The tree is up, the Christmas songs are on. I've elfed myself and my family. The Christmas presents are all bought, the Christmas cards have been sent out. The Advent calendars are more than halfway finished. The decorations are up, the Christmas books are being read before bedtime.
And yet, I still don't feel it.
Even watching the X Factor finals this weekend didn't make me feel like Christmas is getting nearer. Yesterday, I put on my most Christmasy jumper - a cream jumper with a green snowflake bought from Gap years ago. I even tried baking yesterday. I pulled out my recipe for waffles and plan on making them sometime soon. What else can I do?
Maybe when N is off work from this Friday. Maybe when we finally take the boys to see Father Christmas. Maybe when the in-laws arrive. Maybe when we see The Room on the Broom next week. Maybe when we head off to our first toddler Christmas party. Maybe. I hope.
