Christmas #WotW

My word of the week is controversial at this time of the year!


I love Christmas, and think about it all year round.  I get so excited thinking about it that I'm rarely organised and last year we ended up in ToysRUs a few days before Christmas day.  Ridiculous!

This year, I was thinking about blogging all the things I've been planning, making and doing in preparation for Christmas.  Hopefully to keep me organised.  I settled on posting once a week as roughly enough to keep me busy without being overloaded.  And then I wondered if other bloggers might do the same.  Would it be worth starting a linky *gulp*?

What do you think?

  4. A controversial word! I like to plan early, too, though my kids have birthdays in Sep and early Oct, so I focus on those first. Best of luck with your linky :) Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  9. I too love Christmas but I'm not sure I'm quite ready to admit to wanting to think about it yet! I usually bury my head in the sand until the last week of November and then have a panic trying to get everything ready! But - yes, I would probably join in - I do remember a fantastic Mumsnet thread that started in September and helped get me ready a bit earlier that I loved! Look forward to it (sort of!!)
