Feeling a little Christmassy at last

Posted on Updated on

For several weeks there have been decorations in all the stores, piped Christmas music, festive menus in restaurants, Christmas tv ads to buy the latest must-have gift. I’ve spied homes decorated with twinkly lights since the beginning of November, all way before it felt necessary. I am not bah-humbug usually but the shine of the season has taken a while to reach me this year. Perhaps it’s been the mild weather here in the UK or the fact I am not working so I haven’t been caught up in the anticipation of office parties and Christmas Jumper Day and so on.

So happy to report ‘The Festive Spirit’ has now found me. Yay! The tree is up, looking pretty, favourite decorations taking pride of place and I’ve even had my first Christmas Turkey dinner (with friends with whom I do pub quizzes). I am also frantically knitting last minute Christmas gifts, which will be revealed at a later date after they’ve been gifted!

How festive is anyone else feeling?

    Struggled this year to get into the Xmas spirit, just because of illness in my family. Brings home how important the people around you are. I just find it all a bit too commercial these days.
    My tree isn’t up yet, but my dad’s home after his surgery, so I’m starting to do stuff. Xmas cards written and sent, Xmas tree isn’t up yet but will be before the week ends.
    I’ve been trying to reduce and recycle so tomorrow I’m making Xmas bags that can be re-used next year, instead of using wrapping paper. So the sewing machine is coming out in the morning.

      Sorry to read about illness in the family. It definitely does put other things into perspective. Yes, that’s exactly what I felt – too commercial. I hope you got the bags made – what a good idea, x
