Christmas is Coming and Mummy's getting Stressed.

Christmas is Coming and Mummy's getting Stressed.

Christmas is coming and Mummy's (that's Me) is getting stressed. It's not even December yet and I can already feel my stress levels rising and my happiness levels dropping and although I may appear to be completely 'fine' on the outside, I can assure you, I am actually far from it underneath. Every year is the same but this year, I've almost had enough of it all.

For me Christmas is about my children, my family and my closest friends. It's about showing how much we love each other and care. It's not about who can buy the biggest and best presents. Christmas just seems to bring out the worst in some people and I can't stand it.

I am NOT going to try and compete this year. I am better than that. I am NOT going to worry myself if your kids get better presents than my kids, they won't care about that and I am NOT going to care if your present is shinier than mine. I am not materialistic like you!

I won't be getting myself into debt and I won't be spending money I don't have. We all live very different lives and some of us don't have the money or lifestyle that you may have so this year, I am NOT going to pretend that we're the same by buying you gifts I can't afford just so you don't notice. I am NOT ashamed. Some of us live month to month and paying our bills and looking after our children is far more important than splashing out on unnecessary crap at Christmas. It's just one day of the year, after all.

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to be working all the hours I can to earn every pound I can, to give my family the best Christmas that I can afford to give them. I won't say it's' going to be easy and I won't say that it won't be stressful as I know that it will be. There will be sleepless nights and lots of tears but hey, I guess that's just the way it's going to be. 

Christmas is stressful. It is! So if I seem a little stressed this season, please forgive me.

This Mummy is trying her best x
