12 weeks today and it's Christmas, I don't know whether that makes you laugh or cry! When do you generally start focusing on the festive period? Personally, I've got all my shopping completed come the beginning of December as to avoid the stress of hitting the city centre shops the few weeks leading up to Santa coming.

I've got two pressies already only cos I know they will be hard to find when I normally start shopping November-ish, can't believe it's only 12 weeks away gosh don't time fly? It only seems like yesterday that we were putting the decorations back in the loft.

I'm going to try 'n' book tickets (which go on sale 9am tomorrow) for the official switch on of the Christmas lights in Glasgow's George Square on November 16th, I love these kind of events. I went last year with my sister and the 2 kids and it was fantastic, gets you into the festive mood.

I'm well advanced with my buying on Christmas gifts, not too many to buy now. Come the end of November, I'll be well finished so I can sadistically laugh at the stressed out 'last minute' brigade during December 1st & 25th.

I like to be organised for Christmas which explains why my Christmas shopping is almost complete - tomorrow the 1st door of the Advent calendars can be opened. There's no stopping the countdown to Santa's arrival once December arrives.

Some of the music channels on Sky are also playing festive tunes, a Blue Peter badge to anyone who can guess whose listening to them - still in November!

I've got my 1st Christmas night out tonight with the girls at work, going to a Chinese restaurant and onto the pub - maybe a karaoke. We've done a Secret Santa which will be interesting.

Come the end of the night, God love any handsome young man dressed in Naval uniform and hat. Wouldn't be a patch on Simon but.....!
