkey from sainsburys so I feel like I am not spending money. Just hope I can get one for 68,000 points.

    i used to panic every year and rush around like a mad woman, now i cruise!
    presents are done, tree is up just the food shop to do now.
    i may well change to a panicer in the next couple of days as we are away doing the xmas family visit down south for the weekend so 2 missing days to get shopping and as monday is xmas eve i will probably be running round the way too busy supermarket getting the things ive forgotten!
    whos idea was it to visit the weekend before xmas instead of during the holiday week???? oh yeh that was mine arghhhhhhhhhhh lol!
    no seriously no panic for me, if its not done its not done! its only a day !

    Cruiser here! It's a Glorified Sunday roast. I don't send cards, visit those important to me and ring a few others
    Children have never had everything they asked for so I have never dashed around for those elusive must haves.
    Oh dear I sound like a grump lol

    I always buy through the year. Glad to be organised as had surgery last week, then got a horrible cough/cold and so have barely left the house all week. Did a food shop on Monday, first time I had gone out nice getting back from hospital, and felt so ill.

    Don't have to worry about Christmas dinner as go to my in laws. Tree is up. Main thing now is wrapping presents.

    Cruised through it this year, working full time so praise be for online shopping.... not a lot of money at all to spend but this year it hasn't been a problem, by Friday the kids will both be home from uni -seeing my other daughter and her family on Boxing day, food shopping over the weekend... that's the bit I am dreading - the crowds and the cost!
