Back with another YouTube video post, I'm afraid. Bad blogging, I know. Rubbing moisturiser into my face makes my arms feel like they're about to drop off, so I am cutting myself some slack. Maybe in the new year I will manage to return with some real life and a photo or two. This is probably about the least festive song you can imagine, but I wanted to listen to it since it is the shortest day/longest night of the year (isn't it?) and once I heard it, it felt kind of relaxing in its un-Christmassyness. So maybe it will be just what you need.
My parents will be arriving in a few hours to spend Christmas with us. My mum is essentially bringing Christmas with her, having loaded the car with food, plates etc. She even phoned this morning to check whether she needed to bring her own trifle bowl. Meanwhile I have done nothing and my mind is blank. I feel useless and awful for dragging my parents away from their beautiful festive home to spend Christmas here. We have the Christmas tree up as well as a few bits of tinsel here and there, but I am not getting a festive vibe from our home at all. Perhaps it is masked by the mess. I've been trying to clean and tidy all morning, but I don't think it has made any difference other than making Dulcie even more grumpy. Thank goodness for my parents and thank goodness that my parents see time with Dulcie as the world's best reward. Let's pray that my mum works a wee Christmassy miracle when she gets here. If anyone can, she can!
