You can tell it's the run down to Christmas when:
1 - Christmas specials are all over the TV
2 - I get excited by the single digits for Sleeps To Santa
3 - I watch my Christmas movies: The Grinch and The Santa Clause
4 - I make my family watch the reruns of the ITV Christmas pantomimes. Again.
I'm sure there are plenty more, like singing along to the Coca Cola advert and having Christmas songs stuck in your head. My point is, I woke up this morning and it took me only a few minutes to realise that it is exactly one week til Christmas!
And like the child I am, I got ridiculously excited.
Later today, I am going to sit down with The Boyfriend and watch The Grinch. And all this week, the pantomimes are on at half 5 in the evening, so I know what I'm doing!
On Tuesday, I am getting together with some of my friends from sixth form, who I haven't seen since the summer, and we are having a Christmas meal in a local pub, which should be good fun. At least, I really hope it will be, because they was a lot of drama trying to organise it. But let's not get into that; I do not wish to spoil my Christmas mood with bitching.
In case I don't talk again beforehand, I wish you all a Happy Christmas and a good winter holiday. <3
