I’ve turned into a boring old turnip.
And what’s worse.
I can’t be bothered to care.
I actually parked outside a shop yesterday and almost got excited about browsing for Christmas presents.
I even opened the car door, but admit I didn’t get a leg out.
It had a lot to do with shopping for the sake of it.
Of buying a gift for someone just because that’s what I’m supposed to do this time of year.
Or at least that’s what I hope it is rather than just being bored to hell with it all.
Because that would be awful…
So I shut the car door and decided to think more about what I really wanted to get everyone.
I just hope it happens sometime before Christmas Day.
I don’t know what’s happened to me, but I really have to get over it already as I’d much prefer to be a green bean than a turnip.
You know, one of those French ones.
Tall and skinny..
On top of all this I’m struggling with deciding whether to go to England for part of the Christmas holiday.
It sounds good doesn’t it.
Christmas with my family here in Houston, then Christmas with all my other family in England.
Couldn’t ask for more really – if it wasn’t for the fear that I’m going to blow up on the airplane, or die in London…
I’m already afraid of flying without having to worry about the recent terrorism.
So when P asked if I’d like to go I said no.
Then I said yes.
Then I said no again.
This went on for about a month, but yesterday, as I tried to get my foot out of the car, I said yes again knowing that it was my final answer.
In that sad resigned voice one has when you know nothing good can come from it.
(Did I mention I’m a drama queen?…)
It was a struggle I can tell you.
Apart from the fact that I would see my family and that is always a good thing, here are the pros and cons.
I get to be with the Fam.
So you can see that I’ve had a bit of a hard time of it lately.
Anyway, turns out the David Hockney exhibit isn’t the one I want to see – I wanted to see the landscapes, not the portraits, but hopefully I’ll still go up into London to see something.
So that’s it really.
No real news except that Cornelius has come across a new plant.
The Spindle Back Warvil.
I’m glad that one of us has still got it together enough to do some work…
