The countdown to Christmas is on! I do usually love the festivities – mulled wine, mince pies, decorating the tree and watching Christmas films.
But these past few weeks or so, I’ve felt a bit down in the dumps.
I’m trying to be positive and just get on with things, but life keeps throwing me curve balls. Quite frankly, it’s a really challenging time, not just for me, but for a lot of people this time of year.
I think for a lot of people who struggle with infertility, and maybe, some of you can relate, but December is not a good month when you have been trying to have a little family for years. Also, those who struggle with excessive weight gain too – the last thing you want to do, is be seen out and about, so you become a bit of a hermit.
And then, of course there is the cost of living crisis. So many people struggling at the moment and its truly heart breaking. I really do feel for those that are losing their homes, losing their jobs and can’t afford food or have the heating on.
I have also avoided looking at my phone for the past few weeks – you may have noticed. In some ways it’s been good for me, in other ways it’s been bad. I feel disconnected. But I’m enjoying focusing on the World Cup, tv series such as The Crown and The Kardashians, work-loads, birthdays and events, instead of being glued to my phone.
ANYWAY, don’t mind me, having a little heart to heart… I have put together The Ultimate Watch List. I’ve split these up into sections, let me know if you spot any of your faves!
