The turkey has been picked up and is chilling in it’s little plastic onsie in the fridge! The vegetables arrive tomorrow for the short stay at our house before they disappear into my tummy. Only one more day at work and then there is not having to worry about it for another five days. Anyone would think it was Christmas. Oh wait it is……
I have to be honest and say I am not a big Christmas lover, I think I may have mentioned that before. Occasionally though I do get overcome with the spirit of it all, and burst into random renditions of Christmas carols. I also have a fondness for festive TV, and may in fact watch the Wizard of Oz for the 100th time. I’ll counter and possibly win discussions by starting off with ‘But it’s Christmas…’ and there is no doubt that I will eat way to much and promise that I will never do so again.
I’m really looking forward to a few days off, a chance to relax and unwind, catch up on some blog reading and perhaps, if you are really unlucky, I might even write a few posts of my own. I’ve missed so many great posts lately, but life has been a little more hectic than usual.
We have weather warnings in place for high winds over the next couple of days so I hope the electricity stays on. I would hate to spend my 5 days off suffering from Brussel Sprout withdrawal symptoms.
Chances are I will be back before the big day, but should I not be, I would like to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas. I am so grateful for the support I have received from you all, right down to each and every like and comment! It’s been humbling and overwhelming.
Who would have thought at the start of 2013 that I would meet a bunch of wonderful eejits like you!
Merry Christmas, I hope it’s a good one!
