Wowzers, it’s been a while since my last blog post… I’ve kind of lost my momentum lately, I’ve been soooo busy with a tiny little uneventful thing called Christmas (😁😍🎄🎅🏻🤶🏻🎁☃️), and although there were so many potential blog posts I could’ve shared in the run up to the big day, I’ve been so busy with cake and card orders that I didn’t actually properly get the chance to feel my usual 100% festive self until Christmas Eve! (And that was only when I sat down in my pjs and let out a big sigh of relief that everybody’s presents had been delivered out to them and all my cakes (except for one) had been baked and handed out. I usually like to bake cupcakes for presents at Christmas but this year has just been manic so I didn’t get the chance to do any that weren’t ordered by people! ☹️
Now it’s the 28th December, and I’m currently sat waiting for the last cake of the year to cool down enough for me to ice, so I thought what better time to get a blog post out there. And seeing as it’s 12:16pm and I’m in pjs and a slanket (honestly if you’ve not heard of these, google them. Game changer for the blanket lovers out there!), I thought it was a good time to grab myself the umpteenth cuppa of the week and get some words written down! ☕️📝 I don’t know about you but the Christmas break is always a bit of an odd one for me. The run up to Christmas Day itself is all good, I break up a few days before, then it’s just a case of getting the last few bits of prep sorted out. Then once Christmas Day and Boxing Day are over with, the rest just merges into one big pj wearing, tea drinking, film watching day! You lose track of the day, the time, the weather (if, like me, you like to close the curtains and forget everything except what’s on the tv!!)
Don’t get me wrong, this year I really feel like I need the chill out! It’s been a whirlwind of a year (in good ways and bad), and I’m looking forward to 2018 and what it may bring me. I already have social plans in my diary for 2018, and am determined to make some amaaazing memories with my friends and family.
Nope, resolutions are not my thing. At the end of the day I know I want to lose weight, but it’ll happen when it’s meant to happen and not because I make a resolution because I think that’s what I should do seeing as it’s a new year new start blah blah…🤷🏻♀️
I may not have resolutions but I do have certain feelings about the change from 2017 to 2018. One thing I’ve learnt this year is to cherish the people who have been there for me. Sometimes we drift away from people who we thought we’d always be close to, and that’s okay. Sometimes maybe it’s just the way things are meant to work out. I’ve decided that in 2018, I’m going to accept it and not spend my time worrying about why I don’t see some people anymore. Sometimes people come back to you and that’s great, but we can’t force them to, and I’ve decided that if people make their way back into my life, then it’s because they want to and not because they think it’s what they should do.
Anyway, I have a cake to ice and presents to find homes for, and I guess at some point I should get changed into fresh pjs and make myself another tea ☕️ (because if you can’t be a full-on tea belly when you have days off work, when can you?! 👍🏼 ).
I may not have resolutions for 2018, but I DO have a little agreement I’ve made with myself and that’s to be more committed to writing blog posts. I had alllllll the pretty stationery for Christmas so really I should do them justice and get some blog posts brainstormed…😬
Peace out ✌🏼 xxx
