You know its nearly Christmas when...

- you get lots of post in nice coloured envelopes
- you get lots of post which isn't bills
- but you still can't fathom who some of it is from (but at least its not bills!)
- you have about seven emails left in your inbox, none of which you REALLY want to answer
- you have very few new ones with which you can delay/ put off the difficult ones
- businessmen get on trains with large carrier bags rather than briefcases
- the train is busier at midnight than at six p.m.
- no-one on the train is sober (except you.. if you're an abbess anyway.. honest!)
- someone dies in Eastenders

I'm sure there are more... tell me tell me..
