Merry Christmas

Today it’s Christmas Eve! I just wanted to drop a few lines and wish you all a Merry Christmas, to those who celebrate! This year truly flew by super fast. Last year’s Christmas felt like it was only a week or two ago, for me. Crazy, isn’t it?

What are my plans for today? Nothing much, really. I will be spending Christmas with just me, myself and I. I got some deliciousness for dinner today, as well as for tomorrow. I have decided to actually cheat on my diet. I have mentioned this before, I have been intermittent fasting for the past couple of months, like over five months, and I have been doing quite well with eating healthy. I do notice a good change, both physically and mentally. I feel my waist has become a little smaller and I am very thrilled about that. Certain clothes I own I can wear again, so that’s a plus!

But, you know, since it’s Christmas and all, I have decided to cheat on my diet, because I fucking deserve it. So, I got some delicious prepared stuff that I can put in the oven and let it do its thing! I got one pork and one turkey roulade, plus two different kinds of potato gratin, that are ready to go into the oven as well. And some already made haricots verts with bacon. Nom-nom, right? So tonight will definitely be a treat! I also got some random snacks to nibble on after dinner when I will probably lie on my couch like a beached whale, watching sappy and romantic Christmas movies. Now, if that doesn’t sound like top-notch, then I don’t know what is!

Oh, I also got two bottles of South African rosé! So, I may get a little tipsy as well. Which shouldn’t be that hard, because I haven’t had any alcohol for months, when I started fasting. Ah, I can’t wait! Is it weird to get all excited about it? I don’t know.

But anyway, I just wanted to drop a few lines, like I’ve said. I am really starting to repeat myself! I wanna wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Regardless of how things are at the moment on this planet, I really hope you all will have a joyful Christmas, with lots of laughs and delicious food! And I’ll be sure to toast for you all when I start drinking my rosé.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Early Christmas Spirit

A lot of people look down on others who set up their Christmas tree early. But to be honest, I don’t care what they think. Especially this year, with COVID-19 and all the chaos in this world this year, it’s alright to boost up your spirit with some joy, right? Joy and cozy is where it’s at for me, even though I spent Christmas all alone. The days are shorter and the nights are longer. So this year, like the previous couple of years, I have set up and decorated my Christmas tree!

My tree is not the biggest. It is 180cm tall and each year I decorate the tree with silver and purple balls and tinsel. It makes my apartment look really cozy! Last month the clock went back one hour, so that means it’s dark here at 5pm. And I am living for it! Light my tree and lit candles. It’s heavenly!

Have you already set up your tree? And what are your thoughts of people being so damn early with decorating?
