My son hosts his own party in Edinburgh, and Steve's mum is reluctant to drive up here with the weather the way it's been. For us to visit any of them means putting 4 animals into kennels, which is too much hassle and expense at Christmas. So unless any of you lot happen to be around, we're unlikely to have any visitors at all (not even customers, so even less than usual). Hardly even any point putting up decorations really. Just a bit of a hoover round and a bit of a feed on Christmas day.
It's only Christmas. It'll happen and pass by and life will go on,
whatever you do, or even if you don't do anything.
I think we all make too big a thing of it these days.
Well the media and retailers try to make people turn it into a big
thing that has to be prefect. Bollocks to all that, just family, nice
but not over the top meal, some nice drinks.
I actually rather enjoy the sense of freedom during the Christmas holidays though. Nobody expects you to be available at a moment's notice to fix their broken sax or cane chair, so we do can whatever we want, whenever we want, for a few days, without feeling guilty.
However, before all that, I still have to make some Christmas cards, so I'd better stop waffling.
