Walking in a Winter Wonderland


It snowed this week!

The ipod is loaded down with christmas tunes (see below).

Just switched the last of the christmas lights on.

Picking up the locally-reared, free range, Norfolk Bronze first thing in the morning.

Family due in the afternoon.

Last of the wrapping to do tonight.

Kids are bursting with excitment.

Tins of Quality Street await enticingly.

A plethora of wine, spirits and (alcohol-free) beer stand ready.

AND...Christmas day will be two calender months of no drugs... Hohoho...

So, to celebrate: my top 5 christmas pop songs...

5) Merry Xmas Everyone - Slade - it is officially not allowed to be Christmas in the UK unless this song is heard by every member of the population at least once a day...
4) Santa Baby - Eartha Kitt
3) Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses (couldn't find original video of this one)
2) Fairytale of New York - Pogues (featuring Kirsty MacColl)
1) Christmas (Baby please come home) - Darlene Love - meloncholy beneath I know, but, crikey, phil spector knew how to Christmasify a pop tune. Wigs an' all...

Happy Holidays! Thanks for the feedback and advice, I'm really happy for you! You're right in that this disease is so individual, and you've gotta try what you can, because yes, what do you have to lose? I really appreciate it and will look into it -- every little bit helps and the mind-body connection is a powerful tool. Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2010!

This was such a delightful post to read! Feeled with merriment and good news! Happy to read it!

Oops, I meant to say filled, not feeled. Goodness, if my high school English teacher could read the things I write online she would faint straight away!

And a Happy New Year to you all. I am glad to have read that, all in all, you have had a merry and enjoyable festive season. Try as it might, there are some things that UC just cannot ruin. Still, Christmas has come and gone in a flash, so here's to making next year the year we all beat the UC, through whatever means necessary... Bring on 2010!
