Well, it’s a new year so what better time to start (and hopefully stick to) a new Sunday Summary feature on the blog? As I haven’t posted in a while this will be a bit of an extended version covering the last 2 or 3 weeks.
I didn’t have any exams this semester (which means I have double the amount in May, ugh) so I’ve had plenty of time to relax and get myself in the festive spirit, decorating the flat and making a wee Christmas dinner for me and my flatmate, as well as having a few nights out in Edinburgh. I came back home to my parents house a couple of days before Christmas and since then I haven’t really done very much at all apart from eating and watching TV!
We had some family over on Christmas Eve and had our big roast dinner then so on Christmas day we just had leftovers. I got up about 10am and had Bucks Fizz with breakfast and after that we opened our presents. I mostly got books and food, which suits me just fine! I got a couple of baking/cupcake books so have been doing lots of baking this week. I spent the whole of Christmas day in my onesie, watching TV, playing The Sims and reading, perfect!
I haven’t bothered braving the sales as I’ve heard quite a few people say they’re a bit rubbish this year. I’ve had a quick look online but nothing has really grabbed my attention so I think I’ll just save my money for when I’m back in Edinburgh and spend it all in the new Primark! Have you got any bargains in the sales this year?
I had a very low key Hogmanay as well, we had a big meal with my grandparents and some family friends last night. Had lots of wine and cocktails and went to bed about 1.30am. As much as I love going out on any other night, New Year has never really been a big deal for me – it’s always a bit overrated, expensive and difficult to organise. Staying in with the family, who provide you with food and booze, is much better!
University classes don’t start up again until January 16th so I think I’ll stay at home for another week or so before heading back. I love living away from home but it is nice to come back for a couple of weeks to see the family and my dogs! Was trying to take some pictures of the puppy to include in this post but he hates getting his photo taken, I’ll have to try and take some sneaky ones while he’s asleep!
What did you get up to for New Year?
