I absolutely love this time of the year, it is just too much fun. The food is heaven, the home is cosier, the clothes are full of glitter and sparkle and the music is louder! Everything about this time pf year fills me with joy whether that would be sprinkling cinnamon onto each and every hot drink or even battling the shops.
Despite 2020 being such a dreadful year for everyone, pretty much everyone has put their Christmas tree's up early, the lights outside make everyone feel so festive, the shops re opened beginning of the month and on Saturday night (19th December) the South were all going into Tier 4 which is absolutely heartbreaking that people cannot go and spend time with their loved ones. I am grateful to be in the North where I can spend Christmas with my family. My heart goes out to everyone who are struggling and cannot be with their loved ones, normally Christmas is the most exciting time of the year for a lot of people. It is just too much fun, the food is naughtier, the home is cosier, the clothes are sparkles and the music is louder! Everything about this time of year fills me with joy, the Christmas markets, the Christmas parties, heading to the pub, eating out, being able to be with your family and friends. Unfortunately that isn’t the case this year and it is very sad that we cannot have work Christmas parties, being able to look around the markets, seeing the lights, Carol singing. We have to be grateful for the year we have had, it has been a challenging year for everyone in their own different ways, it’s been a year that has made me realise to appreciate everything! The simple things that you take for granted like being about to go into town, eating out with friends, family and going on holiday! The precious things which got taken away, told to stay inside, work from home if we could (I did at the beginning for a bit), not able to mix with others unless they were in your household / bubble. We have to appreciate we are still here, still living and to remember we are all in this together! It is not over yet, it is going to take a while for people to be vaccinated, for being to go on holiday as the cases are rising, people are unwell. All it takes for people to wash hands properly and keep your distance from others! The virus will be here with us forever but we need to be able to manage it and I definitely think it will be better once people are all vaccinated. You never know hopefully one day we can go to gigs, get our hair done and head to the shops without wearing masks!
As 2020 ends, I am thankful for being a part of the NHS, having a job yes I would have loved to have changed jobs but it was too risky to not. Let’s hope 2021 is that year as I will be 29 which is just too scary to even process! Grateful that whilst I was working through lockdown I started making IGTV’s and reels! Would love to start a YouTube channel but it’s thinking what content I can create that is different and 2020 was the year I started buying Saturday by Megan Ellaby clothes and been lucky enough to have been featured on their Instagram a few times!
Sending lots of love to everyone! Let’s up this time next year things will be a little bit better!
