August Bank Holiday Weekend 2012: Next Stop Christmas

The weather may have let us down a bit at times but we’ve had a great summer.  It’s hard to believe it’s already the August Bank holiday weekend and the next stop for many will be Christmas.   It’s just 17 weekends between this Bank Holiday Weekend and Christmas!

The first major milestone in the countdown to Christmas is only a few weeks away. The last posting date for international surface mail will be end of September.  If you need to send large bulky Christmas presents internationally via surface mail then you need to be shopping for them now and getting them in the post in plenty of time.

I normally harvest my lavender over this weekend, but this year it’s too wet and I think I’ll leave it for next weekend and hope it’s somewhat hotter.

Over the coming weeks I’ve got lots of ideas for Christmas Planning tips for great blog ideas so do watch this space.  I’m always interested to hear from you, so if you have any ideas or tips for planning and enjoying the perfect Christmas do please get in touch.

Have a nice Bank Holiday weekend, and let’s get planning for a great Christmas.
