I’ve just seen a c+++++++s cooking magazine for sale in MnS!
The front cover is festooned with jolly father cs, cs stockings shaped biscuits!

So I suppose Easter eggs will be on sale on bonfire night confusedsmile

Ps since I posted this I’ve had nothing but Cadbury cream egg adverts on my phone!!!
They’ll be reading our minds next!

Ooh I rather like M&S Christmas goodies!

But I agree. Bit early!

I have seen the selection tins for sale in Tesco, which usually heralds the end of summer sales and the start of the winter shopping season. Calendars are available, but no cards, so far.

Yes, that’s it now, I’m afraid. A full commercial onslaught for the next 3 months. All their greed takes away a lot of the pleasure of the season, doesn’t it, so that we almost become immune to the real purpose of what it’s about.
