It’s been a couple of weeks since my last blog post.
My last post was about motivation and what keeps me going. I’ve been pushed to the max over recent weeks so I’ve had to re read it a couple of times to keep me going.
I had a weekend off over bonfire night so it meant we got to do some Halloween activities too. We visited White Post Farm and carved pumpkins, and made chocolate pumpkin shaped muffins.
So it’s now the count down to Christmas. I can not believe it’s under 8 weeks away.
Unfortunately I am now working 5 out of the 6 weekends on the lead up to Christmas – far from ideal.
I want to get in to the spirit of the festive season this year. I’m determined not to be the grinch.
I want to enjoy hot chocolates with whipped cream and marshmallows; late night shopping and wandering round the markets for little homemade presents.
We are going to see Santa and his reindeer, and to go for family walks in our coats, hats and wellies.
This Christmas is going to be the best yet.
If someone was to tell me where I would be now, this time last year, I wouldn’t have believed them.
I still take life a day at a time, never looking too far ahead. But slowly…slowly it is getting easier.
So what are you looking forward to this festive season?
