I’m blogging from my phone! Never actually done that before. Seems sort of fun though. I usually put loads of thought and time into blog posts but I’m not sure if it shows so there’s no harm in just bashing one out, is there?
I haven’t been very active on social media over the festive period because I don’t really care about Christmas or other people. Bah. I had a nice time and some great gifts but I’m ready to go home now and try and make some new changes and some fresh starts. I’m not doing any resolutions as such because I know that I won’t stick to them and everything is going to change, with a new addition to our little family and new opportunities that might come my way. I’m focusing more on self care things – taking care of myself, nourishing my body and mind, doing little things like getting new pillows and exploring new recipes and types of baking.
Nothing is the same right now as it was this time last year, and I know nothing will be the same at all next year either. My plan is to spend Christmas at home next year for the first time ever and I won’t be able to visit Blessington Lakes in Co. Wicklow where my aunt and uncle live. I went there yesterday and it is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. One of those places that makes you forget about life and take a new perspective on the world. I wish I had stayed there longer and taken some more photos but part of me thought if I stayed longer I would never want to leave. It is an introverts dream down there.
Update: apparently this lake is a man made lake that was made by people flooding a whole village. Every time someone dies in the lake, people say it’s cursed. This is probably why I like it.
