I know, I know… It is already the 11th of January, which means that we are truly into 2016 already and this is me now wishing you a happy New Year! A bit late, you say? Timing??? I seem to have no timing what-so-ever lately.
Christmas was amazing but insanely busy and although we are back from Spain a week already and pretty much settled into the school/work/miscellaneous routine, my head is still spinning.
I was so organised in December. I had great posts scheduled, presents bought, dinners organised… and then one day I woke up and I decided to change every room in the upstairs part of my house. 4 beds had to be taken apart and re-assembled in different rooms, furniture moved… Then we decided to go to Spain for Christmas at the last minute but I realized my passport had expired, so after running around like a headless chicken calling myself every name under the sun, I had to drive to Dublin to beg and cry in the Spanish Embassy to try to get it renewed in time. I worked. We left our house with 4 slightly upside-down rooms to go to Spain to have a fabulous Christmas with all my family (there was 40 of us on Christmas day and there was still people missing!) but there was trouble with the airline and we got to Bilbao a day later than planner (on the 24th!) and without the boy’s suitcase which meant we had to run to the shop to buy clothes for them for at least the following couple of days.
Oh, yeah! and I signed up for 2 online courses that I am trying to finish before my evening courses start. I am either very smart or very stupid… nope, no need to answer that one…
Anyway, you get the general chaotic feeling. It has been an amazing Christmas full of family, food and joy and also quite a bit of stress so that is why I haven’t been online lately.
I am hoping to get my study finished this week so not only I will be able to show it to you, but also I will be able to write at a desk in a calm room not surrounded by boxes.
I am trying to stay calm in the midst of the chaos, stay focus and mindful. It will get done, it will be ok.
How was your break? Is it too far in the past that you have already forgotten about it?
