This year we’re spending Christmas in our new house which is very exciting. We still haven’t bought our tree although decorations have been appearing here and there over the last few weeks. Christmas plays and parties have been attended, we keep bumping into Father Christmas, and the presents have been bought and wrapped. We just have the big day left to look forward to 🙂
It’s been a while since we made plans for New Year and it seems we’re not alone. In a recent survey about New Year’s Eve, a whopping 64% of people questioned were staying in which is funny as the same survey found that New’s Year’s Eve was the second favourite event after Christmas. I love both Christmas and New Year but am more than happy to put my feet up and stay in after a hectic Christmas.
The same survey also found that New Year’s resolutions have fallen out of favour which is good because, let’s be honest, who has time to keep them anyway! The only New Year’s Resolution I’ll be making is to have less screen time. It feels like I’ve spent too much time reading the internet so next year I’ll be spending more time with my children making exciting train tracks in the lounge and finishing off Peppa Pig puzzles.
We’ve had a pretty good year – we moved across London to our new house, the toddler started a new nursery and starred in his first Christmas play, Little Sis started nursery too, and we’ve all been enjoying pretty good health until recently.
I’m going to have to think of some fun things to do on New Years Day. It will be the last day of our family holiday before daddy goes back to work and nursery starts up again. A day in the fresh air would be perfect and a great way to embrace the New Year.
