Trying to get into the festive spirit

1 Dec

If there’s something that makes you feel acutely single at this time of year, it’s going to pick up a Christmas tree alone. And then carrying it home. Alone.

It’s something I find myself doing every year. And every year I have it in my head that carrying the tree home will be no problem. Let me tell you, when a tree is 6ft and you are just over 5ft, carrying it is a problem.

But, I got it home.

I put the decorations up, I put the lights on, I got out all my Christmas favourites including my reindeer made of pink tinsel. My flat resembles a Santa’s grotto (with a slight Japanese twist).

I. Do. Not. Feel. Christmassy.

But I’ll keep surrounding myself with this stuff until I do.

    It’s snowing like crazy here today, it definitely makes things feel a little more Christmassy.

    At least you are still fighting to keep some semblance of normalcy. Besides its one less thing you have to do now before the holidays. Congrats:)

      Yeah, the tree then fell over spilling mucky water all over my white carpets and breaking several decorations. Maybe a sign?! In an unrelated incident, I was standing on a stool to reach my kitchen cabinets, slipped and cut my leg open. Not a great start to the festive season! I am ready for 2013 to be DONE. YOU need to write more. I miss your posts. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. x

        Hahaha you are absolutely too much!!! I feel for you hun! I want this awful year to be over too. I’m already tired of the cold and being bottled up in my room with a TV a computer and my thoughts. I liked it better when TV was a distraction from thinking as opposed to the thoughts distracting me from the TV. Sometimes I just Pandora on and sit there for 30-45 minutes doing nothing. It is inhumanely depressing I swear! I hope your leg gets better soon:)
