    I feel like christmas has had such a big lead up this year as I've had mine all done for about 5 weeks! Now living in a town where choice is slim and prices are high, I had to do it all when I went back home to coffs..
    I used to hate the choice of shops there now I love that there is more than one place to go
    I too though am not looking forward to wrapping the presents, but am looking forward to my 2.5yo dd face christmas morning

    All the presents are bought, half are wrapped and homemade gifts are planned and will be started on Thursday night after work.
    Plus land+water rates are paid

    On another note, I have SO much work to do this week, getting lots of patients set for the weekend so the weekend nurses can have shorter Xmas and boxing days!

    Stay away from the shops! Insane! Lol
    Just pop into your local newsagency

    ETA: I still have my food shopping to do, but as I'm providing the desserts I'm not too worried
    Oh and wrapping is my favourite too!
    But I only like to wrap whilst watching a Christmas movie and this year there have been hardly any on tv, pooh!

    I am INSANE. I am going to a big shopping centre today.

    Not even for shopping. Lunch with a couple of mummy friends & taking our boys to see giggle & hoot (along with how many others!) who are making a special appearance.

    My Xmas baking is the only thing left to do. Had planned to do it Xmas eve morning but now I'm working from 9 instead of from 12.... So will have to do it fri after work.

    I've just gotta wrap the presents 'from santa' & pick up a box of chocolates for my auntie who's hosting Christmas dinner, and also shop for whatever I'm bringing to Christmas dinner. But otherwise I'm sweet

    I'd done 90% of it in November. 'Santa' just decided to pick up a few bits & pieces for jasper yesterday.

    I'm pretty much done. DD is getting a wooden cubby/slide/swing/tramp set so that has to be put together on christmas eve.

    I have brought her some presents for under the tree but after wrapping them last night I realised I have only brought her 11 books and a towel so I'm going to buy her a toy of some kind to open on the day. Santa has filled her stocking and brought her a sand and water table. So she is pretty much done.

    Brought for ILs and just need to buy a bunnings voucher for dad and my parents are done.

    Got DH books, a DVD and shoes, so he is pretty much done just need to grab some socks and undies for his stocking from Santa

    Brought all the food yesterday. So a quick trip to Kmart and I'm 100% done
