The Domestic Goddess shared with me today the somewhat unnerving news that there are 100 days until Christmas. Now I suppose there isn’t really any great cause for alarm, 100 days is still quite a long time, and it’s not like Christmas is ever that big a deal (usually just the four of us) anyway, but I always think that this will be the year that the cards are all written and sent before the last posting date, the house looks fabulous and smells of something freshly baked containing cinnamon, and we enjoy a full range of meaningful family experiences and rituals. Obviously I’ll be slim and elegantly dressed while gliding through all this too.

With all this in prospect, 100 doesn’t seem like a day too long, does it? Well, we decided that we need a plan (surely it’s only the lack of a plan that’s been holding us back all these years) and so what we need is a shopping expedition next week to buy ourselves beautiful notebooks in which to plan – after which it will all just flow . . .

If you are of the school of thought that planning has to be real and earnest and conducted in something more serious than an appealing item of French stationery, then this website that I stumbled across while Googling about Christmas (sorry DG I just had to check that you were right) might be right up your street –

I shall be subscribing – maybe this is the future!

    happy to be coming along with you Jennifer, although my success rate for keeping up with this sort of thing is not good, I am ever optimistic. Maybe this is the one!
