|Looking out to the Irish Sea at Kilkeel Harbour|
Not being one for Resolutions I did manage to get back to the gym yesterday - don't be too impressed, it's a programme with a Physio called Over To You with the idea that 8 weeks under supervision will kick start a lifelong desire to get physical again ... hmmmm we'll see. But on my way back, I drove past the harbour at Kilkeel and the sea looked so calm and quiet and empty. (Kilkeel is the main fishing port on this coast). Only a few boats on the distant horizon. On one hand it's such a soothing thing to look at, a calm sea, but the emptiness reflected that sense of calm before the storm that I always get after a busy fun period when work looms around the corner and you never feel ready.
Today we take down the decorations and the tree instead of waiting for the 6th as I like to do, but we're out all day tomorrow and much and all as I love my tree I want a clear house for Monday. It's always in my mind to tidy my desk and do all the filing before New Year's Day, but this year none of it happened and my desk is the usual midden that it normally is... Perhaps today, or maybe it'll just have to wait!
However, there might be time(if I can summon up the energy) to go through Chrissie presents there's not been time to explore - in fact there's a couple of birthday ones as well that I want some time with. Maybe book a facial, or organise a date for a pottery class ... Yummy things to look forward to:)
How about you? Have you had time to play with your presents yet? Or do you delay the gratification like me?
Have a nice weekend.
