Notes from the Weekend

& a Few Lovely Links

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 27.12.21

WOKE UP YESTERDAY morning thinking that it was Monday and thought about getting back on track after Christmas‘s excess of trifles and puddings and cava and far too much food and thought about Weekend Links and workouts. Of course, that was until I realised shortly after that it was actually Sunday, and then it was back to lounging about, a late breakfast and drinks in the evening by the fire.

And now that it is actually is Monday, it’s also actually the Christmas Bank Holiday today and the Boxing Day Bank Holiday tomorrow, so trying to get back on track is most likely futile. That being said, I did manage an half an hour of cardio for the first time in 2 weeks, as well as half a workout (only 1 set of everything). Last night I saw someone out for a run past our place (around 10:30pm) and mentioned it P, who laughed as we were having utterly decadent Christmas pudding with salted honey cream (we couldn’t fit it in on Christmas day because we were too full). He told me that it was the new thing, to try to get a head start on fitness before the new year, instead of on January 1st. It didn’t sound like a bad idea to me.

This week’s links include a wonderfully bright and eclectic British country retreat and winter whites for January days; really lovely things for your home (including a stainless steel and rattan ice bucket) and much, much more.
