People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*

Tis the season to be ... pooped

My plan today was to get all the shit done that I needed to get done (much wrapping of presents, MUCH housework and MUCH MUCH tidying up of our piles of crap) EARLY, so that I could have a nice relaxing Christmas Eve for a change. Every year I'm full of grand aspirations to sit down to dinner in a clean and tidy house, with a pile of beautifully wrapped presents under the tree, but no matter what I do I end up battling with ribbons and bows and glittery paper into the wee small hours. I'm just incapable of being organised for Christmas. As with so many of my plans before, today's got royally fucked as well, and I have only now (at 00.14, Christmas Day) sat down, for the first time since approx 11am Christmas Eve morning. I look and feel like Quasimodo, as I've been hunched over wrapping presents for the last 3 hours, and was hunched over scrubbing everything in sight for the three hours before that.


Anyway, everything got done in the end, and I'm just heading off to bed with a cup of tea and my book, so all is well.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Completely exhausted from living life with Mark's family for 4 days. It was quite good fun though. I will probably post about it in due course.

Currently lying in bed enjoying a well earned day of rest before I go to see my parents at the cottage.

Loved your latest post.
