The Weekend Blog (Vol.81)
5th December 2015
December is finally here! I survived November, although barely, and I can finally count down the days until
Christmas I can go home.
My anxiety has been absolutely terrible this week as I’m still not feeling 100% after the incident I spoke about in the Weekend Blog last week. But instead of moaning about it all over again I though I’d highlight some of the better parts of my week.
Tyrone and I met in town after work on Monday to do some shopping. He wanted jumpers and I wanted Christmas presents, and we discovered that shopping after work is so much better than shopping at the weekend in the Christmas season. Shops that are usually too busy to go in are a little bit quieter and makes Christmas shopping a tad bit easier.
You can probably guess I failed my November goal of finishing my Christmas shopping by the end of November. Actually, I failed ALL of my goals for November. Bravo, Holly.
We put our Christmas tree up on Tuesday because we were too excited and couldn’t wait any longer. I picked up three new decoration from my travels this year so it’s looking very geographical.
I launched my first ever reader survey on Thursday and I would appreciate it so much if you were to fill it in. To those who already have, thank you so, so much!
It was our workplace Christmas meal last night, but the celebration started while we were still in the office. We had bacon and sausage baguettes for breakfast, then mulled wine, prosseco and cookies during the afternoon office meeting. Yep, I love my job!
We had our Christmas meal at an Italian restaurant in Liverpool. I had a lovely evening with lovely people and drank a lot of wine. It was the pick-me-up I needed.
Now there are just 13 more working days before I go home for Christmas, which I am ridiculously excited about. In the meantime I’m going to try and enjoy December and all the festiveness as much as possible.
Have a great weekend!
