Christmas has arrived!

Christmas has finally arrived at ours, took 3 days for me to dress the tree etc. Do a bit, rest an hour, do a bit more, rest for two hours. ....oh my days this fibro malarkey is such a beast! At this rate they'll be staying up till next Christmas, not looking forward to packing them away again to say the xx Merry Christmas to you all!!

  • Hi, my trimmings were brought down 30th Nov. Still not all up, I gave my big tree and baubles, lights, and skirt to my grandchildrens primary school, well appreciated, and now I've got one that has just lights, I've got that many ornaments and things it's just overwhelming, and I'm beaten before I start, the first bend in the bag, my back start, then my arms and hands start, time to sit. I am now of them mind that whatever I put up I'll have to get down and we have no visitors except immediate family so they inderstand so I might put half of it back, it's still festive looking. Yours look beautiful it makes me phew just looking at it, well beautiful just beautiful. Take care.

Could just cry but then I think I am just feeling sorry for myself! There I feel a lot better now I have had a rant. Thanks for listening everyone. Hope you are all having a good day!
