CHRISTMAS ADDITIONS

HIGHLIGHT OF THE DAY: Having a cosy day with my ma
________________________________________________




I won't tell a lie: for the first time in a long time I've struggled to get into the festive spirit.
Now, I <3 Christmas with every ounce of my being. Buddy the Elf is my spirit animal and Christmas trees are my crack, but for whatever reason this years festivities creeped up on me far too quickly and life just didn't seem all that sparkly.
So, to rectify this I picked up a few little bits and pieces to get myself in a merrier mood, things like: 

a christmas jumper
a tub of quality street
a christmas candle
festive (and dirt cheap) pyjamas
lush bath goodies
fairy lights
wrapping ribbons, paper and bows


And yes, these have all done a damn good job of perking me up, it has to be said.
Ultimately though, I guess my point is that it isn't always as simple as: 

'The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.'

Wise words though, Will Ferrell.
Rather, its about not putting too much pressure and expectation on this time of year,
just enjoy the little things and look forward to a day of eating, if nothing else.
Because remember, people don't put the bad parts of Christmas on their Instagram feeds.
