Braintree: Christmas taken care of with 10 weeks to go
5:00pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
Could this be Braintree's most organised mum?
Rose Draper has all but finished buying and wrapping Christmas presents after having started purchasing gifts in March.
A stressful shopping experience last year is what prompted Ms Draper, of The Ridgeway, to get her Christmas affairs in order that much earlier.
Ms Draper, whose four children are all under 12, said: “It can be difficult to go round the shops at Christmas with the children because it’s so busy.
“Last year I was expecting my baby Lilly-Anne and left my shopping to the last minute.
“Everything was sold out and we ended up having to spend more to get what we wanted.
“So now when I see any offers I get things straight away and finished buying for the children last Monday.
“It’s nice to know it’s done and that I can concentrate on everything else."
