My tree won't be up for weeks yet; my decorations remain in the loft; I still have presents to buy.
Yet.......yet.......I'm glad to be in December.
This has got to go down as one of the most miserable and gloomy years in memory. I shall be well pleased to see it over.
And over on FB people are moaning about xmas; and pish and tosh-ing all over. And yet.........this is the darkest time of the year; and leading to the solstice, where the light will shift. The year will turn. I like the lights we switch on, to lighten the darkness. Until my tree is up, I'll settle for lighting candles.
