I'm not normally down, infact far from it, being happy and having a big smile on my face is one of my best traits, which is probably why for me the worse time of the year to be single is Christmas and even worse the dreaded New Years Eve…
Last year I was kept busy, I was away for 5 weeks appearing in a Christmas show, (It's 'Panto' time here in the UK) and our only day off was Christmas day which I spent with my family so it was ok.
And a couple of years ago I booked myself onto a last minute cruise over Christmas and New Year, although just to rub salt in the wound I had to pay a double fare for 2 people, even though it was just me, they don't have single cabins! but this year because I'm home alone I haven't bothered to put up any decorations, as far as I’m concerned Christmas and especially New Years Eve is cancelled !...
Don’t get me wrong on Christmas day itself I won't be on my own. Although I have a long days driving, I’ll be getting up at 4.30am (I'll probably bump into Santa on his way home !) and I wont be home again till gone midnight but it'll be worth it because I’ll be spending the actual day having a wonderful time with my family, So at least I wont have to pull my own cracker !! but that’s only one day. The rest of the Holidays I’ll be ‘home alone’ with just the TV for company. Even watching old repeats on TV are better when shared.
So am I the only miserable bugger on here or has anyone else cancelled Christmas this year...
Does anyone feel the same, even if you have family and friends around you that this is the worse time to be single, because Christmas and New year just isn't the same without a partner to share it with ?
Although it's not too bad.. I've got Rudolph to keep me company !!
