I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, even though it's been a bloomin' strange one! Hopefully 2021 will be a little more 'normal' and we can start to plan holiday's or just be able to see family and friends as and when we please. We were due to go to Thailand in March but have had to cancel, so hopefully we'll be able to squeeze a holiday in sometime in the Summer to somewhere in Europe.
Today is the last day of my Christmas break. I must admit it's gone super fast, and all we've seemed to have done is eat, drink and sleep. It's only a 3 day working week for me this week and typically the weather is glorious! Josh is going hiking tomorrow, which I'm a little jealous of but I haven't had the energy for any big walks. We walked over from Cautley Spout back to Sedbergh on Christmas Eve which only took just over 3 hours but I was so tired afterwards that I had a 2 hour kip before tea and bed. On Christmas Day the weather was so crisp and frosty. The sky was blue and it was just so nice considering the circumstances. We had roast pork, stuffing, apple sauce, pigs in blankets, cauliflower cheese, roasted onions and everything else. It was so good! I had been looking forward to Christmas dinner for ages, as last year we had a selection of Thai food, so it was good to be a little more traditional this year.
I need to make the most of this last day, so I'm going to go and get some bits done at the house, like finish painting the ceiling in the lounge and decide on final colours so I may nip to B&Q for paint and get that sorted. Josh is fitting our temporary worktop, which we will have for quite a while before we can afford the quartz worktop we really want. Once that's on we can then get our new SMEG kettle and toaster out - thanks to my Mum and Dad! But I'll show you all this when we have the worktop on and oiled! Anyway, speak soon. Lots of love, L.
