2 weeks until Christmas!
There's now just a fortnight to go now until Christmas Day and it's time to begin preparing the house to host your event.
This week's Christmas countdown tasks are:
TUESDAY 14 sleeps until Christmas: plan your meals for the next two weeks.

WEDNESDAY 13 sleeps until Christmas: plan Christmas cocktails and drinks.
Buy drinks you'll need for Christmas. Consider making a special Christmas cocktail, like a Kir Royale.
THURSDAY 12 sleeps until Christmas: polish your silverware.
Polish any silver that you may have. Don’t just do your cutlery - while you’re there, do other silver that you have around the house, such as silver frames.
FRIDAY 11 sleeps until Christmas: tidy your outdoor entertaining areas.
Get your outdoor areas looking neat and tidy and ready for a party. Sweep paths, oil decks, beat door mats and generally tidy up outside.
SATURDAY 10 sleeps until Christmas: count your glassware and crockery.
Make sure you have enough to serve all of your guests at Christmas and, if not, borrow from friends or rent or buy more.
SUNDAY 9 sleeps until Christmas: check your Christmas gift list twice.
You don’t want to forget anyone! Check over your gift list and make sure you haven't forgotten gifts for anyone on there.
MONDAY 8 sleeps until Christmas: finish wrapping gifts tonight. Put a Christmas movie on and finish wrapping all of your gifts so you can tick that task off your list and enjoy the last week before Christmas.
And, altogether, this week's tasks on a checklist because we love to tick!
