Post-Christmas

Hello all.

I apologise for the lack of posting last week, I was a bit unwell and burned out after a very difficult Friday, but I am now well-ish and back.

This week has gone well, I feel very appreciative of my mood being better. As the world knows, Friday was Christmas. I had doubts a few months back about what Christmas would look like and whether there would be joy. I was very glad to be proven wrong, this Christmas season has been utterly wonderful. My partner who is still here for a little while got to celebrate Christmas with my family.

Simply put, there was good food and very good company. I got some very thougthful presents and there was much joy to be had and some good entertainment. I ended the day rather relaxed. Boxing day yesterday, was a bit busy doing a few jobs that needed doing but we have more than relaxed today.

I am not going to list or show all the presents I got, that was a reason why I came off of social media, I don’t see the point. It was actually so wonderful to simply be in the moment, taking the odd polaroid picture to capture the day and be with those closest to me. I sent the occasional text to friends, it was bliss.

I dressed up a bit for the day, which I haven’t done in so long and felt nice. By 4pm I was in loungewear I won’t lie. I also managed to stay sober despite the temptations which is a massive win. I have also found two new foods I like this festive season. I am so proud of myself!

I have nothing but praise and thanks for this year’s Christmas; I am ever more thankful each year that passes.

How was your Christmas?

Love,

A bit of a ramble…

Hello everyone!

I am just wanting to write a quick post apologising for not posting in the past few weeks.

I feel like I can be open and honest and tell you that I have been unwell recently, and whilst I am usually on top form being able to accomplish everything, right now I just haven’t been able to. It is quite common around this time of year for things to fall out of balance for me and as I have said previously, we just cannot do everything all the time. My priorities have had to be altered.

A lot has been going on between assignments, travelling, volunteering and general life that I am now taking some time in the coming weeks to not only celebrate the festive season but also to plan ahead. I am hoping to get ready for the energy I want to bring in to the New Year with goals and upkeep of positive habits but also plan out some new ideas for this blog.

Thank you to those of you who have been following me, it is truly appreciated. I appreciate each and every one of you and I so hope you have a wonderful couple of weeks and start the new year feeling refreshed.

Much love and happiness,

L x
