Even though it did'nt snow on the coast where we spent Christmas, it is snowing here in the midlands, so this, to me, has been a White Christmas....which pleases me.

The preparation takes months and then ......whoosh......Christmas is gone.

I have no room left for food in this flabby old body of mine, and depressed myself today because I was (against my will and better judgement) with my daughter in (whisper it low...it is embarrassing) topshop and was encouraged to try on a top....and yes I also think that it was silly for me to even be in topshop and even more ridiculous to think that something in there could fit me......and I had forgotten the evil mirrors and harsh lighting and noise and heat and found myself thinking 'they do skimp on the material for these sleeves...this top is a bit tight'...and then realised that of course I am just fat and old. Anyway...my beautiful daughter came away from town with some goodies and I resolved to become thin and fit this coming year...YEAH RIGHT!!!

I'm also going to find a cure for cancer and establish world peace......

Just sticking stamps on cards....will post them in the morning....I know that it's way too late to post cards but if I just do it anyway MY CONSCIENCE WILL BE CLEAR....(the cards won't arrive in time but I CANNOT think about that now)....in my defence I have done loads of other things and I'm doing the best I can ....

Have just been to see Jools Holland in town.....with the wonderful Ruby Turner..........and it has snowed and I have a glass of wine and Christmas is coming and my family are well and at this point in time (cos I'm always scared of upsetting the fates who direct me) all is well with the world.......

Nearly Friday.....and then only two days at work next week.....I am so looking forward to being at home and getting ready for Christmas. I have presents to buy and wrap and cards to write (I know..how late am I?) and washing and ironing and ..oh you know how it is.......could have done some of it last weekend but went to Oxford for the weekend with friends, so drank too much wine and guinness and ate too much.....good weekend though and dust and washing and hoovering etc., is something I have been doing for WAY too long...memories are more important...

Is it any wonder my belly hips and arse are spreading north south east and west ... for many hours today I have just sat here reading, eating, and generally doing fuck all.....oh well never mind...tomorrow is another day....I might become someone who gives a toss!
