I miss the Argos catalogue :( it always seemed to be that if nowhere else had it Argos did. Mind you saying that I have nightmares still standing in long lines at Xmas waiting for the next delivery of a certain Toy story figure.

Spinney's may have a better selection this year now waitrose are onboard. I have the new Argos catalogue!! Started this week picking out all the things I can't get over here ready for guest to bring out.

Our first year here we moved 2 weeks before xmas so we got a tree from falcon gallery and then hit the shops bit time in deria to "comfort" ourselves as it was the first time without family around.

last year spinneys took care of the turkey, no doubt they will again this year and all I want for xmas this year is my family around me......(got diamonds for xmas last year!)

Nothing wrong with smelly's and music...I was just getting to that, my Xmas list is very long!!! :)

My parents are coming over for Xmas so they will no doubt bring some of the more traditional stuff that is not available here.

What about Christmas Crackers????

Yes I have heard about Falcon Gallery, it is supposed to be cheaper too.

I will have my family around me too, I always do, can't imagine Xmas without, the more the merrier I say. :)
