merry Christmas from Baggage Reclaim

I just wanted to stop by and wish you all a very merry Christmas / happy Holidays! I’m going to chill out for a few days with my family and try to get some much needed rest.

Thank you all for continuing to be a part of my journey and for allowing me to be a part of yours. I am very blessed. Whoever you’re with tomorrow, try and have a great day and spend it with people with whom you share mutual care, trust, respect and even love. Although don’t forget that it’s just one day and that it’s just December, although it does create a huge amount of pressure so just exhale, embrace, enjoy and try not to get too bogged down with how you thought things would or ‘should’ be.

Love and big squeezey hugs, Nat xxxx

PS Don’t send that text. Or that Facebook message. Or leave that drunk voicemail. Or turn up in a fur coat and no knickers!

    In the midst of all this grief many of your comments made me spontaneously laugh out loud which was a great reminder that life goes on and I’m going to be ok. Priceless! Much love and huge hugs to you too Rev, xxx.

      Lilly, your comment brought tears to my eyes. What a compliment. I’m so glad (and humbled) that I had a small part in making your grief lighter. And you’re right, honey. It does go on. That’s the beauty of life. :)

    Thanks Revvie. Hugs bk!! Can you please drop me down some perfume lovie? Gettin a bit stinkie down here! lol Merry Xmas too, to all the WONDERFUL ladies, chickie babes, builder wimmins, academic rockers, dancin mumma’s, single lasses, & gorgeous gals of ALL persuasions on BR who have shown me such great kindness in my time at BR. You all ROCK. I’m still not at all myself & stuck in this sh*tty hole, the days are bleak, very, very bleak, & apart from proffessional support I’ve become a total recluse (while there’s still a roof over my head to hide under!) If the best I can do right now, is stick close to my Dr, get extra medical help, register for (choke, splutter) welfare, & don’t do any nuts (which I never have but boy is it tempting) that will have to do. This is my WORST xmas ever. However, seeing others grow & get stronger here on BR is giving me hope. Luv to all. x

      Teach! You’re here!! Yay! Of course, honey, I’ll drop some Chanel No. 5 or Poison (lol) or whatever else kind of perfume you like, love. Just say the word, m’dear. Honey, I know you’re going through a “dark night of the soul” kind of thing right now. There’s nothing I can say, but only that I’m SO GLAD you commented and are keeping us informed. I was thinking about you, and I know I’m not alone. And good on you for asking for help.

    Dancingqueen, lmao!! Yep. “Dork” pretty much sums it up with that one. Oh… And come to find out via a girlfriend of mine… She realized that me, and her other girlfriend… Were talking about the same guy to her! This other girl has been dating him for 2 months, I was dating him for a month. He did not fit the the player profile, in his 40′s, school teacher, devoted father of 3. Unbelievable. All the while telling me he “doesn’t believe in dating more than one at a time, and wanted to be exclusive w me” when he was w someone else. So, my girl told the other girl, lmao!

    I have BR to thank… I used my head, while still having fun, and paid attention on how he treated me, what he was like, etc… Never once did I worry if he liked me. I noticed some red flags… And hightailed it outta there, no disappointments. I felt empowered. Because I didn’t do anything I didn’t want to, and I’ve held up my standards completely, with others I’ve recently dated as well. Feels awesome. If only I felt this secure with myself years ago!

    And just like that little jerk who kinda insulted you in your car cause u wouldn’t give it up, being called “June Cleaver” was my insult. Can’t believe these men. They don’t get what they want so they have to make little digs.

    BR strong!
