Broken Promises [Dec. 2nd, 2007|10:30 am]
Tony Grist
We got up really early yesterday morning because we understood we had workmen coming. Of course they didn't show . Eventually their supervisor or whoever he was rang up and apologised and said the van had broken down. I don't believe him but, hey,there's always an up-side; I got to see the the sunrise and that's a real rarity. I though of taking its picture but it was thin and watery so I didn't bother.

Carl said he would let us have a printed invitation to his son-in-law's birthday party; he's been saying it for months. Of course he never did. Ailz is upset and annoyed but I'm innured to people not doing what they promise and pleased to have been handed an excuse for not going. Nothing personal; I just hate parties.

I said I would put up the Christmas tree yesterday. Of course I didn't.  Maybe today. My attitude towards Christmas varies from year to year. Some years I've hated it. Last year, what with Joe living here, I put myself out and got into the festive spirit. This year I couldn't care less. Christmas is this big fuss going on somewhere in the middle distance involving the makers of luxury goods, advertisers, shopkeepers, the parents of young children and a few religious people- I don't fall into any of those categories so it's nothing to do with me.

Bah humbug! I know you had a bad day. The challenge is to live up to Greg Lake's pronouncement

"Hallelujah, Noel, be it heaven or hell
The Christmas you get you deserve!"

I am aiming to concentrate on the things that matter. Seeing friends and relations, settling down with a good book, moody walks along the beach with BIL's dog, a glass of wine and maybe a visit to a stone circle or two. Hope you have a chance to plan in some nice things that matter to you.

We're going to spend Christmas Day itself with my mother and sister- something I'm looking forward to.

It's the build-up I can't get excited about.

Visits to stone circles- that sounds good.
