How many sleeps until Christmas? How many more shopping days left? How much will be spent on presents that might or might not be wanted? How much food and drink will be consumed over the long break? Just as Halloween has gone, all things Christmas are in the shops – including the repetitive music.
Before Christmas, we have Bonfire night, which will see lots of fireworks – a run up for the new year.
I am looking forward to spending quality time with family and friends and having time off work, but before then, I will be wearing my headphones whilst shopping and ignoring all the Christmas treats. The treats are bought for Christmas, but they have to be replaced as they get eaten.
