By the most wonderful time of the year, I do, of course, mean that it is the X Factor final tonight.
Just kidding (although I’m totally watching it), what I mean is it’s December and I love December.
So, if we were having coffee, I’d say that despite the fact it’s blowing a gale outside and we rarely see the daylight for these winter months, and I’m nursing a slight(ly awful) hangover after the work Christmas party yesterday, I’m still in a good mood.
I would tell you that I’m getting into the Christmas spirit after our departmental Christmas dinner and the work do. I also made my first trip to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, and it turns out that straight after work at five is a good time to go, because it was getting a lot busier when we left around half seven. We got a drink at the Carousel bar (a rotating bar on a converted carousel) and tried to win 2kg of Toblerone (and failed, sadly).
I also went to a showing of White Christmas at the Phoenix Artist Club. It is such a lovely film. (I had completely forgotten everything about it except the song ‘Sisters’, because our mum used to sing that to my sister and I all the time.) The other Christmas films to be watched in the next two weeks are It’s a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, Jack Frost and The Holiday. (We were only two days into December before we put Love Actually on.)
If we were having coffee, I would be excited that there are only five working days before I go home for Christmas! Much as I love my job, I am excited for two weeks off to spend relaxing with family and friends.
The only slight issue with it being only thirteen days until Christmas is that I really need to buy presents! It’s not for lack of trying – I have spent a lot of time online shopping and found plenty of things that I would like to gift to myself, but that’s really not the point, is it?
I would tell you that I have been having a think about next year’s goals (16 for 2016!) and I would ask you if you are making any resolutions or plans. (Let me know in the comments if you are – I’d quite like to do a post with everyone else’s goals for next year.)
Anyway, I’m away just now, but I hope you’re having a lovely December and that you have plenty to look forward to!
