NanoPoblano / NaBloPoMo ended an eon ago.
I predictably failed that, further guaranteed by a spider bite that went septic* and a head cold that had the audacity to FCB. I just made that acronym up. The CB stands for ‘come back’ the F stands for. Um.
(Sorry, still suffering from lots of congestion)
In between times, I have managed to work, sleep and eat and do some Christmas shopping. On the latter point, I had the following conversation with my mum.
MUM: Santa looks lonely, do you think I should offer to sit on his lap?
I glanced over at the Shopping-Mall-Santa, by himself, except for his ‘elf’ randomly pressing buttons on a camera surrounded by a sea of props and an absent queue of parents and children.
ME: He’s a good-looking Santa.
ME: I don’t mean like, “Phwoah”!
*Mum laughs so hard she can’t breathe properly*
ME: I mean, he has a real beard and actually looks like he could be Santa.
In other news, I strung up fairy lights for Christmas and I’m thinking about making it permanent. Related: My house is in disarray, I’m drinking wine and eating left-overs.
I had a wonderful family-ish Christmas and however you and yours celebrated this time, I hope it was marvellous.
Whatever you do, make it merry.
See you in the new year.
*FYI: Right up until I posted, I had a spider bite that went ‘sceptic’. I didn’t realise we had so much in common.
