Christmas day

Hot here, brutally bright sunshine, warm breeze, not a cloud in the sky.

I am waiting for my family to arrive. I am hosting this year. They will be stupidly early for lunch. That’s how they are.

I can’t cook, but I will do my best. Crispy garlic chicken with hasselback potatoes and a dessert that is essentially pavlova in a glass. The amazing package of goodies I got from my ex will provide the best of the meal: Home made snacks that actually take skill to make.

We will drink champagne and watch people in the park do their family things.

We are lucky. I know this. For all sorts of reasons.

I have organised the to-and-fro for my flight to visit the sunshiney man over New Year. I’m looking forward to it. Unusual for me: I am feeling it as a respite from peopling. It’s a positive and unexpected feeling.

For those who struggle at this time of year, I send you good wishes and hope you have the space and energy to do something sweet for yourself.

Happy Christmas to those who celebrate it *throws glitter*.

  3. Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Great White & Frigid North. Happy to see you and this new sub guy seem to be getting along well. Crossed a small barrier and got my first hug by a topless woman at a play party on NYE myself.

    Mind if I message you over on the other site? I have a bit of a dilemma, you might not have any experience with it; and if it’s not your wheelhouse just tell me. I have a way around it I’m just not sure if it’s the best tactic. It both is and isn’t related to kink, which is the crux of the issue actually.
