I like freedom a lot and I don’t value tradition that highly. I’m not one to create rules and I like to not be held down by too many plans either. So one Christmas was particularly memorable because we did our own thing. It was just my Mum, my sister and I. I wasn’t big on Christmas dinner and neither was Mum. So she asked me what food I actually wanted and we had tomato soup and bread to dip in. That was one of my favourites until it started giving me acid reflux. I had also bought my mum two Megadeth CDs and we actually listened to them whilst we were eating lunch.
It was different, chilled and really nice. I do like to spend more time around my family at Christmas but on the actual day I like nothing more than just spending it with Carl and Jasper (my dog). It makes it just about us. There are no obligations and we can do exactly what we want to do. That was what this Christmas was like. Stress free, unchaotic and full of freedom. That’s one thing I love about my Mum. She has always given me a lot of freedom.
I can’t wait to see Carl opening his presents from me. I can’t even write what I got because I don’t want to spoil them for him but I’m really excited as I put effort into them. I also can’t wait to see what my presents are. I’ve been feeling them and can guess a few, like DVDs, but can’t figure out exactly what I’ve got.
I feel like a little kid swept up into the magic of Christmas! I’ve been feeling way more optimistic about life recently and Christmas falls into that category. I’m also really looking forward to the new year. I have lots of ideas for my blog and my book that I am (slowly) writing. It’s about a journey so in order to write it I need motivation that comes from experiences that I have! So much to look forward to. I’m even going on holiday next year and it’s our 5 year anniversary in June.
I’ll stop babbling now and get some sleep! 3 more sleeps and 2 more days at work to go! x
