An Enjoyable Week and a Big Thank You

I'm enjoying this week.  I've spent two days at the CS, one more to go today.  Yesterday, I spent time hanging out at home, attending my last Zumba class of the year, doing a bit of last minute gift shopping and once again emptying the ironing basket.

We also had a delivery of a food gift hamper, from OH's parents, with some nice luxury foods in there that we've already made a start on. We've decided that Christmas has now officially started in our house.

LB had 4 friends over for a sleepover on Wednesday night to celebrate school being out for the holidays. Whilst they were here, we slipped out for a couple of hours to pick up my console/dressing table, that I'd purchased on eBay. It has already been commandeered into action in our bedroom and looks great.  I can't quite fit everything I wanted to in it's drawers, but that will encourage me not to hoard new products for future use and only buy things as I need them, which is all good. I'll post about it in the New Year.

My days at the CS this week have been enjoyable, busier than the new manager expected, which is good, but there's been a nice atmosphere and the time has passed very quickly this week.

It's the first time I've worked in any capacity in the week before Christmas, for over 10 years and I've enjoyed being occupied. Who knows, maybe next Christmas I might even have a paid job somewhere. Whatever happens, it's good to get out there amongst other people again and see and experience life outside of the house. It's one thing I definitely don't regret about 2016.

As you can probably tell, I'm starting to get a bit reflective about the year that has just passed. Lots of things have happened, mostly good things thankfully.  I've achieved some of my aims and aspirations and failed with  regard to others, but I've enjoyed the year and I am thankful for that. Who knows what 2017 will bring and what will be achieved and I'm now starting to look towards it.

I probably won't be posting much between now and next year (although I will still be reading when I can get a connection), so I will take this opportunity to thank everyone for reading my blog this year and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year for yourselves and your loved ones.

I'll see you in January.
