Christmas season preparation

I am not the most organised person in the world, far from it but I do try to improve on my Christmas planning every year. It is November 9th and I have had my Christmas head on for a fair few weeks now. I started off by purchasing some Christmas decorations whilst my family and I were in California in October.  It is wonderfully festive already in the U.S what with Halloween and the lead up to Thanksgiving.  I purchased my first Christmas magazines whilst there and continue to add to my collection.  The covers are so enticing and they are packed with excellent tips for making the lead up to Christmas go as smoothly as possible. I have started to compile a bit of a wish list of decorations too. I shall post my most interesting finds as I see them.

Here are some links to my favourite UK Christmas publications so far:-
