Hey there, Sparklers 🙂
Sorry I haven’t written much lately, nothing interesting has happened recently. Or where I’ve thought “I could blog about this”. Life has been pretty boring lately. That and having a spot of writers block, which I can tell you first hand, SUCKS.
Today I had the chilled out day that I needed. I had a lovely lie-in until 10am which is rare for me now, but my lovely mum babysat for a few hours whilst I caught up on my sleep as I’ve been having bad nights recently. For me, bad nights = bad mood and zero energy.
Then it was time to get ready and go to the FIRST EVER Christmas Market in my village. EXCITED MUCH!!! I was feeling very festive this morning, so I dug out my Christmas Jumper and even applied Christmassy-coloured make up. I was really feeling it.
I went to the market with my dad and Alexa, which is special in itself as my dad isn’t very well and it’s rare that he feels up to leaving the house. It was the first time I had an outing with both my dad and Alexa (that didn’t involve hospitals), which made me so happy.
Now obviously I took quite a bit of stuff with me in a decent sized, bright pink handbag, as well as taking the buggy in case Alexa got tired. So whilst I held on to Alexa, my dad agreed to push the buggy, but he wasn’t very impressed when I asked him to hold my bag for a moment whilst I sorted Alexa out.
I got a dirty look which read “you’ve got to be kidding me!”
He’s definitely what you call a “manly man” and I found it absolutely hilarious so I let him hold my bag longer than he needed to just because his reactions were priceless. If only I’d have thought of capturing the moment!
The market itself wasn’t what I thought it would be. I guess it didn’t reach my expectations of a Christmas Market. I was expecting the full blown, all out Christmas style, but it just looked like an ordinary market with a elf here and there. I guess that’s all you can expect in a village, it’s not the same as going to a Christmas Market in a city.
I was slightly disappointed at the outcome, but I didn’t let it ruin my day or my Christmas Spirit as it was just so nice to have a relaxing walk with lots of laughter, hot drinks and bumping into lots of family friends that I haven’t seen in a long time.
Once we got back the day carried on being chilled out, I got straight back into my pyjamas and tucked myself up under a blanket with my chippy dinner, binge watching Christmas films. I even had a nice little nap! I even remained under the blanket for most of the day, admiring the Christmas decorations and chatting with my family.
Today was just what I needed. Now I feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Nothing beats a good nights sleep and a chilled day with people you love when you aren’t feeling your best.
I hope you enjoyed reading this little post and I’ll be blogging again soon! 🙂
Lots of love,
