I have been having a very busy week with work this week so apologies for not being more interactive. Also, I have been struggling against tiredness, so my book work has been put on hold this week. 😦
Due to my mushy brain I thought I would write about Christmas!
There are only 73 days to go – who is excited?
My mum shocked a lot of people the other day as she put on her Facebook status, that she has completed her Christmas shopping!
She received a lot of responses from people expressing their jealousy at her pre-planning and thanking her for boasting. It was a laugh to read them.
I must admit I was rather jealous, but I am half way through mine so I am further ahead than some. I tend to start my Christmas shopping early because there are a lot of birthdays around this time as well and so December becomes a very expensive month for me! My birthday included 🙂
The older I grow the stranger Christmas becomes for me. I still get excited, I still enjoy watching the Christmas movies on TV and love opening presents. My mum still makes me a stocking and my twin and I make her one in return.
I still get up extremely early! But I have been restricted by my mum and sister that I cannot wake them up until 8am/9am. As I wake about 6am this is a long time to wait, with my stocking outside my door not being able to jump on mum’s bed and open it.
Yes Christmas time makes me feel like a big kid again and frankly I think that’s a great thing. When else do we adults get to let our hair down and be childish again?
On the plus side of being an adult at Christmas, I am allowed to drink as much Mulled Wine as I can! I absolutely love the stuff, all warm and fruity 🙂 Yum yum.
What do you do for Christmas? Which is your favourite part of Christmas?
