We're at the end of our second week off and it's been bliss. If you ignore the fact that we've both got the dreaded lurgy - Mr M has now gone down with my nasty from week one, and I've picked up something new which has somewhat knocked me sideways. Our grand plans have given way to very late starts, Star Wars and glasses of fizzy Solpadeine. On the plus side, it has meant that we haven't gorged ourselves so the jeans are feeling a little looser.
Snot aside, we've had a lovely Christmas. Family get-togethers, great presents and homemade grub - Mr M's amazing first festive ham was a particular highlight, with the squash stuffed with leftover pigs in blankets and devils on horseback a close second. Nom nom.
This year has been a tad higgledy piggledy. Here's to 2012 being back on schedule. Keeping it simple. Spending time with those who matter. Learning new things. Catching a breath.
