Christmas Dilemma

OK, here’s a puzzle for anyone who wants to work this one out.

My parents live in Bristol, my partner’s parents live in Stockton – almost opposite ends of the country. I live in Nottingham. How to see all the parents and stay together for Christmas/ Answer is easy, or so it seems. Invite the parents to visit Nottingham. Entertain and feed them well, problem solved.


One set don’t want to make the journey to Nottingham. The other set thinks that we are making too much of being an item and shouldn’t be worrying about being together at Christmas.

So, biting tongues, as we don’t want to fall out with the parents, how do we solve this one? It is too expensive to visit both families together.

Roll on January 1st.

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.

    the togetherness thing
    How about one set for christmas and the other for new years, to be cheaky, if they say “don’t make such a big deal about being an item,” “why make a big deal about meing a parent.” Have em flip a coin and see who wins the toss for christmas and get a good piss-up going for newyears with whoever loses the toss.

    um, oh dear hard one. me and jack never spend christmas together, even though it’d be my dream one day. my mum would have him here, but then there’s his family, grandparents etc, so we see each other at new year. hugs.
