Unsurprisingly, I didn't get two minutes in December to update the blog. December was chaos, but fun. For the first time in years we put our tree up at the start of December. It was lovely. Just by being there the tree gently eased us into the Christmas spirit.
And wow - we got a white Christmas! I can't remember the last time that happened. I might be old fashioned, but a layer of snow on the ground makes Christmas day just about perfect.... along with that glass of sherry of course. (Yes I am really an 80 year old trapped in the body of a 30+ year old)
The only down side of December was the constant illness that we seem to have had in the house. Both children just haven't been sleeping. Runny noses, coughs, teething pains, and night-time potty training, have all contributed to sleepless nights. So if anyone has any advice on night-time training, I could do with the help. The elder wants to do it, and doesn't like pull-up nappies anymore. But she also doesn't want to get out of bed when it's really cold at night. Help!
As far as the looking 'yummy' task is concerned. Christmas did help. I now have a fabulous new dress and new boots. My next task is too make more of an effort to get fit. Although I don't feel particularly fat; I know I am a good two stone heavier than I was when I was dancing full-time. And I definately don't have the energy I used to. So it's about getting healthy. Yes.... I know it's a huge cliche - a new year dawns and everyone hits the diets. But for me, I think it's more about hitting the dance floor. So I need to find a good dance class that is aerobically difficult, technically difficult, and not miles away. Hmmm. I guess I'd better start the research then!
Happy new year everyone!
