Mum on drinking binge from 5am Christmas Day ‘proud’ that she missed lunch

A mum-of-one got so drunk on Christmas morning that she ended up missing dinner – but she's proud of herself.

Emily Anderson, from Nottingham, claims she normally never drinks until the festive season – and this year she started her binge at 5am.

But the mum, who has been branded 'sad' for her antics, was so drunk by 9.30 in the morning that she ended up missing her Christmas dinner.

Telling her story to Fabulous magazine, she said: "My head is pounding and I desperately need more sleep – but I’m not sick. Instead, I have the mother of all hangovers.

"I’m suffering from what I’ve termed ‘Boxing Day despair’. It’s all my own fault… but I’m proud.

"It started yesterday morning at 5am when I cracked open the Bucks Fizz. By 9.30 am I was drunk and missed Christmas dinner – people said it was ‘sad’ but I didn’t care.

"I work all year, planning events from parties to hen dos and stags for other people. It means I never normally get the chance to drink."

The hospitality worker claims the festive season is her only chance to 'cut loose' because she leaves the festive planning to her mum.

She added that 'being drunk by 9am is a treat' as she enjoys her ‘Bucks Fizz buzz’, to get through the day without arguments.

But she has been slammed by others for her decision as they question her responsibility as a parent.

Another added: "Nothing to be proud of, and to say only drinks once a year! Yeah right, that is not the action of someone who drinks once a year."

A third said: "Whether there were more family members there or not it's this girls responsibility to look after her child all day and night on Xmas day."
