Candice: An early post this week as it is the calm before the storm in the Nolan household.
- Presents wrapped – check
- Table laid – check
- Timings list for food prep for tomorrow – started
I’m feeling more comfortable as the other half has taken the child off for a few hours to play with her cousins, giving me time to do all the last minute stuff.
The build-up to Christmas this year has been a strange one. I am leaving work in January so that makes it strange, I’m not so involved in the 2019 planning, I’m starting to stay goodbye to be people who I won’t see again. I didn’t even get to party in my usual manner as factors beyond my control meant that the glitter stayed in the wardrobe this year. I’m hoping to make up for that on New Year’s Eve.
As Phil said, the writing in the last few months has taken a back burner as I have been concentrating on what I am going to do next job wise. This change has been my chance to sit down and look at what I really want out of work.
I’m hoping to take a short sabbatical before the next big thing, and use that time to do some writing (and acting and decorating). Though I don’t need that sabbatical to be too long. One needs to buy shoes and handbags, don’t you know.
I’ll be writing about new year’s resolutions next time, though I have a list already building, but for now, I’m off to check if the turkey has started to defrost yet, and how long to cook the parsnips for.
Merry Christmas one and all, enjoy whatever Father Christmas brings you.
