AIBU to wish it was Christmas now?!

I am SO not brave enough to actually post this in aibu but I really do wish it was... I mean at least late September! The cold crispness of everything, the fleecy pajamas and bed covers, not listening to half the street chattering because we need the window open angry

I want to be thinking of presents, and Christmas food, and WRAPPING - and Christmas songs, and winter walks, and dark nights, and darker mornings, and pajama days <sigh>

I vow to have a real roaring fire this time by 2016! (not this time....Christmas time obvs)

Anybody else??

Well it does sound lovely but I quite like the nice warm weather and blue skies and sunshine. Will be nice to not have to faff around with bloody God-awful fake tan for my snowy white legs though.

We've got the summer holidays to enjoy, our family holiday and then come September when the kids go back to school, my thoughts will definitely turn to the season of goodwill. grin

It's about 8 weeks until I can mention Christmas at home without getting dirty looks....

I'm done with the summer!

SideOrderofChips Tue 21-Jul-15 21:46:33

I've been yearning for autumn/winter too!

Leaf kicking, wellie boots, hats and scarfs, twinkly lights, hot chocolates and lazy, cosy days snuggled up inside!

I'm fed up of being hot and way prefer winter clothes. I've also started my Christmas shopping grin

It's rarely cold and crisp though.
Wet and mild usually

SideOrderofChips Tue 21-Jul-15 22:05:41

I dont care really whether its wet and mild.

Its too fecking hot and muggy right now, i hate summer clothes, i hate summer with a passion. Im hot, sweaty and just want Christmas adverts, Christmas trees and Christmas lights.

Yanbu! Cannot. Wait.

Ekkwhine Tue 21-Jul-15 22:13:53

Me too!

My Christmas was, how do I word this and not sound awful/ungrateful? An unfestive but thankful day?

Basically, Christmas Day I was 3 days post emergency c-section. I discharged myself Christmas Eve so that I was at home with my dc, I was in pain, exhausted, my milk came in that morning and in terms of the Christmas I had planned in my head with the Christmas Eve rituals and the morning presents, lunch etc it wasn't how I imagined.

Of course I was incredibly grateful for the check up that I deemed unnecessary and almost skipped in order to do some last minute shopping. For the fabulous NHS staff that not only were working that weekend but the one that had actually finished her shift but stayed throughout theatre etc with me and of course the fact that the skilled surgeons had my (slightly prem) baby out in under 15 minutes from the problem being detected.

I've spent the last few months in a turmoil, wishing it was Christmas again but at the same time trying to hold off DD's first birthday lol

wow I think you deserve a fabulous celebration this Christmas Ekkwhine! l love Christmas, always hard financially (the whole season - big fuel bills and tax bill) but somehow the boys get what they want and we eat well. every year I worry and every year its fine. must stop worrying!!

LokiBear Wed 22-Jul-15 08:46:55

I'm looking forward to late October. That is when I really start ramping up my planning. After DD's birthday next week I shall empty my present cupboard and turn my attention to hoarding for Christmas. I can't wish the summer away though - I'm a teacher and I've got so, so much work to do before the end of the holidays!

My favourite months are November to February. I love the run up to Christmas as much as christmas itself. The dark evenings and the crisp winter mornings.

mrschatty Wed 22-Jul-15 14:42:17

eekwhine you deserve a wonderful Christmas this year

heyheyheygoodbye Wed 22-Jul-15 14:47:20

YANBU in the slightest! I fucking hate Summer. It's so boring. I hate sunshine. I hate the clothes. I hate everyone wanting me to go outside! Give me fireplaces, twinkly lights, cosy blankets and twiggy shit! Curling up with my cats and a hot chocolate and admiring my wintry decor...and wearing scarves and massive jumpers and boots...baking and eating delicious warming food...stuff all this ice-cream and Pimms crap grin

TheImprobableGirl Wed 22-Jul-15 19:39:00

And lots of candles that don't get blown out my the stupid wind! And snuggly throws, mulled wine and cider, cinnamon bread. <looks morosely at the sunshine at 7pm...>

SideOrderofChips Wed 22-Jul-15 20:00:04

Oh yes! Lovely dark, cold evenings...

MsAdorabelleDearheartVonLipwig Wed 22-Jul-15 23:12:59

Lighting the wood burner.

Aaaaaahhhh. smile

Ekkwhine Wed 22-Jul-15 23:23:56

I've just moved house too, and for the first time in my own home I have a mantelpiece. I am ridiculously excited to decorate this!!

Rowboat Thu 23-Jul-15 08:33:10

in my next house I will definitely need a mantlepiece!
After dd's birthday next week, I am free to think of Christmas. Have already had our summer holidays, so I can do it guilt free. Autumn is my favourite time of year when it starts to get colder and I can fill the kitchen with Christmas smells. smile

I am soo looking forward to it this year.

Summer is just not happening here - not really warm, lots of rain, and we're all working too hard (none of which are particularly unusual but it feels worse somehow this year).

So the Christmas season, with all the magic it brings, and the hot chocolate or mulled wine to recover from wind and rain, cosy fires, and fun in between the mayhem, oooooh, I am looking forward to that.

Although, our Christmas baby will turn 10 - 10!!! - on Boxing Day. How the heck did that happen so fast??!!

RatOnnaStick Thu 23-Jul-15 09:00:24

Autumn, yes. Boots and warm jumpers and hot chocolate and all that. Christmas? Not so much. I could live without it personally.

Ekkwhine Thu 23-Jul-15 09:47:03

I've always waited until the last Adc's birthday before thinking of Christmas but given that I now have a 22/12 I don't think I can use that one as an excuse lol

Ooooh the fireplace, it's not real, but one of those flans effect ones. It'll be fine though, I'm thinking jugs of holly etc on the hearth, a bowl of fairy lights, a garland hanging and some small, old fashioned toys on the mantle. grin

Adc's = DC's obviously!
