By being very reasonable about this?

Due to weather, we've decided not to go to Yorkshire for a few days to see db.
I am quite cool about it- que sera and all that.
It's not vitally important, we'll get there maybe after Xmas, I am faced with a runup to Christmas with nothing planned- but hey ho.
I can potter, dcs will meet up with friends, I will consume a bit of alcohol.
But dh has called me 3 times so far, asking how I'm feeling, am I ok about cancelling trip, am I keeping busy enough. I think he really expects me to be in floods of tears and gulping down the Prozac.
Actually I'm quite pleased I do not have pack.......

A nice quiet family Xmas, pottering about at home? No relatives and in-laws to entertain/feed/clean up after? Sounds marvellous to me!

YANBU, we have to go to yorkshire on Boxing day to visit mil, kind of hoping the snow is so bad so we can get out of it, really fancy just spending Christmas lounging around the house eating chocolate

I too am meant to be travelling to n.yorkshire on 23rd for a week in a cottage. I am not risking being stuck in ancient Volvo in snow with three kids, a dog and a cat.

bless your dh, he sounds sweet and caring

You take your cat with you? confused

Yes, not normally- I know I sound like complete weirdo- but left it too late to get cattery place and don't have anyone local to feed him. Going to lose a lot of money but past caring now.

I wonder how many folk will use the weather, if not as an excuse, but maybe as an incentive to stay at home and not visit rellies (even ones they quite like)?

and if this is the case, maybe we should all just do our own thing in our own homes every year grin

We're supposed to be going to S Yorkshire on Friday to be with my family for Christmas. I have a spare xmas dinner in the freezer just in case we can't make it.

YANBU. Does your reasonableness rub off on others btw? I could do with some as I'm sitting here in floods of tears because my sister and her partner and DCs are stranded at home in Cornwall and probably wont be coming for christmas now as traffic is so bad and their coach company are cancelling left right and fecking centre sad

No one's died and yet I'm totally devastated. Need to get a grip. Someone slap me.
