Here’s something you might not know about me… I LOVE Christmas. Like big time, crazy, start planning gifts around about now. It’s not what you spend, but the thoughtfulness, and the personal touch of a gift that warms the cockles of my heartstrings. I literally have a notes section on my phone, and record stuff that people like, suggest or ideas I have for gifts. You are never safe from my Christmas planning… And because I’m the thrifty snake, I still make use of lay-by, which means I can drip feed the more extravagant of my gifting. I’m not sure why I’m like this, but I’d hazard a guess it’s from too much TV in my dysfunctional childhood. I craved order, tradition and just generally joy – and Christmas is the time of most joy, most giving, thoughtful gestures to others. Time to think about what, and who is important.
