I believe in you. It will get easier. Been where you are. After Day 7, it’s easier to breathe, and you itch a lot less. I have faith in you. When the holidays come, just be mindful, and proud of the fact you are working a program. Though we’ve never met, nor are we likely to but know this. I AM PROUD OF YOU.

24th December:
Before leaving for work, a small bronze turkey goes in the oven. Cooking it low and slow.
Get home from work about 5pm (getting out early this year), check it's done before letting it rest. Take the dogs for a walk.
6pm Stock up the feed for donkeys, ponies, goats, Chickens and ducks.
7pm Order a take-away (Chinese) & feed the dogs their turkey (Not to much, it's got to be balanced with their usual feed otherwise things get messy).
Eat dinner once it's arrived and chill out by the fire with a Parisian style hot chocolate and a film.
11pm Norfolk Black Turkey goes in the oven and I go off to bed.
25th December:
6am Christmas morning starts with Kippers, scrambled eggs and toast before a nice long dog walk.
9am Give the wife her present before calling me mam.
10am Go into the kitchen to make a start on the full Irish Christmas dinner.
3pm Dinner is served, followed by pudding, followed by a glass of Amarula on ice plonked down on the sofa with the wife & dogs (A bit of luck, the yule log should still be burning).
7pm Put my soda bread rolls in the oven and take the dogs for another walk, before sharing some cold meat, stuffing & bread sauce inside some nice warm rolls.
Then it's just spending time relaxing with the wife. Who knows? maybe another film or some nostalgic TV show, maybe even just chatting all night.

Might not seem like a big deal, but to look at my family and tell them I fell for an amazing girl without the fear of being kicked out or hated.

I would like to go to bed and rise in the morning not worrying about the future of all the species of this earth, including all our innocent children.

Many food pantries, churches, schools, and community agencies have toys for struggling families with children. Please try them... that's why such programs exist. Did your parents face their own lean years when starting out? If so, they may have deeper understanding of your struggle. I hope you find a way through this and the commercialization of this season does not weigh you down.

I'm so very sorry you're going through a rough time. I truly hope you can find help if you haven't already. Take it one day at a time. Take it 1 minute or hour at a time if you have to. Just remember that above anything else, love yourself first and foremost. Things do get better but unfortunately it takes time. The hardest part is over though since you started to work on not having those thoughts. You can do it! And if you have a hard day, you can call the national suicide hotline or something similar for where you live, I hope.

This probably won’t mean anything to many of you Panda addicts but to me this was what made it Christmas. Mathers Black Beer, 8% abv which was meant to be diluted with lemonade, hot milk or added to a tot of whiskey. We only bought it at Christmas and we could have the first of many glasses of black beer and lemonade (a Sheffield Stout) during the evening on Christmas Eve.

Mathers was killed off by the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer when he re-classified it as an alcoholic beverage, not a mixer so VAT was payable. This made it unprofitable to produce (made in Huddersfield) as a batch was only made once a year. Captain Cook took a supply of black beer on his voyages and set up a processing plant on New Zealand so that his crew would have a source of vitamin c to keep them healthy. During WWII Winston Churchill understood the value and use of black beer especially for miners and insisted that it was not rationed.

There is nothing that can recapture the taste and memories of good Christmas times than Mathers Black Beer. And the owners won’t sell the recipe - I’ve tried.
