Is anyone else like me. Women seem to have the vast burden of Christmas and everyone else in the family seems to think it “just happens”.
It’s the gift decisions, what to buy for whom.
The wrapping paper, scissors, cello tape
Buying and sending Christmas cards
Wrapping the gifts,
Making sure they get to everyone before Christmas ie overseas or other end of the country.
Planning Christmas dinner - who likes what. ( In my family everyone likes different things. )
Shopping for food, Christmas crackers etc.
Cooking food in the day. As I’m not a good cook, it overwhelms me to be honest!
Making the Christmas table look nice - candles, table runner etc.
Getting drinks for everyone.
On Christmas Eve I usually get a shout - where’s the wrapping paper, gift bags, cellotape?
Just expecting it to be there.
I’m just tired, frazzled, under appreciated and much as I love my family, I think they just don’t appreciate the work and time involved. Just a hug to say thanks mum, would be so nice. ☹️
