But when I get home in September there is the Spectre of Christmas waiting for me.
How wonderful that I have had a chance this year to plan ahead!
I was invited to the Waitrose Christmas Press Preview (in July!), and there was so much to see. It is a shop I use frequently , and I hope this post (and two that will follow in the next couple of weeks, will help you with your planning!)
|It's so useful when supermarkets carry a good range|
of Christmas stationary, I love the red noses!
|Pretty cards, including some that support charity,|
important at Christmas to remember others
|I love these packing boxes, they are superb|
|I'll be watching out for them|
(though they are so lovely I'm not sure I'll be able to give
|The heart detail is perfect, simple and unfussy|
And I think they are perfect for food hampers.
I'll make up some boxes using a combination
of delicious prepared ingredients and some
of my own preserves and Christmas liquors
