A new study this week revealed people who put their Christmas decorations up in November are happier and generally more excited about life than those who wait until December.
Which is great news for me as it gives me the perfect excuse to badger my other half into getting the decorations out this weekend, so the Massey family Christmas can truly get underway.
To be honest, I feel I have been celebrating the festive period perpetually since July when we started working with The Handmade Christmas Co – a small independent outfit specialising in personalised Christmas gifts.
We’ve got them some gorgeous coverage in the likes of Prima, Good Homes and HomeStyle; but this week my Christmas came early by landing them a spot with Trinity Mirror regionals, which means almost every town in the country will be exposed to their gorgeous Christmas goodies.
Not that I’m celebrating with a glass of mulled wine just yet. There is still plenty of work on this merry account to get through; but if everything comes off it will be a very happy Christmas all round.
I am trying to win stuff. Last week I tried to win some VIP tickets to the Sale Sharks v Northampton Saints. You had to guess how many players would fit on an Arighi Bianchi sofa.
I can’t remember my exact answer, but I thought I’d wow them with wit, so, obviously, it was hilarious, relevant and just all-round bloody marvellous. Anyway, turns out they weren’t looking for wit. However relevant. They had actually filmed how many players could get on the sofa. It was 15.
Today, I’m trying to win 10 free sessions at a boxing Gym. I need to combine a famous boxer with a Christmas song/carol.
So far I’ve got:
- Evander Holyfield and the Ivy
Yeah, that’s it. Any suggestions gratefully received.
