Had a very poorly end to the week so this is my first post for a few days. I foolishly downloaded a game onto my iPad and must have somehow spent too much time playing it. Who knew pretend farming was so exhausting?! That combined with a new air fresher in the house that my brain didn’t like very much, and a truly wonderful afternoon with the whole family yesterday has kept me away. Mr Brain is struggling a bit today so I don’t imagine I’ll be able to keep up with posting daily anymore. My health has to come first you understand.
On a chirpier note Christmas has come early to my bedroom. Yippee! I’ve decided to have my own tree upstairs so that even on my bed days I can get into the festive spirit and not miss out. It’s a fake tree, which aren’t as lovely, but I’m not sure I can cope with the smell of a real tree and they’re very messy. I’m not sure my brother would have been too happy about having to carry a big, real life tree up two flights of stairs!
My presents were ordered online and delivered by the postman (who likes to laugh at me when I answer the door with Wolverine hair and in my pjs, horrible man!) I will wrap them in stages over the next few weeks (or maybe some kind soul will have to do them for me) and hope my hands and arms are strong enough to write the rest of my cards (legibly) in the next few days. I may have accidentally eaten some of the presents already so they’ll need to be reordered. Don’t worry they were edible!!!
Not everyone loves Christmas, but I most certainly do. My Christmas jumpers are ready and waiting to be worn with pride. Boxing Day is probably my favourite day of the year. We’re a very close family and the grandparents, aunties and uncles and cousins all come to us for Round Two of Christmas dinner and presents. I have my outfit planned already. (That’s not necessarily an illness thing. I’ve always been organised about such important things!)
I’m so pleased my room was decorated when it was because I’ve had to have a few bed days recently. They don’t seem so bad when my room looks very much like Santa’s grotto.
