Our last Worth Casing Wednesday for 2014 as we welcome a hopefully bigger and brighter New Year.
I must confess, after my Christmas whinge fest last week (All I want for Christmas is for it to be over), I briefly found some Christmas spirit (the non alcoholic variety), only to end up on forced bed rest, which resulted in an even more low key Christmas than I had initially hinted at.
There was no over the top menu, there were no over the top gifts under the tree. There were a few last minute gifts wrapped from the home delivered grocery shopping. As you do. Miss 13 was the lucky recipient of a 2.5 kilo tub of Dijonnaise sauce. She may have been delighted.
All our usual Christmas traditions went out the window. Somehow we survived. I’m pretty sure I slept through most of Christmas and Boxing Day. My grand plans for blogging this last week, fell apart at the seams, much like me.
It was rather ironic to receive a blogger survival kit on a week where I couldn’t manage to crawl out of bed let alone think about blogging.
After a week of wondering what the heck was in the box, I finally managed to open my Christmas gift (Blogger Survival Kit) from hubby. I’m not sure Mr C’s idea of blogging survival is the same as mine. What do you think?
It certainly was a quirky gift and almost in keeping with our low key gift giving this year. That saying ‘it’s the thought that counts’ springs to mind but only in the most positive way. Mr C isn’t usually one to put a lot of thought or effort into gift giving. I know how much he hates shopping at the best of times and I really appreciate the effort he went to this year.
Considering chocolate is off limits to me, it was no surprise that Mr C quickly claimed this part of the gift for his plus one blogger duties. Apart from the chocolate, there was one other item that I wasn’t exactly thrilled with. Can you guess what it is?
I’m now the not so proud owner of selfie stick. I tend to think of them as weapons of self-destruction. I may need to set myself a challenge to use it.
Speaking of challenges, I’m planning on using the rest of my down time to actually write some New Year’s resolutions. Something completely new for me as I tend to admit defeat before I even start and give resolutions a huge miss. This year, things are going to be a tad different and that may or may not include the blog. One thing is for sure, I’m looking forward to bringing you more ‘mystery’ in 2015.
What are your plans for New Year’s Eve and will you be making any New Year’s resolutions?
Happy New Year!
