Wifey and myself are finally having a just us xmas day, I cant wait..got all the family for new yr but as I dont bother with alcohol much ill have a clear head unlike the kids..lol im looking forward to making huge amounts of noise and playing games..payback time
In laws (if I was married)...her parents, my very long term GF, my 2 kids, her brother & sister & partners, their 6 kids and me. Always a very hectic one on the day. I have 10 days off to escape from the world. Happy, happy
Normally it is just TVC and myself but we lost mum in September so this year dad is with us Christmas Eve-Boxing day, my brother is a single parent and normally they go to our folks on Xmas day, instead they are coming to us. So for the first time we are 'doing' Christmas and we are having all the trimmings.
If it would not upset a lot of people, I would stay at home alone, watch only pre-recorded non-Christmas TV shows, eat my normal diet, turn off my phones, and ignore the whole thing. This party blackout would last through to the New Year, then I would get on with my life again, such as it is!
My sister rings me at 00:00:01 every Jan 1st to do the HNY thing. I never answer, but she keeps on doing it.
If I had the money, I would take a bike to somewhere warm and sunny and get a few hundred miles of cycling in while half of the population of the world went mad.
So ... as usual, it will be family, friends, and a few big meals for me, and no cycling!
