It’s Friday and I haven’t been at work. The whole school has had a well-earned day off and I have relished in it. I woke up in Stockport after going to the Manchester Christmas Markets last night (which were amazing btw and the hot chocolate and Baileys was omg amazing) at a reasonable hour and enjoyed a wonderful morning of catching up on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and omelettes. Then we caught the train back to York and are planning on pigging out on a takeaway tonight. I can’t say enough how much this day means to me, just to chill out and relax, to not be that stressed or tired and to enjoy myself. Full time work has hit me hard and I’m struggling more than I thought I would, particularly with how much energy I have. After living a care free life at uni, the world of work has shocked me and I don’t like it.
But that’s why today has been so amazing. I don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a Friday so much. And that’s the thing. You don’t enjoy or appreciate each day if you’re doing nothing in between lectures or don’t have a job but when you do have a day off, it’s the most wonderful thing you can experience ever.
And that’s why I’m so happy, sitting here in my wooly poncho, watching How I Met Your Mother feeling the happiest girl in the world. And tomorrow? Tomorrow I’m going to Leeds to meet my mum to do some Christmas shopping and I am so, so, so excited. Christmastime is here and I adore it.
