We had a week or so of cold weather, with a very light snowfall, but apart from that it has been quite mild. A couple of days I've even been out in my t-shirt.
But for some odd reason it just doesn't feel like Christmas. I don't know why this should be. Perhaps it's because I've hardly been in town, especially when the lights have been on. But we have our tree up, our cards on display, our decorations and so on. But I just don't feel Christmassy yet.
I have, against my better judgement, bought a Christmas jumper. I always vowed I wouldn't, but it is a thing here. Maybe I'm acclimatising in more way than one.
I'm looking forward to the Christmas break. I hope to have a relaxing time. To refresh, recharge and renew.
Here's to a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
