Actually, I'll take that back. Having just seen a Hairdresser in Marple centre (no names, no pack drill) advising us to "book now for Christmas", Pete can advertise 2009 Easter and Mothers Day events now as far as I'm concerned....

Herewith insulting reply to Alison (would have been earlier but I was away!).  You usually blame me for inherited madness - You need to be a bit mad to stay sane in this world. :D

What's the problem here?, all the Ringers is saying, book early if you want a seat. My car will remain parked up over the festive season,
and I only ever walk to the pub. So I am glad to be reminded that tables will be hard to come by over that period.
 If you keep nice company and want to be amongst other nice people then the "ringers "will suit you, so book early for Christmas, even if you do think it's humbug!

I used to work in Asda in Stockport when it first opened (that ages me!) and our Christmas tape had 8 tracks on it. On a Saturday I worked twelve hours. I barely escaped with my sanity intact

I believe that ceaseless repetition of inane music is actually used in some parts of the world (Guantanamo Bay?) as torture!   So it's only a matter of time before some poor tortured employee of Asda or Wyevale sues their boss for failing to protect them from occupational stress - and I hope they succeed!    ;)

I agree that Christmas is great, and if I could get away with leaving the decs up all year I would - but who is prepared to admit to buying a chocolate advent calendar (on sale in Marple coop when I went in tonight) in September?

Oh well, I guess things have moved on a little - I used to work in Asda in Stockport when it first opened (that ages me!) and our Christmas tape had 8 tracks on it. On a Saturday I worked twelve hours. I barely escaped with my sanity intact (some would argue the last point - cue insulting post from Mum!)

It's not that I don't like Christmas, but Christmas is in late december, not late summer. DO you get excited about the end of the tax year and start tasking to pay the tax man in november?
