  • Hi John

    Thank you and wishing you peace, health and happiness.

  • THANK YOU, PEACE AND LOVE TO YOU

  • Thank you Spartan and I wish you best wishes for the xmas session and that you enjoy celebrating in the way you choose as I too step away from expected tradition.

    I wish we lived on a small island where everyone on here was able to travel a short distance to enable us to have a get together to offer understanding and support in the real world rather than the virtual.

  • that is what i have been thinking for a long time,peace and love to you, and you know what i bet we could all have a really good time not having to explain anything to anyone as we are all in the same boat

  • Precisely I so agree. I have a feeling this site is going to be very busy with either a few making multiple posts and responses or perhaps even a lot joining in on xmas day as we will be drawn together as virtual friends that totally understand why the day can be so difficult for a multiple of reasons.

  • I agree :).

    Sounds like the Headway outreach centre I volunteer for on Friday mornings. I make the drinks for everybody in the group, including myself if I remember haha.

    So this online forum is like a virtual outreach centre and I can make the e-drinks as well as post some of my art :).

  • Thanks Matt I will have a think about what I fancy and place my order - for a drink I mean!! Actually our usual Xmas tipple is Schloer cos my son can have that too but thinks its like alcohol!! Just got to decide on the flavour.

  • Thanks for the Christmas wish, John :).

    And a merry Christmas to you too, grinch or no grinch :).

  • thank you for that pal, the only Grinch i have got is my BI,

  • Got to admit my pressents that I bought last year only a few weeks, after coming out of hospital, bought my wife a fantastic dress while I was away with the fairys..... I had wanted to help shopping which worked so well, not!

    I did also buy a few things like just coffee beans for my sister.... So she had to get the ground. Probably more!

  • THE ONE THING THAT MADE ME SMILE AND HAPPY WAS MY BEST FRIEND REACTION THAT IS MY GRANDSON WHEN I GAVE HIM A TOSHIBA LAPTOP FOR CHRISTMAS 2 WEEKS AGO , HEY WHY WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS DAY LIFE IS TOO SHORT AS WE ALL KNOW.

  • Hi John, Thanks and Merry Xmas to you. I think you've got the right idea, its not that we don't like Xmas it's just such hard work on our heads. K

  • spot on it is too much hard work, peace and love to you.

  • For a second, after reading that you find Christmas difficult, I thought your post said. . . . . . . "so I shall not get dressed". And that would be my perfect day ; just lolling around in dressing gown & slippers with a full English breakfast and a couple of crosswords.

    I've had Christmas periods where I've felt out of sync with others, but then before I can say 'Red nosed reindeer' it's all over. . . . . . . . and the weeks of buying presents and wrapping them in shiny paper with ribbons and writing all those cards etc.,etc., is history & was all for what ??

    But I confess I can't resist invitations from family and usually spend Xmas day with son or daughter. The days of having everyone here whilst I spend most of the day in the kitchen are gone since my bi ; I now have neither the energy nor the inclination.

    But not celebrating Christmas doesn't make you a Scrooge, John. Let's face it we're supposed to be celebrating Jesus's birth but how many of us are actually doing that ?

    It should be an everyday event where we share what we have with others and be kind to one another (fat chance in the real world).

    But I was so ill last year prior to Christmas and one night, feeling very isolated, I posted on Headway. The messages of support and affection which I got in reply were so heart-warming and I was shocked, but so grateful, to read all the kind sentiments and good wishes. And suddenly, Christmas wasn't such a miserable place after all.

    I'm so glad you were able to share some happy moments with your grandson ; I know he's your favourite person & I bet he was over the moon with his laptop.

    Thank you so much, John, for your good wishes. It's gestures like this which mean so much more than the usual Xmas stuff.

    Sincere best wishes to you too, throughout December and way beyond.

    Love, Cat xxx

  • thank you for your support cat it is very welcome , peace and love to you.

  • Christmas to me is about hope and light in the darkness of winter. So I hope you find moments of peace and joy, as you had with your grandson. And at its best Christmas can be a time of loving connection with family and friends. However you spend it I wish you moments of joy and peace, and a tasty treat or two. Love Vanessa

  • thank you for those kind words this is the only place i seem to get them that said you all understand too well what it is like to have a BI , peace and love to you.
