A few fellow bloggers have mentioned seeing Christmas displays in shops already and it's only the first week of September.
Today, on the way home from a very successful car booty sale, Man Wonderful and I popped into a very large Mr Tesco's store that we don't usually frequent, to gather supplies for a roast meal for the family this evening.
The "lady" in front of us at the checkout had two large tins of choccies amongst her haul.
I casually said, "Someone's getting organised early for Christmas!", with a smile.
She replied - and I kid you not -
"Nah, these are for supper tonight. I can't be arsed cooking."
