    We aren't entirely ready for Xmas.

    Still got DS's present on layby, still have to finish putting up the decorations, still need to send the Christmas cards.

    The most I got going right now, is the tree is up, and I have written my shopping list for the Christmas feast.

    Comes down totally to the fact, of money. I just recently moved house, and every single avenue is drained. So a little stressful here at the moment. Haven't put anything on the layby in just over 3 weeks.

    Almost organised. I figured I wouldn't want to be doing all the Christmas running around once I finish work next week so decided to get my butt into gear for once!

    The tree is up, only a few little gifts left to buy (done the major ones) and wrap. The only thing left for me to do is the Christmas cooking (rum balls and shortbreads) which I'll do over the next week or so...

    It's nice to be organised. Usually I leave it all to the last minute!

    Nope, no tree up yet, bought 1 pressie (for my Dad) so far, no idea what food DF will be doing (we have MIL & FIL over from the uk for Christmas & my parents for NY) TBH we are getting married on 3rd Jan so wedding plans have been a priority. Will probably organise everything 2 weeks before Christmas while MIL & FIL are here to help with DS

    I'm semi organised. I've bought for mum, 2 of my brothers, 1 of my cousins and my nephew. I know what I'm getting dad, so I have nan and pop, one cousin and one brother left to buy for.

    Luckily DPs family aren't doing presents except for the kids and there's only one kid. And DP and I don't do presents (we're both strapped for cash until she starts properly working and that is only the week before Xmas - so I'm not too stressed. I've put up the tree and such but I'm more stressed about the logistics of Christmas Eve and day - I have so many places to be at once. Gah!

    I'm sort of organized. I just have to pick up a layby, get the rest if DP's present and grab some stocking fillers for DD2. I've made a list for food but that's as far as I've gotten there. I haven't wrapped anything and I have no desire to. Hopefully I find some motivation soon.
