It's been a busy week and I've been out every day due to a prior commitment, that I'm not at liberty to discuss on my blog. Anyway, thankfully today that commitment was met in full and I am now free to enjoy the festive season. So Christmas starts here.
My new found freedom was celebrated with a little trip out to bank my sealed box money, to minimise my now very small overdraft, do a final tiny bit of Christmas shopping and pick up a few groceries in the process. This was followed by my first dog walk for the week. OH has been on double dog walking duty this week, due to my early starts, so the least I could do was get straight back to it. Besides, it is important bonding time between myself and the dog too, which I had missed this week.
Later, I managed a quick charity drop off, that I hadn't had the time to do earlier in the week, before cooking some supper and then sorting all the rubbish and recycling in time for the last collection before Christmas tomorrow.
Tonight, for the first time I can finally put my feet up and start to relax and enjoy the lead in to Christmas. My time out of the house every day has made me really appreciate the sanity and normality of our everyday life and I don't intend to go anywhere much tomorrow. I think a day at home catching up on chores is called for, before we head into Christmas week. How's your lead in to Christmas going?
