Well, we're definitely in the final countdown to yuletide now – I know that because of the Christmas films on the telly, the music being played on the radio (wish I had £5 for every 'So Here It Is Merry Christmas!'), and a little thing called the 'QVC shopping days till Christmas' appearing at bottom of the QVC screen! Lol.
The bad weather has an upside though – makes everything more festive and beautiful. Here's my contribution to the 'snow snaps' doing their rounds on Facebook – this is a pretty snow-covered lane near my house – lovely!
So there I was, sending out all my Christmas cards to you guys, as promised in blog last week, and watching some of my must-see Christmas films. What are yours?
Mine are always Groundhog Day, Holiday Inn and White Christmas, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation and one of the many Scrooge films – enjoyed the latest Jim Carey one very much last year. And so many more which I'll have waded through by 25th!
Lauren was helping me do envelopes – that'll be her writing on the front of the card! I had a lovely trip to see her in Bath at university, including lunch in Pizza Express – we're not in a wine cellar, honest!
Then we toured round the little Christmas Market – yes I love them if you hadn't realised from previous my blogs! Which one do you go to every year?
I bought some funny things for QVC colleagues – can't tell you about Jilly's and Craig's as they may read this! But my secret Santa pressie was stripy toe socks and some bubbles which you blow – remember those?! And as my Facebook friends will know, Barbara our manager got the one from me and promptly showered myself, Ali K and Julia with bubbles!
Anyway, I'm just off to buy the tree – I love having a real one because of the smell. Watch out for the pics of presenters' Christmas trees soon on QGossip!
And here's a final clip to help everyone get in the Christmas spirit – the scene in the middle of Bath with some super carol singers – unusual song, but the words are apt considering it was -2 that day!
