    * Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas * - It's the 2019 Christmas Chatter Thread 24th Dec 18 at 6:09 PM

    Hello and welcome to the 8th Christmas Chatter Thread.

    Itís hard to believe that another year has gone and we are almost at the big event that we have spent so long planning and preparing for! But this thread is about so much more than Christmas but about the whole year with all the ups and downs, as well as the bits in between.

    NOTE - For all new people please don't lurk, but come and join in with all the chatter. We are all a little mad (about Christmas!), but not dangerous.

    The following posts will be made up of all the links saved from last year with new ones added as we go.
    This will hopefully make it easier in October/November when we are all looking for them.

    Please let me know if any become out of date or if you would like your birthday added to the list

    Thanks to all posters on the previous threads Ė the thread is only a success because of your contributions!

    So on that note it is over to you and roll on Christmas 2019!

    A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realise how blessed you are.

    I'm going to start wrapping this week, I tend to wrap a family at a time, then all go into a bag, which is named, I find it easier to keep track.

    Well, my plan on writing my cards went to pot at the weekend, either picked up a bug or food poisoning, once I had stopped being very closely acquainted with the loo, I developed a strange relationship with my bed! Not spent that much time in bed ever. Hopefully will manage to eat something this evening, for first time in 3 days, going to have to be something bland. On the plus side, it has to be some weight loss

    Only 2 months!!!!!!!!!!!

    I tend to do my wrapping in early December so the pressies can go round the tree. Might be different this year as Iíve recently got two very inquisitive kittens (aka the hooligans) so I donít think anything will be safe if itís accessible. I like to get wrapped early so I can relax but DD2 always prevents that by arriving to stay on Christmas Eve with all DGDís pressies still to be wrapped!

    Ew GTQ that sounds horrible, hope youíre well and truly on the mend.

    Loving everyoneís Christmas chat, sorry Iím not joining in more but Mum has been in hospital for six weeks and has just moved to a nursing home so itís all a bit mind numbing at the moment. Catching up with all that youíre up to is keeping me festive though.
    It's the most wonderful timeof the year .....
