Christmas 

I think yet again I won't manage to send Christmas cards this year. Yesterday I managed to actually buy a box and I thought I'd have a few hours' downtime to write them, but I didn't get much time alone in the end and when I did, I realised my address list was incomplete/out of date.

Every year I try to do it and every year I just never seem to get any cards written before the last posting date. I wish I hadn't optimistically bought that box yesterday now!

I'm sure at any other time of year I could get a bunch of cards written and posted, but then at any other time of year, I wouldn't need to allow six days for first-class post.

Christmas just seems to be a time of TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH A SHITLOAD OF THINGS banging up against YOU CAN'T DO THE THINGS BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS CLOSED and/or EVERYBODY ELSE IS TRYING TO DO THE SAME THINGS AT THE SAME TIME.

Hey, I managed to get three whole cards written and posted this morning!

I've now managed to post seven cards. That's all I can manage. I am just so bloody SLOW at writing them, just like I'm slow at wrapping presents, buying presents...every Christmas-related thing.

Every year I think that next year I'll somehow magically become a "real woman" who has amazing coordination and spatial skills and can put up decorations, write cards etc without doing it all painfully slowly and quite badly.

Every year what really happens is that I leave this stuff too late because I resent Christmas encroaching into November, then I either don't get it done or I do it really badly. Sigh. Maybe just time to accept this?
