Bah Humbug Indeed

Morning folks....Christmas has come and gone and it was lovely to share the grandkiddies excitement of opening the pressies that Santa left at Grandma's.....yes all the expected diners managed to get here despite the weather and I am now surviving on the left overs but I am left feeling like Mrs Misery and probably just like you am wondering what all the fuss was about...weeks of running around like a headless chicken = 2 days of stuffing our faces silly...the result...one not so happy Bank Manager....could this be the start of the Grumpy Old Woman stage of my life.   The real reason for the doom and gloom I suspect is a recent invitation to join the "Feeling Sorry For Myself" Club....wasn't aware that I accepted but it would appear that like it or not I am now a fully fledged member and have been awarded an aching head...sore neck...racking cough and what did I do to qualify for the gold membership benefits of sore eyes and aching teeth....yes the one present you don't want to get in your stocking....the Christmas Virus has arrived in the cubbyhole.  Not thinking for one minute that I am alone and that this is the most exclusive club in the world so to all my fellow sufferers including my lovely buddy Anne....I am toasting you all with hot lemony drinks spiced up with painkillers while snuggling my hot water bottle until we can figure out how to unsubscribe.
Hasn't the TV been rubbish over Christmas but I did find one little gem which could become my new snuggle up on the sofa addiction...Upstairs Downstairs is back....oh how I loved the old version of this classic with Hudson and Rose but this latest version could turn out to be a whole lot spicier and just when you think it can't get any better...Dancing on Ice will be back on our screens on 9th January.....can't wait to see who the gorgeous Dan The Man is partnered with this time round.
Can you tell I am feeling chirpier already....could this be enough to blow away the Christmas doom and gloom cobwebs....

yes folks.....the chocolate Cubbyhole Stash mountain just got a whole lot bigger and on the weather front we seem to be getting a bit of a thaw....so it's not all bad news at the cubbyhole.  Take care and stay warm my friends...I am off to boil the kettle for yet another "feel sorry for myself" hot drink

  13. Sorry to hear you are feeling poorly, hope you recover soon!

    Can't wait for Dancing on Ice to start, although looking at the website there are a few changes in the professional skaters (but Dan the man is still there) and not many of the "celebs" who I actually recognise!!

  16. Hi Kath, sorry to here your feeling under the weather. I think loads have been this time. I have had a bad neck and shoulder since I finished work, then my daughter came home and she's been ill all Christmas with us. I don't think I have had one visiter that was completely well. Keep warm and hope you get well soon. I'm off to dose up on painkillers again. Hugs x ChrisB

  18. Sorry Kath, you are not feeling too well. But like you I wonder what all the comercial fuss is about the reason for the season is good, but the running around is really a pain. Still trying to get over it.
    I wish you and Buddy and the rest of your family all best wishes for 2011.

  20. Oh I do hope you feel better soon Kath, I really do have to say I enjoyed Upstairs Downstairs as much as the old ones. Can't wait for tonights. And yes dancing on ice coming up, so looking forward to that too. Although the hubby hates all these celebrity shows.
    Take care, stay warm
    Happy crafting

  21. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well Kath. Hope you get better soon.

    Like the look of your chocolate stash. No-one gave me any choccies. Probably cos we were all at Catriona's and we were the ones taking the goodies.

    I've got loads of stuff recorded that I'm working my way through so I've only managed to see one episode of Upstairs, Downstairs but I really enjoyed it.

    Keep warm and get better soon,

    Kat xx

  25. Oh I love the old Upstairs Downstairs. My hubby suggested we get it on Netflix. I loved it. I will be looking for the new one.
    Your post is why Chirstmas is not my favorite. So much build up and so much let down. I did much better this year. I think I didn't have the TV on as much so I didn't get all the build up. We did have a very nice Christmas. All in good health. That is something to be very thankful for. I hope you are feeling better soon.
