Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share one in the comments. It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad!
This week I have chosen the word Preparing
Over the last few days I have spent a lot of time preparing for upcoming days and events. Firstly, my best friend is coming to visit this weekend. I’m sooooo looking forward to it as we haven’t seen each other in a good while now. It does mean that I have to clean the house top to bottom though. Is anyone else like that? Yes I clean my house weekly, but when I have guests coming to stay all of a sudden it’s like the queen is coming or something. I suppose I just want to make the place nice and homely for them which isn’t a bad thing.
Christmas is flying towards us at the speed of light it seems, so I’ve been preparing for that too! Most gifts are now bought or at the very least planned and I think I have enough wrapping paper left over from last year so that saves me a trip out to the shops. We also picked up our Christmas cards a few weeks ago, so I might start writing those soon, or at the very least compile addresses which I mean to do ever year and then forget! All plans have been made with regards to catching up with friends when I go back home for a few days and even our hogmanay (new years eve for any non scottish folk that don’t say funny words like hogmanay) tickets are booked.
For the long term, I’ve also been doing a bit more preparation for our wedding in Spring next year. Just small things at the moment, like getting invitations ready to go and figuring out how I’d like my make-up to be done. Everyone says this I’m sure, but I could swear we had 12 full months to go last week…now we’re down to 6. Eek!
