I'm so sorry but I just don't feel festive. I really wish I did, but I don't. I have been trying, I promise. This weekend I made gingerbread, listened to carols (on loop) and watched Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street (complete with lisping little girl) and It's a Wonderful Life. In a Church. With Candles. You know that when Jimmy Stewart can't make you feel Christmassy that you may as introduce yourself as Scrooge. Bah Humbug.
So, no pictures of mince pies, no pictures of the gingerbread (even though it looked lovely) and definitely no pictures of the mulled wine with its cloves, star anise and cinnamon sticks. I just feel a bit mneugh.
I'm going to stop before I ruin everyone's festive buzz. But, believe me, just because I can't make myself feel 'ho ho ho' doesn't mean I don't wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a FANTASTIC, SUCCESSFUL and VERY HAPPY 2009.
Well, at least I decorated the tree...
