Merry Christmas

A very belated Merry Christmas to you all, I do hope it was a one filled with love, laughter and good food. Ours was a quiet one but all the same wonderful. The week before was an exhausting one for me to say the least, the yearly stock take meant I had to work 12 hour night shifts for the week. At one point I had no idea what day it was or indeed what time of day it was!!

Mr.B helped me plan out the week before it started so that everything was organised to the last dot so that I didn't have to worry about anything other than working and sleeping. Which is pretty much all I did :( It passed over quite quickly and it only took me a couple of days to get back into my normal sleeping pattern.

I could then focus on Christmas and relaxing....

We had my Dad stay for Christmas this year and while I couldn't remember a Christmas spent with him he said that he thought I was about 5. So now I'm 36, 11 months and 13 days old, it was a special Christmas to have him here. He made soup for our starter and helped with the lunch, we opened our presents and drank lots of good wine. 

For many reasons I'm hoping that 2017 is different, better, yes but different would be a start. I've come to realise over these last few months that only I can change the direction of my life and now its time I took control. Maybe at the time time I thought sitting back and letting things progress naturally was the right thing to do, but looking back now there are some things I would have done a little differently. I'm not one for looking back or regrets so I'm just gonna get right in there and start the winds of change.

Wish me luck :)

p.s. next post will be a recipe.......parsnip soup!
