Okay, I’ve taken down the decorations both at home and at work, and am watching Irish people try alcoholic advent calendars on YouTube. Must be a day off. This is my rock and roll lifestyle – I’ve even checked in with lady s to hear that she’s taken down their tree as well. Our respective living rooms suddenly seem a lot bigger.
From here on out we’re into January properly – that strange 900 day stretch to the next paycheque where everyone looks increasingly longingly at the reduced price luxury food in the shops that common sense tells us that we really can’t afford for either monetary or health reasons.
So that’s something to enjoy, yes?
It’s official, I’ve finally reached that stage of the Christmas holidays where I’ve lost track of what day it is. I was beginning to feel left out. It was only when I messaged lady s about something this morning and she reminded me that it was only Sunday today that I realised that I have entered that weird state fuelled by excess and no work where I have come adrift from all routine.
Admittedly the amount of driving up and down and across the country hasn’t helped as those have now taken on the status of week resets even by dint of not being actually a week apart.
So yes, this is my reminder to myself that it’s the last Sunday of the year and decade. A quick look at the site stats tells me that this is the busiest the site has been in four years in terms of traffic – must be all the more regular posting I’ve got back into doing 😉
Right, I’m off out to see my daughter for our third? Christmas. Have fun everyone
