Downs. The miserable weather,  really want to get out and about with the camera,  the light is awful for taking photographs.  

Ups. Regards to the television,  looking forward to watching the BBC wildlife programme on 29th Dec about the lynx with Gordon Buchanan,  not watched anything exciting up to now. 

Keeping in touch with friends through whatever media. 

Time off work. And the thought that the nights are starting to draw out and it will soon be my favourite time of the year.  Spring.

Ups.... Christmas Soul Source, switching on hundreds of fairy lights, time off work, family, friends, having my two children back from university, warm mulled wine, Marks and Spencer Christmas scented candles, Father Christmas coming down the chimney and leaving the latest Soul Togetherness CD under the tree (how does he do that?), Virtual Christmas fireplace courtesy of You Tube on the TV (yes, I could put my real one on but I'm scared of Greta).

Downs..... chocolate, not having a special someone to share Christmas and warm mulled wine with.  Think I'll ask Father Christmas to hang around next year, he seems to have good taste in music 🙄🎅.

Ups  - Time off work / Eating and drinking what I like even if I’m not hungry / Watching classic films I’ve seen many times before / Getting thrashed playing ‘Game of Life’ by my 11 year old daughter (Tabitha) / Spending time with family.

Downs -The general choice on the telly (Thank the lord for Amazon & Netflix) / Christmas always a hard time for lots of people ref missing anyone not around anymore (You have your moments) / Spending a fortune on batteries for various lighty up things / As you get older you get less and less presents :huh:

Not sure if an Up or a Down - Although by this time we're shattered, not getting to bed until 3.00am Christmas eve so as to be able to sneak in to the kids rooms to get their stockings to fill with presents, even though every time I mention Father Christmas my 14 year old Son (Bailey) rolls his eyes, and Tabitha says…….”Dad, I’m Eleven ya know”…....

Len :thumbsup:

I'm with you on the last "downer", people who can't be nice.  People are like gardens, some grow trees, some grow flowers, some grow weeds, and some don't grow anything.  Maybe put some phostrogen in their Christmas pudding next year.
