12 Shoes Of Christmas - Day 5
I'm having a little bit of a meltdown today. A week today, it's Christmas Eve. I don't know how that happened! I feel both November and December have just flown by. I haven't even tackled my Christmas cards yet (I have bought them, so I suppose that's something), but I've not wrapped anything, I still have something to get for my Dad and another little thing for Mum. It's supposed to be easier this year because my friends and I decided against us all sending presents (they all have children now, so I bought for the kids instead, but between 5 of them, there's 11 children). I've had a headache all week that only subsides to bring back my old pal, chest pain or sometimes I get both at once! Plus I have the usual tiredness, aches and pains, which don't go away just because it's Christmas.
We've had to change our plans this year because I'm so ill (well, more ill than 2 years ago) and instead have my sister and her brood coming here (just for a short while as I can't really manage them all day) rather than us travel through there. My younger sister thinks it's great because it means more time at home to play with our toys. Aged 33 and 35! Actually I am getting Starlily the unicorn, so I will be wanting to play with that (or at least I better after harping on about it all year). I'm missing getting out and hearing Christmas music and seeing the pretty lights and decorations though. You can't really capture that atmosphere sitting at home all day. Anyway enough moaning, the shoes today are both red. Tomi is wearing an older style, the cortesan mary-jane with corsage and I'm sporting my red Truly Magical from this season with the 'heel-less' wedge thing. I thought these Hello Kitty socks looked Christmassy from a distance!
