I’m not taking down my Christmas tree until the end of the month
The holidays are really over. My mum left this morning to head back home to Nigeria so, I am heading back to Buckingham today. I enjoyed my Christmas holidays. It was really drama-free and I was so glad about that. It was nice to hang out with family and there was a lot of laughter this holiday which was awesome.
However, I cannot wait to be home by myself again. It is nothing personal but I really enjoy my own space. I am a loner of some sorts. I like having people around every now and again but I really value my privacy a whole lot so, it is nice to be going back.
I am also going to take up a lot of shifts with my temp agency because I really need to save up some money. This Buhari-nomics has not been kind to us Nigerians and even though I’m here in the UK, it has affected us a whole lot. So, I really need the money.
Anyway, I know that a lot of people have started to take down their Christmas decorations but I have decided not to do that until the end of the month. Lol. Call it tacky or whatever, I am still not taking it down yet and I’ll tell you why.
This was my first flat and after the accident in November, I was just so grateful to God that I got off with a minor injury and so, I wanted to really enjoy my Christmas. So, I bought a Christmas tree, some tree decorations and lights to make the flat look Christmassy. I really just wanted it to reek of cheer. Lol. However, I did not get to enjoy it enough because I had to come to London for the holidays. So, I still really want to enjoy this moment because my contract will run out soon and I will be moving out and I really don’t know the next time I will have a place to myself to be able to do this.
So, even though I know that it is a bit much leaving Christmas decorations up that long, I want to enjoy them a little while longer and I think that is okay. Right? Let me know what you think.
