Well, it is nearly holiday time - just 3 days to go! Are you prepared? Have you got everything you need for a stress free long weekend?If you are entertaining over the holiday weekend you should have all of the non-perishable things you need, tinned goods, biscuits, drinks etc. If not, then these are the things you need to be thinking about getting in the next couple of days. If you are buying frozen meat then it is probably best to buy that now too as large joints take a long time to thaw completely.Fresh items could be brought now as well, but make sure you check the use by dates on them or you will find that your sprouts have started to wilt before you get to cook them. Of course, at this late stage you will probably have to wear your best padded jacket and be prepared to spend hours doing something that would normally take you a quarter of the time!If you still have gifts to buy then leaving it till the last minute may actually be a good thing this year. With the recession and all the bad weather recently many shops have slashed their prices to encourge sales.If you have everything done and dusted why not start thinking about the new year. After all the stress and excesses of the holiday season why not treat yourself to a break in January. Head for the sun for a few days.
