Ho, ho, ho it’s almost Christmas and you know what that means, a time to eat, drink, open presents, be with family (aka, support bubble if you’re from the UK) and a time to reflect, on what we can all agree on as being one of the worst years in history for everyone!
IT’S FREEKING CHRISTMAS
Well almost! And that is just the start of things. Like I said It has been a rough year for most of us. And the majority of us have had our own personal BS added on top of an exhausting world pandemic. Just when you probably thought things couldn’t get any worst, it probably did. But guess what? you came out the other end and are probably stronger for the better.
As we all know, Christmas is that time of the year where everyone gets together with family and friends. Christmas will be very different for most this year with various restrictions in place of who can spend time with who, for keeping everyone safe in ratios. So if there is anything I am grateful for it is my family.
Family | My family are there for me whenever I need them. My true support bubble. The people I need to make me feel safe, reassured and to share in their positivity. Without the positivity of my family and partner, I am not sure where my state of mind would be, for that I am a better person.

What I’m wearing
Health | I am eternally grateful for good health. I mean it could be better for what my dietary intake is like (don’t even get me started on that one) But in all seriousness I am glad to be well in health. Obviously physical as well as mental health has been the main factor for 2020. If you did not have symptoms of Covid, chances are you probably knew some who did.
Up until now I have been lucky to not have any symptoms AND still don’t, But a week ago I was asked to get tested, as a fellow colleague had it. Luckily I was tested and my results were negative. I weren’t particularly worried as I have been taking all the precautions of wearing a mask when out in public.
Washing my hands and keeping my 2 meter distance from others. Having and being in good health means, I get to continue keeping my loved ones safe, healthy and I get to continue to do all the things I want, such as blogging.
Pets | My biggest part of my family would be our pets! Sorry Mum. If you didn’t already know from my Instagram highlights, I have two cats and a dog. Which all three are female and keep me very busy and very well entertained. I have a tutorise shell cat made up of browns, white and ginger.
A black cat that talks non stop and is highly entertaining, even at night! And a little white Maltese dog (which actually belongs to my Sister) but I think of her as my own (she’s an angle). Pets add so much to a family. Whether you have pets or plants both can bring you joy, it is that desire to give, to nurture and to love.
Break | A much needed break! Even if you have been unfortunate to be furloughed most of the year, I am sure you have been keeping yourself busy in other ways. Whether it was looking for a new job, another job or just taking a break and taking up a relaxing new hobby (the start of something new and big for you). Remember to enjoy your holiday break with your family whatever persons they are made up from and look forward to better things…because they are coming!
Food | I’m sure with things being a little tighter on the purse strings front, A big Christmas food shop may not be possible this year and that is still ok! Why not think about getting the main food pieces first and maybe leave out the repetition of food. Do you really need four big bags of potato or could you manage with 2. Do you really need 6 tins of chocolate or will 4 do? Do you really need 8 boxes of crackers? or will 2 boxes do? Whatever you chose to put on your Christmas dinner table, let it be full or heart and care.
