Ok, so as we speak, Mummy is having a little breakdown. It is the evening of December 2nd and we are nowhere near ready for Christmas. Ok, I can hear you from here – ‘It’s only the 2nd of December! There is plenty of time yet!’ You are right, but Mummy likes the tree up at least on 1 December. And last year, our first Elf, Cookie came to stay with us – all boxed with a letter and treats and everything, under the tree ready for me for the morning.
This was the scene on 1 December last year:
And this year:
Now there are some reasons why this is. Big sis is 16 next week, and we all went to Cardiff last weekend for her to go to a concert as her birthday present. I was poorly from Thursday last week with tonsillitis, and because I was very poorly in the night with a raging temperature which touched 40 degrees on Thursday and Friday nights, Mummy didn’t get much sleep either. She was very worried about me. She has been exhausted this week.
Last night we met Daddy for tea in town, then went to our local village pantomine – my first one, which I loved. We didn’t get home until 10.30pm. I was asleep!
This weekend we are off to Lapland UK, then staying over in Bristol to meet up with MeeMee (biggest sis who is in Uni) on Sunday morning to see the lovely Christmas Market there. So nothing will get done this weekend either!
Our tree broke last year, it had lights built into it which stopped working and couldn’t be fixed so we needed a new one. Which we bought tonight. And you can see that it is up now, but that’s as far as we have got. I waited up, jiggling around, so excited to decorate it, but we ran out of time. I am still not 100% well and was very tired. As I went to bed, Mummy promised me I can help tomorrow.
Cookie, our Elf hasn’t arrived yet – Mummy says he has got held up at the North Pole, and will be with us very soon 😉
Please don’t stress Mummy, I am sure we are not the only family who is not ready. I am sure there are others who are not sat by twinkling Christmas Tree lights sipping hot chocolate with Christmas songs playing whilst the house is like a Pinterest board, and the visiting Elf is where he should be.
We are together, we are healthy, we are too busy living and building amazing memories at the moment. It will all be ok 🙂
Are you ready for Christmas?
