Craving Normality

During one of my Dad’s visits a few years ago I told him “Dad, I love you. I spend weeks looking forward to you coming to stay….and every bloody minute you’re here wishing you’d eff off home again”. That’s pretty much my relationship with Christmas too. I do look forward to it. Then by about 10am on Christmas Day I’m ready for it to be over so I can get back to ‘normal’.

That said, I struggle with getting back into my normal frame of mind. I find the huge upheaval and change of the two day holiday quite unsettling and that feeling stays with me for a good few days.  I find, as I get older, that I want more routine and more order in my life, and while I can adapt to changes I find them challenging. Today I want everything back to how it usually is but can’t shake the feeling that it’s not. I’m anxious and finding it hard to focus (it’s taken me ages to do this blogpost when it would normally take me just half the time).  Maybe it’s a touch of the post-holiday blues…or a sugar crash after all the chocolate and sweet things of the last few days. Hopefully I can shake it off, or dance it off, over New Year.
