🎄My top 5 reasons why Christmas SUCKS🎄

There are countless reasons why Christmas is great, so I thought it would be fun to share why I think it sucks. 🤩

5. I GET TIPSY ON BAILEYS…EVERY MORNING!

I barely drink alcohol, as I’d rather have a tea or water, even socially. But when it’s the festive season, we buy a bottle of Baileys, and find myself feeling very merry in the mornings, after downing my Baileys coffee ☕️

4. MY BANK ACCOUNT GETS SPANKED

As an artist & boxing coach, money from those incomes stop for a few weeks during the Christmas period, yet I’m spending so much 💰 on 🎁 and what not. And when I do start working again, I feel I’m earning just to save up for Holly’s birthday in February. 🤯

3. MY FACE AND BELLY GET ROUNDER

Teaching boxing is quite active so I keep myself in relatively good shape. As the champs and I take a well deserved break, the combination of over-eating, along with a lack of working out, means I carry a few extra kilos that I need to sweat off.

2. WATCHING THE SAME MOVIES OVER AND OVER…AND OVER

Home Alone 1 & 2, Elf and Love Actually are classics, but when they’re shown on TV every other day, gets a bit much for my mental 🍿🎬

1. THE CHRISTMAS TREE FIASCO

Every year I detest putting up the Christmas tree. Even getting the tree into the house is a horrid experience, as we keep the tree in an outdoor cupboard that’s filled with spiders. My imagination goes wild thinking I’m gonna get strangled by the webs, then chewed on by the spiders.

Saying that, I have managed to not help the last couple of years, with the compromise being that I keep Holly company by watching a festive movie while she decorates the tree.
