21/12/20 – Christmas prep!

I’ve got my Christmas nails ready to go! We managed to tidy all the house, I wrapped all my presents, and then had time for a little me time. I’m still exhausted and finding it hard to wind down from life right now. Sleeping badly isn’t helping. But tomorrow I’m hoping a long run willContinue reading “21/12/20 – Christmas prep!”

20/12/20 – Cycling to de-stress

Life is quite hard right now, but I take solice in this blog as I know soon enough I’ll look back and this will all be harmless memories. It’s so hard having all our Christmas plans change last minute. All we can do is try to take less focus on Christmas day as an eventContinue reading “20/12/20 – Cycling to de-stress”

19/12/20 – U-turn of Christmas

This weather on our drive was the summery of my mood today… The government have just changed the laws on Christmas visiting, so now I can’t go home to see my family as I’m not allowed to leave London. I’m absolutely gutted by this as I was so looking forward to it, but I knowContinue reading “19/12/20 – U-turn of Christmas”

18/12/20 – Christmas holidays!

I’m officially on my Christmas hols! 16 days out of “the office”. First task after I finished up at work, complete my Christmas puzzle – done! I want to focus on some person design work this break, and potentially line up some blog posts for my other site. I’m so excited to have some timeContinue reading “18/12/20 – Christmas holidays!”

17/12/20 – Zoom bash

Today was my work’s online Christmas party (due to covid we obviously can’t meet up). Nic and I are working at the same company right now so it was super fun having him for company all day through it. The whole thing ended up being really enjoyable! We made mulled wine with whatever we hadContinue reading “17/12/20 – Zoom bash”

16/12/20 – Christmas puzzle!

This time next week I’ll be in Cardiff with my mum for Christmas! It seems our safe plan can still go ahead. Nic and I are currently staying away from any shops, bars, pubs and restaurants (though most of these are shut anyway) in order to be as safe as we can for Christmas withContinue reading “16/12/20 – Christmas puzzle!”

15/12/20 – Christmas Countdown

With ten days to go until Christmas, the UK is apprehensive about a potential change to the “Christmas bubble” situation the government are trying to organise. I’ve already got a plan together with my mum and sister about how we can meet and not break the law (what a crazy sentence) I just hope thatContinue reading “15/12/20 – Christmas Countdown”

14/12/20 – The morning sun

I just love our bedroom as the sun streams in in the mornings. And as we’re still working from home (since March!) I’m managing to avoid dark mornings quite well this year, silver linings and all that… It looks like we’ll be heading into Tier 3 from Wednesday. So this evening I managed to getContinue reading “14/12/20 – The morning sun”

12/12/20 – Afternoon sunsets

It feels like winter solstice is just around the corner with all these 3pm sunsets! Today’s was pretty spectacular though. One last walk of 2020 with Mariana before she heads to Portugal for Christmas! It was a lush chance to natter the hours away. Once back home I got a load more sewing done includingContinue reading “12/12/20 – Afternoon sunsets”
