Its Almost here.

I can hardly believe that Christmas is almost here, Its a strange thing but the whole country, maybe the whole of the commercial world are taken up with this obscene buying frenzy in the name Christmas and the coming of Jesus. I am sure its wasn't meant to be like this!! Don't get me wrong I do enjoy Christmas and the meeting up with friends and family. I like the sharing of meals and good times, but sometimes, possible due to my advancing years,I think they whole lot has got out of hand.
I always lust after a white Christmas, but I can barely remember us ever having one. It seems to snow here on the 30th of January and then that's it. I love doing all the Christmas things to ensure that everyone has a good time. In doing that I am usually knackered and fit to drop by the time it arrives.
So one year I would like to take myself off somewhere and enjoy a different Christmas where things are done for me. Perhaps that will happen when I have grandchildren and we are then invited to their house to celebrate and I can sit in the corner and get drunk!!

I'll join you in that corner my friend and we can share the odd bottle of port or two and reminisce about the good old days, of times when the only thing we had to worry about was seeing how many posters of Donny Osmond in his purple Christmas jumper we could get on our bedroom walls..!!
Merry Christmas Lyzzy, may all your wishes come true xxx

Amen sister! Actually, on Friday I spent the day at Chewton Glen, a country house hotel in Hampshire, and let's just say, if I had the money I'd DEFINITELY spend Christmas there - waited on hand and foot, 10 foot Christmas trees in every lounge, and a spa to relax in after the festivities. Sigh. Maybe one day....
