I was in bed at 10pm last night and managed to stay in bed until 8.30am this morning. I’d snoozed on and off all evening watching trashy, but sweet, romcoms.
I was awake a good few times, through the night, but managed to doze back off, thankfully. I’m still really tired today. It’s 3.20pm and I could manage a wee nap…. I might just do that while Craig watches the World Cup Final.
I got up to walk the dogs but it was super icy again. I got my big coat on and went out into the garden and threw balls for the dogs. I then randomly started cutting back bushes. As you do on a very cold December morning, a week before Christmas!
I went to Beith Parish Church this morning as my neighbour, Holly, took the Nativity service and we went to support her.
Rachel, two doors down took the actual church selfie! I did force her into it 😂
I used to be a choir girl when I was wee. I was a member of St James the Less, Penicuik and sang in the church choir until I was about 18 before I went off to University in Edinburgh. Church is a HUGE trip down memory lane for me. I’ve not carried on my “membership”…. What does that even mean but it’s a huge reminder of my childhood. Church was a huge part of Christmas for us.
St James have their 9 Lessons and Carol Service tonight. I would love to be there but just not enough to actually go.
I seem to have developed a bit of a driving anxiety over the last few weeks. I’m reluctant to go anywhere much because I don’t want to drive. I’m sure it will pass. It might be the dark, the cold weather or just the fact that Abbie the Campervan has had her wobbles. She’s stopped wobbling but I am definitely having a driving wobble just now.
I’ve not had any more heart palpitations which is good. Just a crawling unease about driving.
Anyway, the service was lovely and Holly did very well. I got to sing “Once in Royal David’s City”, “ Away in a Manger” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” this morning…. A shyly as I could. I just wanted to let it rip 😂😂😂
When I came back I felt I was all dressed up, with nowhere to go….. I stood around for about 10 minutes, trying to figure out what best to do.
I got the onesie on, put Die Hard on tv…. Yes it is a Christmas movie 😂 and started wrapping presents.
Die Hard is a Christmas movie… these T-shirts from last year, say it all.
So that’s Sunday. It’s 4pm now and I’m acting like the day is over and it’s not at all. There are still another 3 Die Hard movies to watch 🎬😂 and that nap!
Oh forgot to say, still getting lots of lovely M&S advent gifts…. This morning’s was nail polish but I’ve had new perfume, an eye liner and L’Occitane hand cream which is £17 alone!!
It’s been the best gift. I might ask for an advent calendar for my birthday every year 😂
Have a lovely Sunday evening and remember, we can handle everything this week throws at us.
It’s a busy one for me, working right up until 1pm on Christmas Eve. 🎄🎅🏼🤶🏼
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
