But saying that Dh has cleaned and moved the fish tank (wait for him to do this for months) so I bet he will want to put the lights up next weekendNovember 25, 2008 at 1:44 pm #67364
Well you have definately helped me make up my mind. i will be putting my decorations up this weekend…..cant wait. Then gonna get the fire lit, a glass of wine and write out the christmas cards.
Looking forward to it now,,,and don’t care what the neighbours will think, I want to get in to the chrimassy mood!!!!November 25, 2008 at 6:15 pm #67368HappymammyMember
YEH!!!! I am defo putting up mine next weekend!!! 😆 My daughters bday is the 14th so cant wait now!! Still have sooooo much to buy! 🙄 😆 Still though I cant wait for the christmas mood to set in!!! The weather is getting colder everyday i think!November 25, 2008 at 9:36 pm #67373
Well i am slightly miffed!! Just got off the phone to my Mum, who lives in south east England…and they have had snow for the last 2`days…soooo jealous!! And it was proper good snow as well, the stuff you can make snow men out off. If that doesnt get ppl in the christmas mood I dont know what will.
I would love for it to snow here, just to be outside having fun!!!November 26, 2008 at 9:45 am #67380
ahhh really, the lucky thing ask her to post some over…..feels strange with tree up, neighbours think i’m nuts who cares, but then ya look out the window and it’s noce out, cold but nice….bring ion the snow….how nice would it be for snow on x-mas dayNovember 26, 2008 at 2:06 pm #67396
Ah yeah, wouldn’t be great if it did snow on christmas day…..no one will be inside!!
Cant remember the last time it snowed,
Ah I wouldn’t worry about the neighbours…they are prob just jealous as you have the guts to put your decorations up now. I told my DH we will be putting them up this weekend….he gave me such a funny look, like I had gone nuts!!! But I don’t care.
We have a fake christmas tree but would you know where I can get a real one from? Would Homebase sell them?November 26, 2008 at 2:12 pm #67397joey_ruddMember
i have to wait for dh to bring down the tree, don’t think it’ll be in the next 2 weeks though 🙁November 26, 2008 at 3:42 pm #67399HappymammyMember
Guess who has there tree in the hallway!!! 😆 ready to be put up! my mum thinks the neighbours will egg my house!! 😆 😆 Feck them its all about my kids and we started making little crimbo stars to put up onto the tree, my mum did it with us and she still has them! enjoying everymin of it now this time next month it will be all over! 😥 I think people will enjoy christmas a lot more this year because they will not be spending as much as people dont expect as much due to the lack of money in our bank accounts these days. Cant wait for the kids nativity play and xmas eve mass! oh and of course ice skating at the RDS our big day out! 😆 😆
Heres to a big happy xmas to all this year and y 😆 a little bit of snow would be nice but not too much so we cant drive on crimbo day have to visit the nana!!! 😆 😆 😆November 26, 2008 at 4:44 pm #67400Taylor5Member
I’ll go up to egg your house too 😆 😆 😆 😆
Ah everyone to their own, if you want to put them up go ahead but I really thing it should at least be Dec before you put them up
Ally you would get any real trees on sale at the minute, sure it would be dead by xmas (you would need to have it in water to get that long out of it) There is a lovely seller on the Dublin road near the boyne valley and the guy in Laytown does lovely ones (the fruit shop Lismora (sp))November 26, 2008 at 5:05 pm #67402
