|My week in my Filofax #52|
I really like how they have turned out. There hasn't been too much I've had to do once all the food preparation was out of the way so I had a lot of extra space for decorations.
Christmas Day was lovely and went without a hitch. All my planning meant dinner was served on time and was all still hot when it reached the table. I have to admit I am always surprised when I manage to pull it off each year!
Boxing Day and the day after were spent with our parents. I do tend to enjoy these days a bit more as there is no pressure any more and we can all relax and just spend time together. I think sometimes I get caught up in the idea of a "perfect Christmas" which is just placing too many expectations on one single day and on myself.
On Sunday I finally got to watch The Princess Bride! Can you believe that I, a girl who grew up in the 80's, had never seen this film before? My friend Stephanie had told me how great it was and that I would love it a couple of months back but then I completely forgot about it. When I noticed it was on in the tv guide I wrote it in my Filofax so I would remember to watch it and I absolutely LOVED it! I think I might even have to buy the DVD!
So that was my Christmas, how was yours? It is New Years Eve today and it is 6pm here in the UK. We aren't going out tonight but I am looking forward to seeing in the new year at home with my family.
|Happy New Year!|
I'd like to wish you all a happy New Year, have a great night however you are celebrating and I hope to see you all again in January 2014!
