Well its the small hours of Christmas Morn ...............not a creature is stirring - not even a mouse .............. and that includes me!!
Sitting here wiped out on sofa having been zzzzzzing all evening
Decorations are not done and not a card sent to anyone (so if anyone thinks I have left them off my list and sulking they ahve been forgotten - its nothing personal no-one has received a card) and I don't even have to try and cook tomorrow!! YEEEEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAAA
Had a last minute invite to friends for the festive feasting so Christmas Day night we set off bearing gifts and vino and whatever else I can think of. But such a lifesaver as been really out of it these past weeks with the ME - hurrumph Everyone keeps telling how grey n grim I look :-( and that I need REST! Yes well .............. I will I do when I melt down ahve no choice!
Think most presents are wrapped - such as they are - pretty short shrift for everyone this year - if I hadnt bought you that special something during the year - sorry but your out of luck this year.
I remember years ago I used to go with my good friend Sandy out Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve .................. and we would come home laden with goodies for everyone and had such fun at the same time ............. I am sure her house is busy this evening as she readies for all her children and grandchildren ( 5 + partners + 25 Grand-children) - she needs catering service!
And here I am with just the two of us and can not cope!! How sad is that!
I just keep falling asleep and can not fight it off ................. then awake at odd hours and legs keep going out from under me being all weak n wobbly - like a poorly set jelly
Anyway DH manged to take me to supermarket this afternoon - and managed to buy some real food (having bought cakes/mince pies etc earlier inthe month) - he is such an angel putting up with my frustrations!
Son will be busy getting ready for Christmas with his finacee and her children in Wakefield and daughter in Northampton settling in there - they both moved the same time last weekend in all that terrible snow and ice and blizzards - was horrific for them!! Anyway hope they have unpacked and manged to get festive and get provisions in all this snow
Well about time I put out the mincepie for Santa with a wee dram plus a carrot for Rudolf and his pals .................... as I hear pitter pattering of feet ...................... lets hope Santa is good to all of you!!
Merry Christmas to ALL and to All a Goodnight!
