I'm a bit ho hum about Xmas
I'm not a scrooge, a Grinch or a plain ol meanie
I'm just not that into Xmas.
Pinterst boards around the world have just shrivelled up and died.......
Let me clarify.
I love the day itself...spending time with family and sharing great food, thoughtful gifts and having a long sleep after lunch...
It's the lead up and hype I'm not fussed on.
Xmas carols make my hair stand on end, tinsel freaks me out, glace cherries are icky and don't get me started on pine trees.
|Gosh, what.....big thighs you have...|
|Creepy, creepy, creepy....the little hairs on my arms have gone hoo ha|
Maybe if I lived in a world with snow that doesn't come out of a can, where cherries weren't $18 a kilo and roast turkey didn't turn you into a shrivelled, melted mess of despair and a life long fear of "breast or thigh"...
I do like the shopping and wrapping, meal planning (yes, I said it...meal planning...no I don't have an actual planner), crossing fingers and toes that I don't have to work and that the important people in my life are near and dear.
My Xmas budget this year is small...
I will man up, solder on and bravely plough through the world of tinsel and pine cones and wreaths (which I don't mind at all...) and search Pinterst for a few DIY gift inspirations.
