Post Festive Round Up


The run up to Christmas was fairly hectic to say the least! We now have our house on the market and it was a bit mad trying to finish up some last minute jobs, before travelling up to Orkney for Christmas and New Year.

Spending 2 weeks with my in-laws has certainly highlighted my hermit tendencies and has brought back childhood memories of hiding in my room for days just enjoying my own company and busying myself with whatever project took my fancy and only appearing for meals. My in-laws probably think I'm some weird antisocial crack-pot and perhaps to some extent that's true, although I would have been more social if my SIL and her fiancé were elsewhere. I find I can't relax in too much mess and their laziness was getting to me, but 3.5 bottles of sherry seemed to help a bit!

A few days before we were scheduled to come home, we had to go to the post office and outside a man in a wheel chair sped down the ramp and junk punched another man who was on a mobile phone at the time – not something you see every day!

I think the term junk punch is quite funny, so I decided to tell my MIL and FIL this story. I'm not sure if they understood, but I'm just pleased with myself that I brave enough to do it!

Since being back home it's been quite relaxing. However, there are plenty of things that need to be done and this weekend it all starts again. Clearing out cupboards, packing things, trying to find things again! It seems to be endless, but it's all worth it!
