We are in the middle of all the festivities weeks of the month December. Did you have a wonderful Christmas? And are you looking forward to saying goodbye to 2020 and welcoming the new year? I always find the day after January 1st such a downer. Everything is over then. What about those boring months? January and February. But hey, we are now used to boring months aren’t we.
What have we done in this festivity week
The beginning of the week was still a bit busy with arranging all kinds of things. Administrative things, things that do not run smoothly and that linger too long. I hate that. I want to be able to check things off. But on Thursday the time had finally come. Gerben was still late from work, but once at home we could celebrate the start of the holidays. Gerben has days off until January 4th.
In the evening we made a delicious fish salad and eaten comfortably on the couch in front of the telly, with a bottle of rosé. On Christmas Day, no one came and we didn’t go anywhere. Had a long breakfast and unpacked the presents. I got earrings and a book that I had selected myself. Normally we go shopping for original presents. Gerben received a barbeque book and a meat thermometer.
With all these festivities comes a lot of food
And now he is still in need of the barbeque! That’s one of those things that stay put for too long. We have already ordered a barbeque three times and then it says on the site that they have it in stock, and then they don’t have it. And then you receive an email afterwards that it will come in February. Yes bye, so canceled again, wait for your money back and order somewhere else. Now he buys one in the shop when they reopen.
In the evening we made a delicious menu for the two of us which we really enjoyed. On the second Christmas day we went to see my father and his wife. That was also very cozy and again we had a delicious meal. That were the festivities for this week. Sunday was another relaxed day, sat inside all day because it really stormed outside. I started to read the booklet of the new car, otherwise I don’t know how everything works in a year’s time. We ate pizza, fresh and homemade of course, with a lot of vegetables. Wasn’t even that hungry! How was your festivity week?
I wish you all a happy New Year’s Eve and all the best for the new year. On New Year’s Day the Fancy Friday linkup party will be open ……..sorry about last week.
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
