Cowart's Common Room
There used to be a gap....

Between Christmas and Spring. Now there isnt....at least as far as the shops are concerned.

Waitrose yesterday had any Christmassy bits on sale at the back of the shop, and packets of mini eggs at the tills. Sainsburys today had hot cross buns on the 'tempt you' stands as you walked into the store.Gone were the bunches of flowers with tinselly bits and frosted designer sticks - in were mixed bunches of impossibly spring-like flowers in yellows and oranges. A sales girl walked by pushing a rail of little girl's swimming costumes - lucky 2 years olds off to the sun in January!

Trouble is the weather knows it's winter - and I've heard there's snow on the way!

No sooner are we out of Christmas almost it is sale sale on adverts at present, then it will be easter eggs before it's even spring.

KitKatCot's Avatar Yes, I saw the Hot Cross Buns in Sainsburys today. I was looking for some of their gorgeous mince pies, but no luck 'cos it's not Christmas Confused
