After the rotten year we have had and feeling so low because of my miserable husbands attitude towards me, I decided not to bother with Christmas this year as I felt I had nothing to look forward to but fetching and carrying for him for god knows how long.
Then I thought 'sod him' why should I let him spoil it for me, I have my health and my sons and their families who have given me three lovely grandchildren. At the beginning of December I dragged out all the trimmings, trees, lights etc. and went overboard at online Tesco and Asda buying everything Chrismassy known to man (if we are marooned for the next 6 months I could feed the street), my husband of course said what are you bothering for, what is there to celebrate, I told him I had my health and he was still alive so why should I let him bring me down. Our front room is like a Grotto and the grandchildren were absolutely over the moon when they saw it.
We are on our own this morning but one of our sons is coming over in the afternoon with his family and we are going to our other sons tomorow, depending on grumpy's attitude.
I will not let him spoil it for me as when you get to 70 years of age you enjoy each day as it comes, and that is my new years resolution. Don't let the bug### get you down, and it is my way or the highway.
I am going to enjoy today and tomorrow and take what next year brings in my stride.
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas day.
