My Sunday Photo

I have been on the hunt for a new winter coat for a while now. I wander through the shops or browse online just keeping an eye out for that one that catches my eye. I am not a great shopper to be honest and I like things to just jump off the rails to me. With the temperature having dropped this week, I knew I would have to find that coat and I needed to find it soon. I have looked in just about every shop at The Mall and coats were either far too expensive (I fell in love with one last week that was close to ยฃ300), made me look even shorter than I am orย drowned me.

However, there was one place I hadn’t looked, that I thought I should try before embarking on a trip into town, something I like to avoid if at all possible. And that was M&S. For some reason it simply hadn’t occurred to me to have a look in there before. So, on a wet Saturday afternoon, the three of us got in the car and went to the Mall.

We headed straight for M&S and I had my blinkers on, ready to go to each section within ladies wear and wait for a coat to catch my eyes. Except we appeared to enter via their Christmas section.

I know it is only just November. I know that it really is too early to buy Christmas decorations and cards but have you tried to walk through a Christmas shop with a four-year-old in tow? Don’t. Because if you do, I guarantee you will come out with Christmas decorations and cards.


P.S. In my defence, there is a chance I will be in hospital at some point in the next month or two and on strict bed rest for a good few weeks, so really, I should be more prepared by now and not just have a pack of cards and a few tree decorations. That’s my excuse and I am sticking to it.

  1. Awww no excuses =P

    Its so okay do to this early! In my country you can see Christmas decor (and hearing songs) as early as September. When the months started to have BER in the end that is the start of Christmas. And it ends in 3 Kings (Epiphany).


  2. I love Christmas so much, and I’ve been collecting goodies for about a month now. I have that postbox decoration, and the sleigh one too!

    Nipping over from My Sunday Photo.

  3. Id like to say its far too early for Christmas, but im currently redesigning my blog header to be a little more festive! lol

  4. I bought Christmas decorations on Thursday and I didn’t even have an excited child forcing me to do it! It’s never too early, sure the coke advert has been on tv so it’s absolutely allowed ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I hope the stay in the hospital goes well. I love looking & shopping for Christmas. I’m in Asheville this weekend and there are a few shops here that are strictly Christmas, I love them!
