I always go to one of my DDs for Christmas, and my housemate goes to her sister's.
This year my DDs suggested it was safer if I stayed home but housemate was still going to her sister.
Yippee I thought, home alone, eat what I like, when I like, watch what I like, read - bliss! Oh no, no, no! Housemate decided to stay home too. Music on, no telly, constant chat, Scrabble, charades...... I'm exhausted!
Don't get me wrong, she is a lovely friend and has lived in my house since 1989, so I hadn't the heart to rein her in.
