It all started around 7am when I climbed back into my attic bedroom carrying my biggest gift . ( I had been downstairs lighting the stove to warm the room up)
I sat in bed and wondered if I should open the bottle of fizzy wine or the chocolates it contained. Decided on the wine as that was more ” wicked” ( have low standards ) and I knew if I thought about it too long then I would end up keeping it for a more suitable occasion that never happens.
Feeling cheerfully wicked I put on my old clothes (why dress up)
Spending Christmas by oneself should, I think be all about doing exactly what you want.
The day progressed very nicely.
Then I made a Christmas card and sent it to a lot of friends.
That was followed by an hour long video chat with two of my sisters which I enjoyed a lot , even if I didn’t have time to put on my Christmas jumper before they phoned.
Meanwhile I was hearing back from friends all over the world . …well some of the world anyways.
Soon it was lunch time and the lasagne I made yesterday waited for me in the fridge. I had a baked potato and tuna mayonnaise instead, just because I could.
After lunch I had time to read the new book I saved for Christmas. ( I fell asleep)
Then I got a bit worried about not having done anything all day…. so I got out some paint and glaze and brightened up a small painting I had used as a Christmas card and had altered the colour with an app. Someone online had liked the bright colours so I thought it might be a good idea to adjust it in reality. Not sure if I like it or not
And now it’s wine time. ( the fizzy wine is in the fridge and will probably last till new year.)
I hope everyone reading this had a lovely satisfying day however they spent it.
