I mean that literally - I used to have them now and then - e.g. it's 4 pm on Christmas Eve and somehow I've forgotten to buy any presents, a tree, etc.
I'm sure it dates back to a real panic-shop. Dh and I were living in the Middle East, I was working at the airport and qualified for 10% flights, though standby only, so we never knew till last minute whether we'd get on the plane.
So we decided to fly back on the 23rd if poss, and not tell anyone in case it didn't work out. (Luckily we knew that dh's folks would have room for us.).
Hence I had just Christmas Eve to buy and wrap presents for at least 10 people. Couldn't buy anything beforehand, there often weren't even basics in the shops locally then.
I haven't had that particular nightmare for quite a while, thank goodness!
Does anyone else have them?
