I’d had it all planned out, all the posts for the whole of December and I was doing so well up until last weekend when I had a few impromptu days of visitors and spending time with friends that catching up on Blogmas was nearly impossible.
It isn’t often that I have last-minute plans and lose a few days of blogging but it was really nice to spend time with friends who I haven’t seen for years and spend the time catching up over a few glasses of wine, eating lovely food and just spending quality time together.
Then, before I knew it, Christmas was upon us! I worked Monday and Tuesday, zooming home after work each day to finish writing cards and wrapping presents that I had forgotten about, packing a bag for myself and Roxy and travelling to my friends on Christmas Eve to spend Christmas Day there. I headed back on Boxing Day, then gathered some things, had a shower and drove to my Mum and Dads house to have our Christmas with my brothers, sister in law and my niece and nephew.
I had a really lovely time seeing the kids open their presents, spend time chatting with all of the family and eating lots of lovely food, including lots of cheese (sorry Dad!) before arriving home and heading to bed.
On Friday I had to go to work but the day was easy and quiet with only a few of us in. It was the perfect atmosphere to get all of the loose ends tied up and ready for Januarys payment to be made.
I got home from work around 4:20pm and cleaned the house and tidied up before heading to bed early, both Roxy and I were shattered! I was up early on Saturday and whizzed the hoover around as my brother, sister-in-law, my niece and nephew were popping by before heading back to London.
It has been a hectic, mad and brilliantly fun festive period but I am so glad that we only do this once a year! I’m now on count down to the New Year! I have so many plans and ideas for the New Year and I can not wait to get everything underway and started!
How was your Christmas? I hope you all had fun! what are your plans for New Year’s Eve?
