This is my view right now from where I’m snuggled up on the settee with my hot chocolate and my Christmas magazine and I’m very pleased to say that it’s making me feel a lot more festive than I’ve been feeling lately.
I may have said this before (I’ve been feeling sorry for myself so it’s highly likely) but for the last few weeks (actually over a month but who’s counting) I’ve not been well and haven’t had the energy or the inclination to do very much at all. So even though we’ve been doing the obligatory Christmas crafts and decorating, it’s felt like a huge effort and I’ve done it more because I don’t want the kids to miss out because I’m not well. Even that in itself has made me sad because I love this time of year and it’s felt strange that everyone around me has been enjoying the build up to Christmas when I’ve just been wishing for bedtime to come as soon as possible!
But it’s all OK now because two courses of antibiotics later I finally feel a bit better and I’m ready to start enjoying my favourite time of the year (even though I still haven’t got my voice back properly and I still cough like mad when I leave the house). The fact that I’m sat here now feeling happy and festive (and not coughing or being sick) may not seem like a big thing but seeing as it is to me, I thought I’d share it with you all this afternoon. 😉
As you were people.
PS: If I owe you an email or a post or anything like that, then I’m on it. Like a car bonnet.
