Getting Ready for Christmas and the New Year

The past few days have been spent preparing for Christmas. The tree is decorated, the presents have all been wrapped up, the cards have been sent and I’m currently finishing off certain projects at work. I am shocked that there are less than 10 days left of 2011 and the shortest day of the year is now over. This has made me reflect about the past year and really think about what I plan to achieve in 2012.

Here is a short list of plans that I currently have floating around in my head:

I would like to:

  1. spend more time on my small business and blog, which has been so neglected during the past year.
  2. spend at least 30 minutes having a walk (out of the office) during lunch time (even in the rain)
  3. eat healthily (I have been watching the Food Hospital on TV which is very interesting)
  4. make more things
  5. be more organised at home and at work.

These sound like early New Year’s Resolutions, which they are, in a way. However, before I start putting these plans in place, I’m going to enjoy the last 10 days of 2011. So far, we have taken our little girl to see Jack and the Beanstalk at the Shaw Theatre. The Nolan Sisters were great as the good and bad fairy. We also went to Surrey Docks Farm Christmas Craft Fair. There were many activities for the kids such as making Christmas wreaths, beeswax candle, Christmas decorations and planting bulbs. Here are a few photos:

We also attended Gracie’s (now Mrs Li) annual Pre-Christmas Roast diner last Sunday. Mr and Mrs Li alway makes such delicious food, including cake off course. This year we had cake and Christmas pudding. She will blog about it at SimplyScrumblicious, but here are few photos:

I hope everyone will have a great Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year! Enjoy your time with your faimily and friends too!
