It happens every year. I always think that I will get so much done over the Christmas period with my time off. Every year, I do a bit of cleaning and make some big dinners and never get anything done that I think I will. This year is no exception. I have a to do list as long as my arm, including I was going to begin updating this blog yesterday. And have I done any of it? Well, sort of. I am working on an online professional course and as of today, I am now 40% through it. It should take 3 and a half hours, but I am stopping the videos to take notes and perform some of the tasks that the instructor is teaching while we are there. And I am taking breaks between chapters and only doing so much per day. So, I am slowly but surely working through it. And if I can get it all done by the end of my time off at Christmas, it will be a freaking miracle.
I had also planned to go through my wardrobes and bin things I don’t wear anymore or shouldn’t wear any more. That is going less well. I did a bit before Christmas break, but I need to keep going. There are things in there from high school, which just need to go.
I meant to get a regime going over Christmas, but that has fallen by the wayside as I don’t really feel like getting up at a decent time. And I meant to pick out a new colour to paint the bathroom in the new year. And I meant to upload the photos from this year before it become next year. But instead, I’ve vegged out with a chesty, sinusy cold thing. And now, I’m looking at sales and thinking, hmmmm….
But I am determined things must leave this house before I get any more in the sales. And I need to get on with planning out my January for the project. I have some ideas, but I need to make them more concrete! In the words of Taylor Swift, I need to ‘Shake it off’, this post-Christmas stupor.
