Does it feel a little like Christmas is now just a distant memory to you too? My return to work this week has been slow and painful (though the air-conditioning has been nice) … So after seeing Kylie share her lovely Christmas gifts earlier in the week, I thought doing the same might help shake some of my return-to-work blues …
Aside from receiving lots of iTunes gift cards (YAY for new music!), I also did rather well in the other gift departments – with a lovely mix of books, homewares and stationery … clearly those near and dear to me know how to pick my favourite things.
There’s a cookbook which makes rather large claims about the recipes it contains (I wonder if my lack of culinary abilities will prove that title wrong?); a sweet book about Jane Austen and her world; an adorable letter-writing set; and a shiny new iPad. Aside from spending time with family and friends, these are just a few of the things that have made me happy over the festive season … I feel well and truly spoiled!
Of course this influx of new things sparked yet another cleanout of old things. The impact of which has been that I am slowly starting to see some physical benefits from my cleansing efforts – I finally have available space!
So … what’s happening in your world? Are you still enjoying a welcome holiday, or are you struggling to overcome those return-to-work doldrums too?
