Well...Christmas will soon is upon us...... I have a house full of people (5/6 Christmas Eve, Christmas Day...increasing to 8/9 Boxing Day and the 27th December).
I am dreading it as it will mean several days without any personal space, or quiet time or escape from NTs doing their thing. They will enjoy their traditions and I will be ASD serving wench making sure that everyone has a good time, but inside i will be struggling to cope.
This is a shout out...as I am going to need some help to get me through without a tantrum, shutdown or meltdown.
Is there anyone else about during the Christmas break who is planning to be online ......it would help a great deal to keep me on an even keel!
Not sure if I can, but it would be great to. There's just 3 of us which makes it more intense and busy with little escape, but if i can get some time out I will. I find it hard and often do what i am told is 'withdrawing' which I suppose is what you mean by shutdown, it can be in the room or I go to my room for a while or do all the kitchen graft. It would be good to have a dog to escape outdoors with it. If it's mild weather, I will find some jobs outdoors for a couple of hours.
Yes I will be around at that time and will be sure to check the website. Hope things don't get too stressful for you :)
thank you..it means alot x
I’ll keep checking in Elie. I’ll be with my family, and they are often all sat on their phones anyway. They probably won’t be on Christmas Day as that will break their rules, but hey, I’ve always been a rule breaker so why stop now ;) I wouldn’t want to disappoint them.
I’m finding that coming on here is really helping me so coming on here over the dreaded period will probably help me as well.
You've got an awful lot of folk to deal with and as they say at Asda or somewhere, every little helps :-) see you on Christmas Eve X
Thank you Blueray.....you anarchist!! Glad being here with us motley lot is helping.
the guest list is not my choice....it is just my OH is a BIG xmas and family fan! - I am fighting the urge to do a runner and hide in someone's shed until the calm returns...
let me know if you have a cupboard under your stairs that you dont mind subletting for a couple of days! - lol
I'm a skinny bint, and fold well...
