What a nice Christmas! Yes, we did not see our families. But we spent a cozy long weekend at home and properly relaxed. And we talked to both our families on the phone. As it first rained heavily and then got really cold, I didn’t even step outside for a few days. I don’t think I missed anything though. Everything I really needed was at home – Rich, the kittens, plenty of Christmas foods. Also a few good books and our TV. It was the perfect break and I got so many naps and kitten cuddles. At one point I even put my phone away and haven’t looked at it since.
We didn’t have an exciting Christmas, but one that fitted the year and us. The last months were stressful and so Christmas was a welcome break. I now have another week of Christmas break while Rich unfortunately has to go back to work. So I guess I’ll spend a little more time on the sofa before I start doing a few tasks that I recently neglected.
