Lol, well, there’s not a huge amount more to say after that title but I am sure that I will find a way to waffle on for a bit so if you are not too busy, do read on…
Ok, first up, the lovely styled Christmas setting shown in the featured image for this post – it’s not mine. It’s a stock image.
I mean, how lovely does that look?
Looks nothing like my home though, lol! That’s part of the reason for this break. A time out to get festive-stuff finished and sent.
Some folk already are. Some folk had it sorted months ago. Well – done – them.
Did you hear the sarcastic eye-roll?
Lol, no, just joking. Definitely well done them for having a plan ahead of time and making it happen. I salute them because no matter what this year of infection and pre-brexit dread has delivered, they are delivering Christmas in whatever shape that will take.
Whether families are celebrating together or in multiple homes via Zoom, it will still happen and no-one will be left out – dagnabbit!
Me? I’m still nowhere near festive-ready. Not by a long shot. I don’t know why. I mean, it comes around the same time every year and I have had – I guess – the same amount of time as everyone else. But somehow I haven’t. Again.
Having spoken to a fair few folk on Facebook, it seems I am not alone. How are you getting on? Ready?
This year I am going to be spending the day on my own – no pity please, it’s definitely through choice. I will be snacking in my bed, then when the snack dust and puff pastry flake pile gets too high, I shall be using the handheld hoover to suck it all from my chest hair and beard and doing it all over again!
Anyway, on that tragic and disgusting note, I’d best get to the point of this post which was to wish you a lovely festive period – don’t get too p*ssed – and to say that although I won’t be blogging now until the new year – I will be kicking things off on a more regular footing again so do keep an eye out for me email/social media posts.
Thanks so much for reading the rubbish that I churn out, and leaving your comments like a trail of fairy dust for me to find the next time I log in, it really does make a difference.
So listen, whatever you plan on doing over the next couple of weeks, please do it with happiness in your heart and the knowledge that we are all in this mess together so lets make it a happy mess.
One more stock photo of a swanky Christmas before I go…? Ok.
*tuts – I mean, who seriously does ALL of that? Nice decor though (apart from the exposed wires on the ceiling, the plastic fire alarm and random step ladder in the mirror). Looks kinda cozy. Shall we all pop round? I call dibs for first go on Santa’s lap!
Right, all the best and I will see you in the new year!
