Bless you Love.

I can't even book a holiday due to work.

There are parts I do like, but I can cook a storm anytime

I actually enjoy Christmas eve and Christmas day, it's what comes after that really grinds my gears.

The days between Boxing Day and New Year seem to endlessly drag on. It's like some sort of twilight zone of endless bank holiday Mondays - only you have to visit relatives you see once a year who force feed you mince pies and you end up with constpation and heatburn.

If I had got my shit together earlier in the year I would have made sure that I was working apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

I agree about how you are marked as a figure of pity if there's any suggestion of being by yourself on Christmas Day and it's quite hard to not get drawn into that. I capitulated and I am joining a friend and her family for lunch but really what am I doing there except not being on my own ! I considered lying but felt bad in case my DC ( who will be with XH) found out because they would then feel bad

Fortunately next year they will be with me and I won't have to think about this
