It’s supposed to look a lot like Christmas

My Mum put up her Christmas tree last night. It is beautiful and totally her, meaning ultra chic. Once it was up, I realized it was the 4th December and not only had I not rung my Grandmother to wish her a happy birthday but it was 21 days until Christmas.

It doesn’t feel like Christmas to me.

Five Christmases in London mean I’m used to it being dark and grey with a light dusting of snow. It means going Christmas shopping on Oxford Street with hats, gloves and scarves. It means real Christmas trees with twinkly lights and red Starbucks cups with Hot Chocolate inside.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not doing a Scrooge here but I just wish I felt a bit more “Christmassy”.

    You got used to having a ‘white christmas’. Haha. The weather lately has been cloudy, though! I’m sure Christmas will be hot as hell, though. Blegh. I swear, one year, I’m going to england for christmas with Shen. Lol. And I have no idea what we’ll do, but i don’t care! I want a white christmas one year.

      The only problem is that it’s not always white, but it is always cold! I was just talking about it with The Husband and he said to me, “Don’t you always moan about it being too cold at this time of year?”

      I swear, the grass is always greener!
