Merry Christmas, hope you have had a magical day however you spent it.
Another lie-in for me, although I did sleep fitfully due to a few glasses of wine yesterday and a bit of a sore head this morning. A good drink of water and some ibuprofen did the trick to make me feel more human again.
I had planned to have a fairly relaxed day so no actions were time-bound. Thankfully, the beef stew I put in the slow cooker overnight had worked well and smelt delicious when I went into the kitchen this morning.
Had some coffee and breakfast – usually, I might have some bubbles with breakfast as it’s Christmas day but as I was still feeling a little delicate I decided that I’d wait to have a drink with lunch, this proved fortuitous as one of my friends replied to my festive message saying that her husband had tested positive for COVID this morning and was ill in bed.
As I’d made a large pot of stew I offered to bring them some to save them worrying about cooking today. My friend and I went out for a walk with their dog before I came home.
It was lovely to see her and have a catch up as it has been a few weeks since we’d had coffee.
Once I got home I realised that I hadn’t opened all my presents – I received some beautiful and thoughtful gifts from family and friends and feel so blessed to have people in my life who truly understand and accept me for who I am, I now need to learn to accept myself!!
I’m now in bed with a very full belly and thankfully for my life and the people in it!
