Our front lawn at Christmas

I have known Christmas is coming ever since 2nd September, the day my kids went back to school.  I went into Tesco wearing shorts and flip flops and tripped over a mountain of Cadbury’s Celebrations  in Snowmen festooned tins. How on earth can anyone get excited over snowmen when it is hot enough to melt them?  More importantly who actually buys a tin of chocolates in September and honestly believes they won’t have polished the whole lot off by half term?  I guess the supermarkets cash in on this weakness and forecast that most devotees will buy at least 10 tins of Celebrations by the time Christmas actually comes.  This morning I opened Good Housekeeping magazine and it had recipes for the ‘Best Ever’ Christmas pudding and Christmas cake.  This was horrible on 2 counts.  Firstly it is only October and secondly I hate Christmas pud.  Give me a chocolate Yule log any day.  Even though I am a Christmas fanatic complete with neon flashing reindeer on the lawn I cannot face any festive thoughts until November.  This year Autumn has clearly been divided into two. Up to November 3rd is Marathon Season, and after that I will consider crackers and wrapping paper.  If I get round in New York I might even nip into Macys to buy the odd Christmas present.  For myself of course….

In just 2 WEEKS I am running the New York Marathon for Macmillan Cancer Support. If you are enjoying reading my blogs please donate at: http://www.justgiving.com/jayneandtrevorwebb
