“Jingle bells jingle bells jingle all the way…” What better way to get in the Christmas spirit than with Christmas carols?
Streaming movies, decorating Christmas trees and spending time with family and friends. It’s practically the best time of the year. Time to evaluate your year’s resolutions. What you’ve accomplished, what you’re working on, activities you’ve done from your bucket list, activities you’ve chickened out on, friends you lost in touch with, the new friends you made just to mention but a few.
Every year few days before my birthday I get all wishy washy about my birthday. Should I go out for lunch, dinner or a night out? Should I stay in binge watch my favourite series? Should I get a new dress? Should I go alone? Should I go get my hair, makeup and nails done? Should I book for a photoshoot? Should I …? Should I..?Should I…?
The D–day finally comes and I’m rushing everywhere, trying to get everything done. I call Alicia so that she squeezes me into her busy schedule because I’m now certain I need a 2kg cocopine cake with orange wheels and berries for toppings.
