What I Want For Christmas

Well, here we are…..Christmas Eve already. How did that happen? Seems I’ve been snoozing the time away, but at least the presents are wrapped, the fridge is stocked with wine and there’s enough chocolate in the house to graze (gorge myself) on over the festive period. The advent calendar has been disemboweled and is on its way to the recycling bin.

I have finished my massive house clean. The house is aired and the dead mouse which has been lying outside my back door for weeks has finally been laid to rest in the compost. I have three days of fun and frolics lined up before The Teenager visits his dad the day after Boxing Day. Where though, can I find some extra energy? I am so, so tired. Exhausted. All I want for Christmas is energy.

MS and Christmas is a double-edged sword. It’s great that it becomes socially acceptable, almost mandatory, to have a little kip in the afternoon, wine glass in hand, paper hat askew, ┬ábut the run of get togethers, one after the other can be hard. I’m turning into a tired and crabby old Grinch.

Anyway, enough whingeing. I’m just about to programme the Sky planner, filling it up with Gone With The Wind, Miranda, Downton and all the other usual suspects. My sparkly top for Christmas Day is hanging in my wardrobe, I’m resigned to wearing flat shoes and I think we’re pretty much ready for Christmas. I don’t plan on doing anything more strenuous than choosing what to eat next, which Quality Street to snaffle and reading out bad jokes from crackers.

I wish you all a fantastic Christmas. Thank you so much for your comments over the last few months – I love receiving them. On Christmas Day and Boxing Day I will be choosing some of my favourite posts, kind of like a top ten countdown, in true Christmas fashion. Cheers and have a good one! x

    Can I say how nice it is to have found you. It’s nice to find an MSer with a sense of humour and a touch of realism
    I prefer not to think I have MS but my body has decided to become Spanish, and can only cope with an afternoon siesta
    So I look forward to many many more blogs in the new year
    Merry chrostmas and Ola !!!

      Hi Tony!
      What a lovely comment – thank you so much! I know what you mean about the siesta, but sometimes mine are around 10am, lol. I’m looking forward to a quick snooze before heading to my mum’s this afternoon. If I could just get The Teenager out of his bed….
      Have a fabulous Christmas and take it easy!

    Merry Christmas!!!
    I hope you have not overdone it and will be able to recharge your batteries successfully!
    Have a lovely time and the teenager will hopefully be a great help to you once he is up and about!
    I have got two (19&22) myself and they can be quite useful once they understand you need a little help.
    All my best wishes to you at this fun but knackering time of year.
    Love from Sue. X

      Hi Sue!
      Thank you so much for your comment. Am flagging a bit now, it’s just gone 5pm and still got to go out for a Christmas Eve curry! Lots of sneaky naps in order I think, over the next few days.
      Have a wonderful Christmas!
