The rest of us have the pressure of Christmas shopping, attending Christmas events, writing cards to people we never see, visiting people, decorating the house and so on. If I was well enough I would love to be involved in doing something for people in need. I have worked many Christmas days and most of them were good, the only thing I didn't like was working in a restaurant, people were horrid to the staff and didn't seem to recognise that we were missing our own Christmas for them. The work in care homes, hospitals and home care was always a nice feeling. We went on holiday one Christmas too before we had Emily at Schloss Hotel Rosenegg it was a much more traditional Christmas and was lovely. Christmas day was a bit strange as there was nothing happening, we had no presents and we left on Boxing Day. it was strange being away from family, but I would do it again.

Travelling has always been difficult though and with Emily too it is practically impossible, but would be great to show her this side of Christmas and the wonderful scenery. She would just want to play in the snow all the time.
I do hate the commercial side of Christmas, it seems to have become about who can spend the most money and give the best gifts. I do not miss being able to go around crowded shops, I do all my shopping online or send someone else!
I have to break off now to go and see Emily in her music club concert. More ramblings later if I feel up to it. I am in quite a bit of pain and feel very dizzy.
