Blogmas Day 11: How Prepared Am I For Christmas??

December 11, 2017

TWO WEEKS TO GO!!

Alright so usually I get my Christmas shopping done last minute and it's a case of "MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE HERE YOU GO!!" on Christmas Eve/Day, however this year I got my act together and got on the ball pretty early!

On December 7th when college was over I tackled the crowds and got all our Christmas food goodies from the Tesco in Hull, a lot of tight smiling and £50 later we had products needed for Christmas dinner, Boxing Day buffet and our cracker, cheese and wine night on Christmas Eve. After I got home you'd think I rested but oh no I wrapped up several gifts and wrote out some more cards!
Presents under the tree?? Its officially Christmas!
Speaking of cards I have my current Christmas cards arranged in a little circle around my pretty glittery stars that Mum got me, thank you to everyone who has sent me a card by the way I need to post even more! I think so far I've posted or given about 20 so whats another dozen or so?
Yay Christmas Cards!
At this moment in time I only have a few more presents and some stocking fillers to get so I am pretty much done but I'm getting too excited and there's still two weeks to go! How about you, how prepared are you??

  1. I'm not prepared at all compared to you. I started prepping in November this year and then I got distracted. Now I'm stuck and panicking because I only have two weeks left, hahaha.

  3. I'm surprisingly prepared this year! I still have a couple of things to buy but usually I would only just be thinking about what to buy people so to have most of my presents bought already is pretty impressive for me! I don't really have to worry about cards as I don't give them to many people, probably just my mum, sister and boyfriend.

  4. Oh gosh it completely went over my head that it's only TWO WEEKS to go! It's completely flown by! A lot of people seem to be quite prepared this year it seems, I've also only got a few bits left to get like you but I still panic just incase I can't find the perfect things in time!

  11. You are really organised! I've done most of my present shopping (just a few things for Flora and Alan to get) but I still need to do all my wrapping and I haven't even started on my Christmas cards yet - eeeeek. I'm going to have a mega wrapping and writing session this weekend! x

  12. You're so prepared. I thought I was prepared weeks ago and now just realised I still have so many people to buy for and it's getting too late to order online and I'm stressing. Why do I do this?

  13. I am soooo unprepared this year, it's so awful! I'm hoping it'll teach me to start shopping earlier next year!

  14. I was as prepared as you with getting my shopping done early. I had most of my gifts bought and wrapped in November and am only left with a couple of people to purchase gifts for! It is so much easier being this prepared early on!
