Merry CHRISTMAS!! Ok, well, it may be a few days late *cough cough* a week. But heck, I spent most of 2015 behind; let me hope that in 2016 I am better with deadlines. Not that I ever missed a deadline. Just personal ones. So being in England, I was away from pretty much everyone I knew in the US. However, I was never alone for the holidays. I spent with them with my best friend and his family.
I headed over a bit earlier, and I helped his mum with decorating and wrapping presents. I swear I have become a pro at wrapping thanks to my old job as a preschool teacher… odd the skills you pick up. Anyways back on topic. We headed back the day before Xmas eve and spent some lovely quality family time with his parents. We watched the “Snowman” on the telly(which was also the play we had watched earlier that month; story to come on that…yeah, I am so behind -..-) vegged out and had a few laughs while also catching some star wars marathons.
The next day we headed over to his Uncle’s with his parents, which you can read a bit about under the past articles tab on the site. I was EXTREMELY nervous but being a rather anxious person… that would be relatively normal being around new people. His family welcomed me with many open arms and warm smiles—good food, Drinks, and people all around. So the holidays were very warm and caring.
Now it’s the new year, and it’s time to see what it brings. I don’t make resolutions because, honestly, if you need a New Year’s Resolution to make positive changes in your life, you will not make those changes. That’s why so many people fail their resolutions. If you want to make a change, THEN DO IT. No excuses. On that happy note. Enjoy your new year and make 2016 anything you want. 😀
