    Love Christmas. We used to put decorations up at beginning of December. Can't wait to go to parents house for Christmas and enjoy them all

    Bit too early for me, we'll probably put our up mid December.. Outdoor lights may go up a bit earlier but won't get turned on till then.

    We went out for a meal form my birthday this year, the first week in September. The harvester already had a tree, lights tinsel, the works up! I presume it was part of promoting their Christmas menu but even so, the children hadn't even go back to school form the summer holidays :crazy:

    Oh but they do.
    My son (40) recently went to Legoland (with his girlfriend and her son) and bought HIMSELF a very expensive kit.
    I don't think he is ever going to grow up :roll: :lol:

    Horn player, your never to old!, when ever any of my 3 boys have had Lego sets to build, my hubby is the 1st one there to "help" build it. My youngest had a space shuttle, rocket and moon buggies lego sets once, I think hubby had more fun helping to build them and "test" them after. He's 43 and owns a couple of the Lego technics kits as well

    Horn Player, Lego is big with adults especially with animators. There are some brilliant clips on You Tube were people use Lego and stop motion animation.

    Just not motivated yet, maybe next week when the town lights are switched on. If not at least I'll get 20% off at my hairdressers ;-)

    I've got to go for my hba1c tomorrow, so have decided to book the day off and go into town after and attempt to do my christmas shopping.
    Wonder what the odds are off me doing all my shopping in one trip? lol.

    I did manage to get everything in a day. But not in the way that I expected!
    Went into Birmingham expecting to get everything, came back with nothing. Not even some wrapping paper. So I went on the internet, ordered everything. My bank probably had kittens seeing all the transactions... but never mind, it's done. Just got to wait for everything to arrive!

    Great way to shop, hope your hba1c want well for you...
    Birmingham, I was born near there.
