MY STORY CHRISTMAS HELL NEED TO SHARE PART 2

Well not long to go before the night mare is over.

Call me Scrooge just woken up to the Radio playing Little Donkey on the playlist.

Please no thanks gets to me.

Why is it necessary for every one to think this time of year is a fun, jolly time.

Out yesterday garden hanging out my smalls as a gentleman does.

To be met by the neighbour next door. Complaining about my music.

Good god only playing the best music ever. 

Got new CD player have problems adjusting sound is too loud.

Me deaf not good is it, where's the community spirit, then I thought more likely in her.

Whiff of mints always talking to her.

Asked me what you favourite Christmas Carol thought for a moments. Thought you playing those.

Like a flash oh seeing her lives down the street the only Cracker probably pull this year.

The annoying thing is this time every one wants to be your friend yet most of the year.

Blank, do not talk or make some avoidance and be a moaner.

Always a concern as have been victim of mate crime.

Why seem to want to insist must invite your for Christmas Lunch or is it me.

Any one else like this right now.

I wish I had money again, buy an island.

All those wished to avoid C word day come and stay.

Met this lad this interesting business. Runs non Christmas Hotels used to do and go.

No decorations, or food or anything .

Just a room and your meals.  The rooms all have satellite TV and if you wanted to watch TV C word any of it.

Can do in private.

Had went to one in the Lakes, cost me a bomb.

Only problems were this sad, lonely depressed men who had no life.

Me an entertainer a gent has stories, tales fun times.

All boring men. No interest hobbies.

Imagine that scene from Father Ted when that priest arrives that is silent quiet.   Does not want to engage . Now imagine a room full of them, help.

I think only escape was going out walking and to find solace else where.

Here hopeful survive.

Know save a lot of electric watching TV  Nothing on stimulating.

Why so much dross.

Oh well plenty of household duties.  My Marigolds await

Good sweep does the stress levels wonder  shaking my funky stuff .

    Thank you for sharing this with us @thespiceman. We appreciate that this time of year can be difficult for some people and that it can feel like a lot of pressure to be in the festive spirit. 

    Please take the time to do whatever you want to, whether that is to do with Christmas or not. Having space to just be us is always important, especially at this time of year.

    I had a Father Ted experience myself last week, got lost in a department store and ended up in the lingerie section...of course that's where I was spotted by someone I knew! :D

    Hello @Cressida   Good glad make you smile, then the other extreme.

    Mother decided to book a holiday over priced, expensive hotel.

    Whose staff decided every minute of every second every hour to do party games horrible, imagine meal times.

    All I ever did was hide in my hotel room watching TV.

    The door locked and me just literally stuck in  this dreadful hotel.

    Scars run deep, keeping me sane is my music.

    Northern soul on right now.
