Cheer Up Sleepy Jean

December and Christmas time, Christmas time and December! It's officially one whole week exactly until Christmas day and if you're not feeling festive yet, what the hell are you waiting for? Grab a mince pie, dust off your Wham CD and get guzzling down that mulled wine, just kidding- Please drink responsibly. As Andy Williams once said "it's the most wonderful time of the year"... Sort of?*George Michael screeches to a holt*... Ok sure, but come on, is it REALLY wonderful? How wonderful? like 100%? Or more like 60/40 split? Oh FYI, I probably should have started this blog post with a disclaimer- May contain traces of Grinch.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Christmas as a whole but as I grow older and therefore more cynical, I become increasingly aware that they it's just such bloody hard work (albeit wonderful at the same time, obviously). Don't agree with me? Well then you've never lived in a city centre over the festive period. Stress levels are high, people are EVERYWHERE and ruthless and you can be sure to add a seasonal half an hour on to every journey ever, even if it's just walking round the corner to your Tesco Express for a pint of milk and selection box of chocolate for one, to eat in one sitting. It's exhausting! Life is tough and festive cheer runs low, very fast. Even this year I feel like I've sort of escaped the hustle and bustle of city life and yet you're still sucked into the stress of Christmas planning, there simply is NO ESCAPE. Ok sorry, I maybe starting to make one of the most lovely times of year sound like a horror film. 
The point I'm getting at is December is most definitely devoted to Christmas and quite rightly so but sometimes you need to remove yourself from the stress of it all and have a little cosy safe heaven away from highly flammable, garish festive jumpers and over priced lukewarm spiced wine. December for me is all about snuggling up, spending 70% of your time in PJs and hiding away with a pile of Christmas films (I can't stress it enough I genuinely DO like christmas, I'm not the Grinch) and my said selection box for one (but come January I do have a belly not too dissimilar from his) debatably two, if you know, you're feeling generous...
My room over the past few months has been a sorry state of affairs, boxes upon boxes of "stuff" and not a single place to put any of it. I've only just sorted it all out fully and just in the St Nick of time too (see what I did there? Cute huh? See! Totally love Christmas). I am now fully prepared for being completely unsocial and 100% lazy and curling up in my little heaven. I figured as I've never really given you the guided tour of my very teeny little world, now would be a great time... Make yourself at home, but bring your own selection box please...
