I realise I'm a day late, but Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone reading this had a lovely day yesterday.
Sorry that I haven't posted for the last couple of days, but I've been a fair bit busier than I anticipated. Only I could underestimate the business of Christmas. I did manage to get my Christmas shopping done for everyone I was seeing on Christmas Day, now I just have to get stuff for those im seeing at New Year.
Apart from the shopping I'm not quite sure what I was busy doing. I guess I helped my Dad at work a little and tried to catch up with some of my friends but the time just seem to fly by.
Christmas Day was a huge success. I usually just work with my Dad, but this year I went to the Boyfriend's house. I get really grumpy and miserable at Christmas because selfishly it makes me really sad seeing everyone with their huge families when mine has got pretty small over the last few years. This year I didn't get too much like that. In fact I had a really nice day. Got up early and the boyfriend and I had breakfast with my Dad and we swapped presents. I got a SatNav... so no more getting lost for me. I saved up this year and got my Dad a digital SLR because he's been generally amazing and really helped me out financially. Then I spent the whole day at the boyfriend's Mum's house with all of his family. I was so nervous even though I go around there loads but I had no reason to be, it was lovely. Then in the evening we went back to my Dad's to watch Shrek the Halls and Cool Runnings. The perfect end to a lovely day.
Now I have to really knuckle down and get some work done before New Year. Lots of practicing examinations and reading up on stuff for my next rotation. If only the holidays were really a fortnight off and not a fortnight of working hard away from uni. *sigh*.
