    Oxymoron methinks - I know that Easter comes earlier, but surely not before Christmas the previous year?

    Talking about Christmas food out of season, my local Sainsbury's has some Mince Pies already on the shelves - of course, the use by date is in October for obvious reasons.

    I've heard of someone being send a Christmas catalogue in November & tried to order something from it, only to be told it was for the next Christmas.

    I think that it was a hamper catalogue in which one would have to pay so much a week for the entire year - don't be surprised if you get to see adverts for hampers for Christmas 2020 on the TV and online soon.

    Sometimes I don't understand the concept of hampers - I mean, most people can get to a supermarket or do online shopping and buy the contents of a hamper in one visit, can't they? Three or four days before Christmas, I spend around £120 on food items for Christmas and New Year and I use Tesco online or go to Asda or Morrisons and shop there. Everything from regular stuff like a loaf of bread and a bottle of milk to items that I would only get for Christmas like a bottle of sherry, After Eight mints, or turkey dinner.

    Funnily enough - I bought some Angel Cake from Sainsburys today which has the Best Before date of 31st October - hardly a date that one would associate with angels, especially this year considering Hallowe'en and, dare I say it, Brexit!
