My feet have felt the November chill nipping them. I quite like having cold feet, but the rest of my body must be wrapped tightly. It’s been jeans, sweaters, jeans, sweaters, day in and day out. The streets are wonderful to walk in the cold. Most of my free time has been spent outside this month.
Shelves are stacked with the ‘perfect Christmas gifts’ but I’m still searching for the perfect gifts to give. Honestly, I wandered aimlessly. I’m clueless of what to purchase for anyone. In fact the only person I can cross off my list so far is my dad and he would usually be the difficult one. That just summarises 2018 for me: this has been a year turned on it’s head.
My heads been way off in the clouds, walking in many different shoes but my own. There’s a lot of people in need of Christmas spirit this year. Although they may not want it right now, I’m hopeful they are able to have some happy moments among the difficult ones. I have perhaps an odd notion, that if I keep faith at the front of my heart it will somehow spread to the people around me. That would be really brilliant. There’s not much I can do otherwise.
While I’ve been quite absent from my blog, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do next with it. It’s probably about time I realise I’m never going to make a final decision. Every time I think I have things figured out I decide there’s more I can do to improve. If I keep overthinking the way I do I’ll never be fully happy. Already I’m wondering if this post is going at all well, but you’re still here right? Right.
Oh, something new which may come as a surprise to some of you who know me well: I’m watching ‘Friends’ properly for the very first time. I’ve seen the odd episode before but now I’m running through it start to finish. It’s going very well. I absolutely love the 90s. Did I write a blog post about that before? I know I planned to… ANYWAY I’m loving it and will probably express that in more detail at a later date.
Tomorrow is Christmas the first. Nobody can say it’s too early from tomorrow and that makes me very excited. November was a great break but from tomorrow I won’t be able to contain myself. See you in December you beautiful lot! But also feel free to tell me about your November too, as I said, it’s been a while since we’ve caught up!
