Christmas 2020: a matter of perspective

December 25th, 2020 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

I am going to have a fantastic Christmas this year! I know. There is still covid-19 going on, our area moving into tier 4 on Saturday, Brexit, and all sorts of other general unpleasantness, but it is all relative.

For example, two years ago, Christmas 2018, I was in the middle of chemotherapy treatment and still getting most of my nutrition through a tube sticking out of my stomach. In the evening I collapsed in the hallway and had an ambulance ride to hospital, where I stayed on a drip until being allowed home on boxing day. I’m not even sure that counts as my worst Christmas.

This year I am feeling well, and will be spending the day with my favourite person. Just the two of us plus cat and dogs of course. There will probably be a nice long walk with the hounds during the day, so we will be having a happy Christmas and I hope everybody else manages to enjoy themselves as well, in their own ways.
