    No, I think that my place is already a mess as it is. I shall wait and see what happens.

I only noticed it when I looked at the A4 receipt printout around half an hour after the delivery man left. And yes, I did wish the delivery man a Merry Christmas before he left as well!

    Not the first time I didn't get the stamps I ordered - I used Asda at my old place and it happened back then as well. I know that I have still got stamps already, but I am kicking myself at the fact that I probably didn't pick them up as my mind was too much on the food items that were being delivered. 136 it came to in total and the only food items unavailable (I never ask for substitutes) were for some pizzas.

    I always go for no carrier bags - I just cannot stand my place being cluttered up with them all over the place.

    I just hope that I can put all the stress, anxiety and everything else on my mind on the back burner for the next three days at least.

    It will be chicken for me rather than turkey because they didn't do a turkey flavoured dinner.
    I'd guess the stamps are in the post !!

    We only tried that online Tesco shopping once as they're offered free delivery and 5 cash back ...

    Sadly went a bit pair shaped as the wife ticked the box for NO CARRIER bags !!

    The bloke came with this huge delivery in some massive trays .... checked there were no eggs on the list and tipped everything on the carpet in our hallway !!

    As I haven't got the patience or the manpower of stuffing a bird and putting it in the oven, I usually have one of those microwave meals instead - and it cooks in a lot less time as well. When the Queen is on, I just pop it in the microwave and it is usually done by the time she has finished.

    I think that I have got some Cranberry Sauce in the fridge from last year, or the year before.

    I usually do the Christmas cards rather than the presents. Less bulky.

    Everyone shopped for their Chrissie presents yet or are you like me a last minute shopper?

    We have chicken all the time so Christmas Day is Turkey and Lamb

    Ahhh well .. I'm the classic fussy eater , I only eat a very small selection of things ... all English as well I just can't stomach anything new or strange or spicy etc

    I had a couple of bites of black pudding ( without knowing what's in it !) and I hated the taste , smell and texture... all the family love it .. my son is one of the minority who even eats the skin !
