Phew, it's all quiet again. Hubbie has finished tenderly basting the unnecessarily, large turkey. I wish he lavished that much attention on me! He's carried it off to the in-laws for lunch. And the cat has finally settled down for a snooze, now that the smell of turkey has faded. She'll get her special portion later. My total sum of 3 presents are wrapped & a few Christmas texts sent. Now that's a busy morning for me.
I am quite tempted to join pus for a nap, but it will soon be time to be off to the in-laws myself, & I like to walk there so that I feel like I have achieved something healthy for the day. Spoons are always in short supply for me at this time of year, even though Christmas is a very low key affair in our household of 3.
This year I am proud to say that I have managed not to let the dark clouds of depression blight proceeding too much. But it's been a struggle at times with the added burden of new, & still unexplained symptoms during the course of the year.
But one good thing that has come out of it all, is that I have found this site, & made some friends who understand & support me in my lupus journey. I know now that I am not alone in all this, & that is a huge relief after so many years of isolation.
Merry Christmas, one & all. X
