I'm not I am working 6pm till 4am so having dinner at my friends and going to work, off on boxing day and will make that a lazy day watching tv, unless you have small kids I think christmas is over rated I look forward to the new year when the sales are on lol....I look at the fact its one day and if I work I get paid a fortune more money to spend in the sales...xx
How excited I get depends on who's going to be around and what will be going on. This year will be a weird one, so more looking forward to New Year's. I often find Christmas a bit overwhelming, but I do love to give people presents. I like to get pressies too, of course. But I get a lot more satisfaction from going out and choosing gifts for people I know and love. It's great fun.
I live with Mr Scrooge himself who always walks around going... do we need to have decs up.... no don't get that we don't need that its only Christmas... Grrr do I have to get decks up from the cellar...
Get the picture... lol
This year will be very odd as it will just be my husband and I... now daughter has moved and my father will spend it with her as she is working close up to... have that lost feeling already.
I thought I would plan a nice meal... lobster and Roast lamb with fresh veg and a lovely homemade fruit Jelly with a touch of baileys ice cream maybe... or maybe a moussaka... my total fav made the way my greek grandmother used to make it...
Anyway Christmas... normally makes me so happy... this year... making me feel sad first in 19 years without my daughter.. it hurts.
