Christmas came and Christmas went, but why is it so hard. Did you buy every present and did you send every card!

We have been shopping, planning and organizing for weeks. Three hours in to Christmas day and hardly anybody speaks!Fifty weeks of eating well and exercising daily then for one week we eat and drink our weight in crap and we do it gaily!

We spend this time of year wishing mankind well we smile and fawn but underneath do we care, do we hell! Mothers run themselves ragged buying gifts and food . For what, one wrong word or look and some one gets in a mood.

Stress, stress it is all bloody stress tell me what is the point! Does anyone know what it is all about does anyone get the point? Tired I am so tired of putting on a face  if I tell the true my thoughts are disgrace.

Smile, have a drink, and another have a choccy. There be a love give this pressie to your mother.Oh! thank you so much I really needed another of those and that too? my how thoughtfully your presents do you  chose. You don’t like that I can tell your face says it all. I know I should not of bothered I think I’ll have another drink sod it lets get slaughtered.

OMG It is New Year next another non event a time for new beginnings, or just a time to regret all the hard earned cash you’ve sent! Wonderful a new year , just don’t get me started. The new year, is it any better than the one before we still wake up broken hearted. No you can call me a grinch or a moaner if you like I don’t care I have had enough I refuse to do it all again next year I have decided to take a hike.

Next year I refuse to put on the charade again

I have done it once too often and I am not going to put myself through any more of this pain. You can think what you like I am tired and I do not like to see everyone put under so much strain. Christmas came and Christmas went, but why is it so hard. Did you buy every present and did you send every card!

    Wow, it’s just a wee bit sad to realise how many people (I’ve read alike on other posts) have put on a charade for Christmas. Amazing. What ARE we doing???

    With Daniel & me, we spent the whole day in the flat doing our own thing, but before that we were together and he gave me two gifts – a body scrub & some anti itch cream he had clearly got advice from, from a pharmacist. This was massively thoughtful because this year, mid year with those attacks by my third sister wishing me dead and sending me up to 16 emails a day from different email addresses etc, I developed itching side effects, breaking my skin, picking at it, tearing skin off. So though it’s calmed down already and there’s just a few bits now healing, this was SO thoughtful of him.

    So, nope, no charade – just us in the flat after gift giving & breakfast together – but then we went to my sister “Wendy’s” for tea. There was no charades… but in its place a lot of long silences!! Which would you rather, Willow?!

    But kudos to you, for determining how YOUR Christmas will be next year.

    Willow I found years ago it wasn’t worth the effort or cost so the hubs and I sat the family down said if your under 13 we buy you A gift, over 13 you come to be with family, you bring a dish, help cook or clean up that is what family is/does. If you don’t like the concept well we will continue to celebrate Christs birth with out you and all the commercialism. It has been nearly ten years we have had no complaints, our stress level is so much lower, and with out the stress we all tend to talk more and really enjoy each other. We are by no means a “normal” family but we don’t care, e just love. Hope you can stick to your guns next year and don’t let anyone tell you how to celebrate, what to cookm decorate etc. They don’t like it they can walk out the same door they came in! Hugs and love ((xx))

      You have it right,your Christmas sound really good. If it were just immediate family it would be easier,l as I love our boys and their partners and my hubbie too. But there are always more people to sort . Too difficult to explain here. Next year it does look like we will striking out on our own. I can’t express this correctly, I love my family but Christmas is very hard it always makes me sad and stressed and I have to put on the face and make the moves. Thank you for taking me seriously.
