If I was back at school today…

…and my teacher asked me to write a piece about what I did over the Christmas holidays, it would be approximately two sentences long.

I’m not saying that like it’s a bad thing, far from it!

But it is probably one of the quietest Christmas breaks the husband and I have ever had.

It started fairly strong and sociably with friends, and then we did the family thing on Christmas and Boxing Day, and then we got home after that and pretty much didn’t leave our flat. We didn’t go out and we didn’t get dressed – Christmas PJs were the order of the day, pretty much everyday! Our main achievement was getting through two seasons of Dexter (so good) and getting up before 11am.

Our plans of a late lunch on New Years Eve then going home before the marauding crowds descended on the local pubs went by the wayside, as did the plan B of lunch on New Years Day.

The one exception was yesterday when, after a week of no make up or wearing a bra (me, not the husband), we went out for a couple of drinks and a bite to eat.

And now the holiday is over and we’re back to work. I must admit that the appeal and sentiment of my Christmas loungewear is very prevalent today…


How was your Christmas break? Did you do anything interesting?

Thanks, as always, for reading. x

    Nice! Sometimes you just have to do nothing – although getting through 2 seasons of Dexter is quite impressive! How far are you with Dexter now? And what’s your favourite season so far?

    My husband and I aren’t very much into Christmas, so we were at home watching Boston Legal on dvd. Have you ever watched Boston Legal? It’s the only show I love more than Dexter.

        Boston Legal is the best legal ‘drama’ out there. They have the most brilliant cases (thoughtprovoking or downright absurd), incredible twists, and despite this the show is funny. I think it’s the funniest show ever. It even beats Dharma & Greg. You really should give Boston Legal a try. I’m sure your husband will love it too!
