I’m now feeling more festive by the day.
Decorations are up and last night I ate mince pies off a Christmas themed plate. I felt a definite sense of smugness at this.
I’ve put a Christmas CD in the car.
A few more gifts to buy (and wrap).
And I go on leave in a weeks time (cannot wait!!) 🙂
I love this time of year and yet I know it can be super busy for so many of us. All the running around trying to tick things off an endless to-do list.
Monday was a seriously busy day and I knew that after work we should go to gym. Then do grocery shopping. And have something healthy for dinner.
When the work day got to the end I decided to shake things up! As I climbed into the car I told hubby that gym can wait. He happily agreed 🙂 We decided on a spontaneous date night and it was fabulous.
We went to the movies and watched “Bad Moms Christmas”. It was really funny – days later I’m still chuckling at random parts of the movie 🙂 The cast is brilliant and I found the Mom’s Mothers hilarious! Cheryl Hines is sooooooo funny!
Then we had dinner at one of our favourite restaurants. Chatting away over delicious food I felt relaxed and it just added to my festive feeling. It was a perfect date night with my ❤
This time of year is often so busy and I’m determined not to get sucked into a whirlwind of stress. I just want to enjoy this special season and fit lots of laughter and relaxation into the next few weeks.
How do you relax during the holiday season?
