It started on Sunday with having a really bad back, which took days to right itself (though it’s painful again today). Then work kicked off big style, including moving this blog to a new host, which meant downtime & database ‘issues’, which translate to me not having ticked a box, when I should have. At least it was an easy fix, even if it took a while figuring it out. Then today I had to take my car for it’s MOT & service. While it passed everything, it needs repairs that I cannot afford. Hello credit card. Not what you want just before Christmas. I have been exhausted all week & after the database issue, I have not felt like blogging at all. I’ve been too tired to do any crafting in the evening, so it’s just as well I finished off my second & final homemade gift at the beginning of the week. I do feel a sense of impending doom as Christmas approaches. There’s always so much to do, even though we’re not hosting but I want everything to be right and for us all to relax as much as possible. I’m actually in denial about how close Christmas is! Even my pretty desk flowers aren’t doing much to pick me up 🙁
I think part of it is the darkness. Not only is it getting dark so early on in the day, but the room I spend the day in is in the darkest part of the house and has no ceiling light. This means I have to rely on lamps, which never seem to give out enough light & I feel like I’m working in shadow for most of the day. How I haven’t had a crying fit yet is a miracle! So tonight, I’m going to dive into a vat of wine and spend most of tomorrow on the sofa, drinking mulled wine, eating chocolate, doing a bit of Christmas decorating and watching Christmas films. Elf arrived on Blu Ray this morning so am looking forward to watching that tomorrow.
Are you in the festive spirit yet? Or are you like me, a bit Bah Humbug & just looking forward to the time off & putting your feet up?
