I remember when I was a kid and Christmas was all about family and presents, probably the same for most people right? Dad would always wake us up and get the Christmas tunes going on the old cassette player before putting dinner in the oven. It was good until my Mum and Dad separated then it was just up to us to choose where we’d want to be on Christmas day and spend the day with one of the parents. Every year it got worse and worse just like the family situation, My Mum and Dad probably haven’t seen each other for as long as I can remember, Shame they couldn’t put things aside and stop hating each other for the sake of their Children really.
As the years went on I became detached from the so called Family. And now Christmas is not about Family for me, It’s about having some days off work and spending time with my partner, forget the presents and food, just some time off with him. Forgive me for hating the whole ‘Christmas is a time for Family’ thing, but for some of us it really isn’t and I admit I have a bitterness about ‘Family’
Anyway I don’t want to sound like the Grinch! I’m lucky that my Partners family have welcomed me in and I’ve been invited to Christmas Dinner at his auntie and uncles house which I’d be a fool to say no to.
And I guess you could say I’m contradicting myself but the fact is when I’m sat at the dinner table with a proper family I’m always going to feel emotional.
Whatever your situation, spend Christmas with whatever or whoever makes you happy and relax.
Anyone else got that Monday feeling?
I woke up this morning and just wanted to phone in sick at work, motivation is something I struggle with a lot.
Whilst at work last week I was staring out the window watching this old frail man/woman who happened to be a member of staff at the Sainsbury’s supermarket opposite. He/She was collecting baskets and struggling to pile them up by the door at the front of the store, I kept watching throughout the day as this person (who looked as if they were in their late 60’s at least) kept piling the baskets by the door. I felt emotional and upset that for most people that is life. Being in my very early 20’s I dread to think of another say 40-50 years of working as it is a routine I struggle with even at this stage of my working life.
It’s weird how much I was thinking into things as I was watching this person, It kind of gave me a little bit of motivation and made me that bit more determined to go far in life. But then again it made me feel so deflated at the same time.
Trouble is I’m pretty impatient when It comes to what I want and if I want to be rich or successful I don’t want to have to wait for it! But looks like I’m going to have to bide my time and see where life takes me and hope I make the right decisions along the way.
I am hoping this Blog is going to be slightly more successful than my old one that I kind of just gave up on. I don’t quite know what I want to achieve from this blog at the moment, maybe some sort of diary that I can look back on for myself? Or most importantly a blog for people to see into my life and read about my experiences past and present.
As said I am Bisexual and this is something that has been quite hard to come to terms with when I first realised and I have gone on a roller coaster of a ride through the good the bad and the ugly.
Everything will be revealed in good time and I hope you enjoy my Blog.
Today I visited Greyhound Close in Hedgend to see what all the hype is about. It was well worth it even though it was raining!
Every house in the close was decorated and they seemed to be raising money for Naomi House charity, I couldn’t believe how busy it was with families everywhere braving the rain under umbrellas.
It was pretty spectacular and well worth a visit if you live nearby.
