I have 11 birthdays in December to sort out (fortunately 5 involve just a card) including my OH (21st). Worse thing is trying to book a special non-festive dinner out for him - everywhere seems to have 'special menus' on and we often get caught up with office parties - dire if you're not part of it! Usually end up with me cooking beef wellington(or similar) or visiting our favourite curry house.
Was in GC yesterday - nearly driven mad by a particularly poor, tinny version of Jingle Bells on permanent loop emanating from some plastic decoration - interspersed every 30 secs by "Ho Ho Ho" from a plastic Santa. Who the heck has these bl***y things in their home!!???
