Good evening, Happy in-between Christmas and New Year time!
Although it's lovely enjoying the build-up to Christmas: trimming the tree, buying (then eating) all that yummy, totally-terrible-for-you food, seeing friends and family; choosing and then wrapping gifts. It all soon comes cascading down; a landslide even, from a great height once boxing day is done with.........and everyday since that day has felt like a Sunday. I'm in limbo.......Gav and I both have considerable time off work over the holiday period; we have plans for our time off - well, more accurately, I have plans! Plans to do some DIY around the house mainly: yet neither of us can be bothered to do anything. I'm tired of sitting in front of netflix every evening strained for something semi-decent to watch - and then after the fact think: can I actually be bothered now? and then there's the MASSIVE dish of chocolates twinkling in all their gem coloured good(bad)ness - why must you taunt me so?
So yes, Christmas is behind us for another year........and as I sit here now, warm and cosy in my oversized elephant jumper which (I hope) covers and hides a multitude of sins; I can't help but feel restless - just waiting it seems, for I know when the 1st January comes things will be getting back to normal: I'll resume my usual healthy (mostly) eating plan, I'll chuck in some extra workouts - I'm actually doing a bootcamp thing too. We'll all go back to work, school...the usual routines of life and I think I will feel happier, more certain, settled.
I have however been back and forth to the post office sending out vintage goodies for my shop - so at least that has given me an excuse to get dressed most days HA!
I've received some beautiful presents this year though........a gorgeous parasol (which I fully intend to use in the summer: picnics on the river anyone?), a bottle of Hollister perfume which I've wanted for over a year now; I received a massive soap and glory gift set from the Hinge as well as S&G perfume and makeup. Soaps and smellies and plenty of chocolate. Wow, my friends and family know me too well!
So I suppose this will be my last blog post in 2014 - I'll see you all again next year :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
