Yes I may be on holiday but that doesn’t stop me having a Christmas To-Do List.
- Wrap Presents
- Make Salmon Mousse
- Decorate the Christmas Cake
- Read 3 books
- Run everyday
- Come up with new blog ideas
I may have wrapped my presents this morning, but that still counts right? When I woke up this morning I knew I needed to… Despite not being the best wrapper in the world, I do find it oddly therapeutic. Plus I have bought glittery wrapping paper to ensure all my family get glittery hands!
An age old tradition in the Heath household is Salmon Mousse. The recipe was shared on here awhile ago – it’s tried, tested and works. My Mum and I will be busy on Christmas Eve or Christmas Eve Eve making it.
Ah the Christmas Cake. It was baked back in October, has had booze added to it on a weekly basis. Now for decoration. I have some ideas of how I want to decorate it, but as with all things decorating they don’t always go to plan. Post Christmas I will share a blog post on how it looks.
Is there any better way of spending the long evenings, than with a book/kindle, cup of coffee/glass of wine (time dependent) and curling up on the sofa? It’s my personal idea of bliss. Does anyone have any book recommendations? Away to start Oryx and Crake. At my mental health course, we discussed being bipolar and how it affects a person, another book I am going to read is one of Stephen Fry’s autobiographies.
Marcothon is yet another running event I am taking part in. This one is slightly different, it involves running everyday during December for either 5km or 25 minutes. No excuses, just running everyday. This is easier said than done, I’ve either been running at 6:30am before work and inevitable festive nights, or late for me, either way it’s dark! There is still a few days left of the challenge, which will hopefully allow me to reach my goal of 2016km for the year. Being back up in Aberdeen is also giving me some new routes to try. Looking forward to running at the beach and on the muddy paths near my parents house!
During the last few months I have enjoyed writing this blog again. I have also started sharing it with more people in Glasgow and have been really have with the feedback. In 2017 I want to come up with some new blog posts, recipes to try etc. As well as to start gathering ideas for my next 101 in 1001.
This Christmas To-Do List was inspired by Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere after receiving a newsletter which listed what each of the employees were going to be doing. All be it they described it as Holiday Plans, being a Type A – I love a list. Even if the list itself has write new list in it! Has anyone else written a Christmas To-Do List?
