We're now in the final run up to Christmas with only a week to go until Christmas Eve, and I find myself asking where did December go? Back in November I kept reassuring myself that Christmas was ages away, but as soon as December 1st arrived time seemed to accelerate and disappear behind me and now I'm completely disorganised!
Still, there is a certain excitement in the last minute rush to get things done, and I'm looking forward to spending Saturday picking up gifts for everyone. Thankfully here at work I can sort out a number of gifts, I've picked up a gorgeous Elemis set for a friend of mine that I know she's going to love, (lets be honest ladies, who doesn't love to pamper themselves with fabulous spa products!), and for an extra treat I've booked her into The Beautique Spa here at Hayfield Manor for a manicure on the day of her work Christmas party.
And my grandmother is going to be delighted with her voucher for Afternoon Tea (there's no fear of her reading this so I know the surprise won't be spoiled!). It will be a lovely treat for her once Christmas is over and the 'January Blues' kick in. Mom is already hoping that she'll take her along with her, so I might have to treat her to a voucher also!
To all those people like myself who have left things late this year...... good luck with your shopping and don't stress, we'll get there in the end!
