Rob surprised me by coming to visit me for the weekend last weekend which was such a lovely surprise. We went to the Christmas market in Sheffield which was very nice and festive and we ate roasted chestnuts and drank mulled wine.
At work we have been discussing when we are putting up our Christmas Trees - most of us agreed that this Sunday is the correct time but one of my friends wanted to put up his tree last weekend and had to be persuaded not to by his housemates.
I'm putting my tree up on Sunday and I can't wait. My Christmas shopping is going ok so far - mostly at the planning stage but looking manageable.
The swap group I am in on Ravelry has been having a Christmas swap too - we got randomly paired with a swap partner and given a list of items we should make/ buy for them. I've posted my parcel now and already received mine from my partner (but not yet opened it). It's lovely to make new friends in the swap group and send each other Christmas gifts!
