Even heard Bublé on the radio, definitely Christmas.
It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity

Start of vetting to the call 17 weeks 2 days.

Wish I was sorted! We’ve just been married two weeks ago so Christmas was on the back burner. He’s gone back on the rig and not due back until just before Christmas so it’s all down to me. Everyone get the violins out 😂.
