When I was in Rome last week there were quite a few bar's which had garland and lights around their entrance, I think it was laziness but still counts.

Great spot and also very inventive way to celebrate the festive season.

Last 'non-Christmassy' Rudolph day tomorrow!

By the next one, the BT Christmas shop will be open, then it's the BER months and we're into the home stretch.

I'm wearing my socks that have cactuseses cacti on them wearing santa hats. Think that's a good mix of festive and heatwave.

Yesterday in Homebase I saw Santa's sleigh (a full-sized, MDF one, with bells and holly and everything) on a shelf in Homebase.

I wished I had my phone with me to take a photo!

Got an email from our GAA club about our christmas ball/party for end of november. At €60 a ticket they obviously need to start pushing it early.

Meeting in work today with all the directors to run through the current job list and we're into the time of year when christmas is being referenced frequently on programmes/schedules... remember that happening last year and thanks to the workload the weeks flying by, judging by this year's workload it's looking like being even busier this year... so crimbo before you know it.
