Seems that in comparison to some we had a boring kind of Christmas. But in this case boring is good. Boring is happy and relaxed, chilling in the same house all day, relatively healthy save for a few sneezes here and there. The 3 groups of friends we had met with had experienced much more eventful days. Couple one's husband was brewing pneumonia and their grandson was sick all over the lounge carpet. Couple two moved abroad 4 years ago and had to fit in many family visits to see everyone. They spent most the day in the car, starting with an elderly parent in Hemel Hempstead, picking up daughter in Colchester, onto son number 1 in Cambridge, then son number 2 in Birmingham and then onto elderly parent in Leicester. Don't envy the designated driver all those miles. Couple three ended up calling the paramedics after an elderly parent fainted and took a while to revive. I'm sure you'll agree that boring was very good in comparison!
I'm trying hard to resist the temptation to make a New Year's resolution. I never keep them and then I end up in December thinking 'what went wrong?'. I have a few intentions though.
- I intend to learn a bit more about photography. Husband has promised me a lesson in Black and White this morning and we're about to head out over the park in a moment for some practice. Wish him luck!
- I intend to eat more healthily. I need to get this chocolate consumption under control. After I've finished off the salted caramel chocolates of course ;-)
- I intend to find a new exercise class. The one I used to go to folded in the summer and the only other one I've found is Zumba and I'm still getting over the trial class I did for that back in May.
- My biggest intention though is to get my scrapping mojo back. It's been forever since I last made a page and there really is no excuse. You'll be able to see how I get on with the first and last intentions via my blog. You'll just have to take my word for the other two ...
