Have Yourself A Very Merry Christmas

Just a quick note from me to say I’m now signing off until the New Year.

 photo Christmas 2016 18_zpsn3lze10m.jpgIf I’m honest, the last month or so has exhausted me. I’ve been emotional and teary, and quite frankly a joy to live with. I’ve tried to do far too much, overworked myself in my career, my study, my blog. I’ve set the bar for myself too high and the beaten myself up when I ‘failed.’

I desperately need to recharge my batteries.

I have a whole fortnight off work. I’ve cut down the studying I planned to do (see, too much of a control freak to let myself have proper time off!). I’ve swiped my blog schedule clean. As of 1pm on Friday I’m officially out of the office, and will at least reserve a few days for total rest and relaxation.

So to all my lovely readers, have an absolutely lovely Christmas, a very merry New Year, and I will see you (hopefully refreshed and replenished!) in 2017! x

  • I hope you have a merry Christmas and happy new year! Take some well earned rest šŸ™‚ x

    Merry Christmas! It’s so great you’re fully switching off from everything – I think everyone needs to once in a while!

  • Sounds brilliant- I am planning a break from my blog too. Having blogged pretty solidly for the last year or so a break is needed I think! Have a wonderful Christmas x

  • Merry Christmas and I hope you enjoy a well-earned break! xx

  • Enjoy that well deserved break – get loads of rest and eat ALL the food! Merry Christmas to you x
