Not gonna lie, all this build up is getting a bit stressful now. From present shopping on a threadbare shoestring to the realisation you left it way too late to get your train ticket and could be going on a European mini break for the cost of your trip home, it’s been real, too real.
The end is in sight. With any luck you are just a couple of tear inducing last minute shopping trips and a few ‘well I really deserve this’ drinks away from the big day. Basically, your chance to CHILL is coming so hold on tight. Unless you agreed to host this year, then we’re praying for you, you brave unfortunate babes.
Of course the stress levels won’t just casually drop come December 25th, there will be hurt feelings, grateful feelings, loved up feelings, seriously pissed off and probably drunk feelings but to summarise…
Unless handled with caution, the aforementioned feels could result in a nausea inducing roller coaster of a day, so here’s how to boss it boohoo style…
You are in the OMG I can’t wait for Christmas camp OR the feeling fragile and antisocial from the night before crew, either way your mum/dog/kid sister ain’t gonna let you sleep so you may as well drag yourself out of bed and head downstairs. Give out some hugs, grab a breakfast cocktail and curl up on the couch, just in time for The Cat in the Hat (7.35am BBC2), old school laughs, warm feelings and fizz will bring you back to life.
You don’t like The Cat in the Hat?!
