I am feeling so organised....

I went to Costco with a friend on Friday, it is the first time I have been and I was hoping to get a light tent (she bought one for her hubby there) and some Christmas goodies. I failed with both so now the light tent is on my birthday list and I went into town yesterday to get everything else. Now, you might think I am mad buying my Christmas pud and ordering a a turkey when it is not even December yet, but I KNOW if I don't, I run the risk of not being able to get hold of them, it's not like I can nip down to the local supermarket to buy either.
I would love to make my own xmas puds but the cost of dried fruit is ridiculous here and it would cost a small fortune to make one pud, so it is Walkers puds for us.
The turkey, I order from The Meat Guy, I have used him for the last few years and always had excellent service. I don't have a very big freezer, it is a push to get a 1kg chicken in there, I have no hope of getting a turkey in, so I specify the delivery date and time so it will have time to thaw. I also have to cook the turkey on the 24th because I can't get the turkey and veg in the oven at the same time!
So, dinner is sorted, most of my cards are made and written, I have two presents that need sending to make, but I am waiting for a felt delivery the rest are done just need wrapping. Phew.
I can see we will have a big trip to the post office next weekend, my aim is to get it all sent off on Saturday so I can concentrate on gifts for those closer to home :o)
