Monday 1 December 1986

…All today at school we put up Christmas decorations.
We were given a wall to cover in anything we liked…

I also made a point of “burning my advent candle down to number 2”, and drew a festive illustration in my diary proclaiming 23 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS. By which, given I wrote the entry last thing before going to bed, I meant that as of tomorrow there would be 23 days till Christmas.

I wasn’t getting excited. Oh no.

  1. I always remember getting over hyped up on christmas. Marking with big Xs in the catalouges what I wanted as presents, seeing the toy commercials on TV and counting down every second til the big day arrived. Plus my birthday on the 8th got in the way!
