Christmas is coming.
You may have noticed.
People seem to have great delight in giving you an update on just how many days there are left until Christmas. This is usually fine. But this year, the year of our Make Do and Mend Christmas, Christmas is going to involve even more work than normal. And I am starting to panic…
So I need a plan.
I really need a spreadsheet, but spreadsheets scare me, and I don’t know how to make one (cue shocked gasps..!) so I’m going with a table.
It will have the following headings:
- Person’s name
- Intended present
- Items needed to make said present
- And a box to put a big tick when the present is made
My list at the moment stretches to ten people, including the Smalls and the lovely hubby.
I’ve made a rough list of what I want to make for everyone, and at the last count, there were at least 12 presents for me to make, and at least 6 for the lovely hubby to make.
There are apparently 7 weeks left until the Big Day. So I basically need to make 2 presents a week, to leave me a bit of wriggle room.
And the usual Christmas puddings, Christmas cake, Christmas chutney, mincemeat, mince pies….
Better get cracking then
