Home Alone This Christmas?

  facepaint 21:52 21 Dec 2006

Not the sort of thing that many would admit.Is it?

This week I have been on my own as the family are in Disney Paris.Fog permitting ,back to-morrow.

I spent to-day doing a bit of cleaning up after a week of doing sweet fa,washed down by a few mixed drinks!
It took me back to when I was single ,lived in West London and spent many a Christmas on my own.And loved every minute of it.

I recall friends thinking it sad to be on one's own at this time of year.But is it? I suppose for many it must be.

PS - Some years ago I watched a French movie called Une Histoire where this guy sat watching tv and parked his fridge ,full of beers,right next to him.Does anyone know this film? After poor searching,it looks like the film title may have been something like Une Histoire .. bla bla bla>?

I think there's a drop of whiskey left in that bottle,before I dutifully wash it out.....lol.

I do hope that everyone has a happy and fun Christmas.

I will be alone this Christmas, it's ther one time of the year when my brother and sister-in-law have mother at their house giving me a well earned break. I shall not be lonely though, socialising at the pub and off to football with friends. So not really alone.

I live alone which I love but I will be spending Christmas with my extended family, as usual. Small family Christmas for us this year, just 15 or so plus only four small children ...

Christmas Day with my 2 daughters and New Year alone.

Christmas morning, I'll open my presents. Then around half 10 or 11 I'll go down my mate's house and we usually start on the whiskey, then down the pub. Last year a few of us were a bit knackered because we had a drink on Christmas eve - my one mate was still spread out on the setee and my other mate Whitey actually said "If I drink any of that son I'll be sick" when we offered him some whiskey. I don't really like whiskey either, but I get it down me at Christmas :-D Then I go home for Christmas dinner with the parents, then back up my mate's house for 4 where we drink until about 2 or 3 in the morning and I get it all on film. :-P Then we have nearly a week to recover for New Year's eve...

Kate B
I'm the one the extended family come to as usual.
This year we have a new baby the first for 22 years,3 months old, and dear aunt will be 96 in May. That should produce some good photos.

If getting it down you despite everything is the goal you should know that Metatone is nasty as well and a lot cheaper.

Usual family Christmas for us at our daughter's this time. We do it in turns. My turn next year.
Apron - we have no babies or children in the family yet and I envy you having the newborn and the elderly together. That will make for great family photos to treasure.

Yes Watchful, for once I won't get stuffy when they whip out their digitals. I an so glad that my aunt will meet my great grandaughter. I don't have a daughter so I envy you. Sounds as though we will all have a good time in our different ways.

Christmas Day with family, Boxing day & over New Year working.

Apron, I've never tried Metatone - I'm not one for spirits anyway, I think the one I can drink easiest is probably Sambuca. But the whiskey is more of a Christmas thing. :-P
