Working in retail means that I don’t really have a lot of time off around Christmas and New Year. I have to admit I’m quite lucky this year, I have managed to get 6 days off between the two holidays, but not everyone is as fortunate as me.
My boyfriend is actually working Christmas Day which means I shall be spending part of my day on my own. We’ve decided to have our Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve evening (it will be the first ever Christmas dinner I’ve made so please wish me luck haha) and then Christmas morning were going to exchange presents and when he goes to work I’m going to slouch in my sofa and surround myself with chocolate and watch Christmas films. Absolutely perfect for me. Boxing Day I’m probably going to do the same and spend most of my day going through the Boxing Day sales online, then on the 27th our plan is to do a little bit of shopping. If I’m honest, whatever we do will be great as we’re finally spending the whole day together.
My sister is then planning on coming down to mine for a few days after Christmas so we’re going to have a mini Christmas together. We’re then heading to my parents who live in Wiltshire for New Years for a quiet one.
I’m really looking forward to just having some time off work to relax and eat lots of yummy food and really just to spend some time with my family. What are your plans for Christmas and New Year? Are you having a quiet one too or are you going to be very busy? Hope it’s fun whatever you’re doing.
