How to avoid going Christmas Crackers - Daily tips for staying sane in the run up to Christmas.
Tip No. 6
One Christmas, heavily pregnant and exhausted, I was cheered by the thought of the gift I believed I was getting from my husband. I had seen a large box he had hidden and was excited and thrilled at the thought that he was giving me a computer. That Christmas morning he was filming us (he got a camera!) and focussed in on me as I opened my present. As I open the gift a silence descended. I looked at the camera, my eyes filled with tears.
'You got me a ... microwave?'
The home video shows the camera shaking.
When things get tense and you think 'one day I'll laugh about this', don't wait - start now!
