Would love a few mince pies now. Ate my last one earlier in the week & none of our local shops have them on sale anymore. So it'll be December 1st before I get the pleasure again.

Saw 3 houses still decorated this morning on way to work. One in particular had the most beautiful wreath on their door so you couldn’t blame them for not wanting to take it down!

I only realised last night when sitting down to dinner that our christmas table centrepiece is still out. Mentioned it to herself who said that as it was more of a winter one than christmas specific (its more or less a wreath with red berries etc) that she'd like to keep it out for a bit longer.
I had no complaints.

Was disappointed to see the last house on my drive to the train station that had their lights up had them taken down last night. So that's that until later in the year for me I suspect.

Someone has put out a box of quality street sweets at reception in work. Exactly the pick up that was needed during a long week!

The first thing that struck me when I walked past them is how festive/decorative the sweets all look in the tin. The colours resemble mini Christmas decorations.

Absolutely. I went for a walk yesterday and I saw a house that still had Christmas stickers in the window. I have a sneaky suspicion they forgot about them!

Found myself driving down the road to the house I pass on the way home from work and they leave their decorations and Christmas sign up all year round, albeit not lit up but I can still see it
