Sadly my eyes have not been closed a lot lately. We’ve been flat out since November and I cannot wait for the Christmas break to start tonight. I am usually so good at rationing our commitments. I say no with abandon and am definitely in the JOMO camp. However, this year I’ve been off my game and we have been doing something most nights since early November Insane!
But not now. It ends today. I am refocusing my commitment to saying no to things as of this second. This is what else I’ve been up to:
I’m loving: viewing the last works of great artists. It is absolutely fascinating and there is a lady called Yvonne Bernal who has added the most insightful commentary.
I’m enjoying: listening to my daughters playing with their buddies outside on the tree swing. They are having a ‘Christmas sleepover’ with a few besties and it sounds like everyone is having a jolly old time. I love it when my girls play together even when they have friends over. They are never nicer to each other than when there are witnesses.
I’m watching: The End of the Line — a documentary about the ice epidemic in a regional town on the south coast. It could be any town, which is heartbreaking. I’m grateful that people share their stories about things like this.
I’m eating: reduced sugar, but lots and lots of cheese platters, as it happens. Happy festive season!
I’m making: rum balls, rocky road and a glaze for the giant ham that is taking up most of my fridge space right now.
I’m discovering: Unroll.Me — a free download that helps you clean up your inbox. Unsubscribe from all the things!!!!
I’m wondering: what exactly my brain does with all the useless stuff I shove in there.
I’m planning; a little road trip for just me and the kids in the last week of the school holidays.
I‘m looking forward to: being blissfully pampered. Tomorrow I have a spa booked — it’s actually my Mother’s Day voucher from May, which I have finally found the time for and had to beg for an extension on because the gift voucher expired, but no matter, I’m going tomorrow. Facial, hot stone massage, reflexology and a body scrub. Yes, please!
What have you been up to this week? What book should I start with? What are your plans for Christmas?
Are you going away anywhere?
