fast forward me please

If just one lovely person out there in cyber land had a couple of tips on how to survive the next month, I would be eternally grateful.

Christmas seems to be coming at me from every angle at the moment, and I just can't cope with it. Every time I turn on the TV, I'm bombarded by a million adverts promising the best presents, the fattest turkey, and a dozen plastic faces sporting wide toothed grins. Who are obviously enjoying the most amazing Christmas ever.

As soon as I step into a shop I can immediately hear the dreaded Christmas tunes making the usual rounds. Someone change the record please. I really don't think I can cope with 3 more weeks of Noddy Holder screaming, "Its Chrisssstmaas...!" My ears are bleeding.

And as for people posting on facebook about Christmas, well, that's another story. But I really don't need to know that you've just seen the Coca-Cola advert, its been around for 10 years, I think its an established fact that you will see it some time over the next month.

Oh dear. I really am a miserable bitch tonight. Apologies.

I just don't think I've got the strength to survive this month.

I want to go to bed, fall asleep and wake up again in January.

It doesn't happen very often but I've just burst into tears as I'm sat here....I think its time to stop typing...



  1. You're certainly not being a miserable bitch. As an atheist I don't go in for the whole seasonal nonsense either.

    I've not seen that oh-so-sickening Coke advert, counting my lucky stars that the can of said product sat next to me doesn't have that sodding annoying Santa on it.

    Hhhmm...Santa is an anagram of Satan...

  2. I know just how you feel, Susie - apart from having always worked in retail and dreading Xmas because it lasts so long for us in the trade (4 months for 3 days, really?!), I was exactly where you are this time last year...and my Xmas last year was a blur (as was Jan and Feb and a bit of March, though sun and late spring made it better). Have a 12 Days of Susie where you remind yourself (or have family and friends do so if it's too hard at the moment) that you are wonderful and worthy and loved. There is so much commercialism and materalism around at this time of year, but your family and friends, the love they have for you and the love you have for them is what's important. Keep on keeping on. With love, Deb xxx
