So I think I'm going to have Christmas day alone for the first time ever, which is why I'm making such an effort to see all the important people in my life in the lead up and then see my family on Boxing day. I definitely enjoy the preparation and festivities before the actual day. Maybe that might change when I have children of my own!
I've just finished a festive yoga class with my instructor over Zoom. Really fab way to start the day and lots of inversions this time. I've been keeping my yoga practice going, except when I was in hospital. It's definitely one of my recovery pillars.
Later on today I'm going for a festive lunch with a good friend and we're going all out with the menu! She has been amazing and, pre covid kicking off earlier this year, we were going swimming weekly. I hope we can resume that soon. I really miss it.
Covid continues to cause havoc.. A week ago we had the most understated Crimbo office party I think I've ever been to. What a laugh! I've only just booked to see Book of Mormon next year and it's being rebooked already. BA started their sale this week and then pulled a load of routes. And yesterday we had Sky News outside our office, as Reading is going from Tier 2 to Tier 3 or 4 on Saturday?? - I really don't know what's happening.
I escaped into my only little world last night after work. I've been watching Ricky Gervais's Derek which I absolutely LOVE, whilst wrapping pressies. That was heaven for me.
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
