Ooo and I am settling down to watch the nightmare before Christmas for the very first time ... I have tea in my new cup and have got scones with jam on
Just popped in to wish everyone a merry christmas! Time to wrap my last few presents.
Muchos love to all.
I have postponed shortbread making until tomorrow morning so please continue to queue overnight. I will provide hot drinks
oh nooooooo we need a pacman emoticon on here
Can't believe we have to wait for shortbread!
I can't either mousey *shakes head* I think we need a compel the baking bear to get on with it plan
I did make some mince pies if that helps?
Just nipping in with a big Chrimble hug from me and the tall bloke, and a perkeerk from the girls x
Merry Christmas everyone!
I've opened my presents - a new dressing gown/bath robe and some lovely glam Swarovski earings. I'm wearing them both now!
Its just me and Mr Soup this year having a quiet Christmas together. Visiting family for New Year. A lazy morning planned before cooking dinner later on. I bought Mr Soup a half hour flight in a Tiger Moth which he wasn't expecting. I love giving real surprises. Have a good day everyone.
((((((((by eck and Mr by'eck))))))
Wishing you both a day that gets better.
Merry christmas all.
Merry Christmas Soupy and richfar By Eck I hope that didn't come across badly - I meant I'm glad you are there rather than Mr By Eck should be grateful you are if you see what I mean.
I've had the nicest Christmas ever (I don't do Christmas lunch and lots of visiting and stuff - I prefer to enjoy a short amount of time and quit while I'm ahead so the rest of the day will be just a quiet normal day.) I had an absolutely blast with SOLBsis' mini1 and mini2 - I just feel really, really happy, We laughed and played and played and danced to silly songs and laughed some more. I am so, so grateful that I am well enough to really be their aunty again - I just feel so happy and alive playing with them. SOLBsis and Mr SOLBsis said a few times 'you don't have to keep playing so energetically you can take a break if you want to' ... but the truth is I didn't want to I was having as much (if not more) fun than the mini's. Being back for them is the greatest thing about being well
So glad to hear about your day SOLB. *raises a glass to being well* So often people see the person as the mental health presentation without realising there is someone very different underneath it all. I think you have demonstrated that so well. I hope lurkers who might not understand or who have loved ones going through it can see that too.
I'm just having a rest before Christmas pudding with brandy sauce. We are living in a caravan at the moment (won't bore you with the details why) and its been a lovely day so far. Done full Christmas dinner with a turkey crown and all the trimmings, despite all the doom mongers who told us we couldn't do Christmas in a caravan. Vivaldi's Four Seasons is playing on CD and I'm so content.
I think that's true - to be honest even I forgot who I was underneath. I'm really enjoying seeing people I've not seen for a few months and sparkling at them Wow kudos to pulling off Christmas in a caravan; delighted that you survived the doubters it can be done and even more so that you had a good time. I feel very very lucky tonight, it sounds like a sentimental Christmas post but to be honest I think I've felt like that most nights for the last month or so. Lots of love to you festive friends (oh and on a virtual running club point of business I'm attempting a really little mile or so tomorrow before braving town with SOLBTitchysis - hang in there asthma lungs)
Oh bless you darling (((by eck)))
I've made a meditation for health that you might like
Hope you enjoy it
I never used to have the patience for meditation, mind was too active but I'm finding it easier these day. I'll have a click on that in a minute thanks.
Morning SOLBy. Plenty of room in a caravan by the way.
