Do you know, there are only 39 more sleeps till its Christmas. YES. 39. Shut the front door, right?! This year has flown by. Where has the time gone? Before you’ll know it, it would be time to put up the tree, the decorations and start buying even more decorations for Christmas.
Am I the only one that thinks standard Christmas crackers are filled with items that are useless? And at the end of ripping open all the crackers, you think to yourself, did I just spend £20 on a box of crackers, only for it to have plastic toys and games?!
