My Not So Secret Diary

The Christmas Spirit

StreetChristmas shopping! I’m finally allowing myself to get into the festive spirit. I find this season hard, not actually because I don’t drink, although many would assume that’s the reason. It’s more that I want everything to be right and I worry that it won’t be, which makes me stress out and then guess what… things don’t go so well. We took three out of four kids shopping today, and had a lovely time. I only had one minor wobble, but it was a particularly busy shop so I’m letting myself off. I left the shop and immediately felt better so it didn’t spoil the day. It’s so nice to spend time with the kids, the older ones are so busy that we don’t do it as often as we should, but it was lovely, and I managed to buy a couple of presents which is really organised for me!
