We’re on the downhill slope everyone! It’s so nearly time before we can wave a merry goodbye to 2016 and pray fervently for a better 2017. Anyway, I’m off on holiday today and I’ve officially clocked off from 2016. So I thought I’d share the stream of consciousness from my wrung out, strung out, end of year brain. You’re welcome.
~ Jen is an absolute legend. This lady took time out of her busy life (she has an adorable new daughter, plus studying for a masters, not to mention training for all sorts of epic marathons and such) to act as my very own US based forwarding service. Long story short thanks to Jen I now have a brand new Fitbit and I’m SO HAPPY with it. I can’t believe how kind she’s been to me and it just goes to show, you really can meet genuinely nice, friendly people through blogging. Not everyone on the internet is a weirdo or out for personal gain. Once again, thank you so much Jen!
No thanks to Delta who are annoyingly incompetent. That’s all I say on the matter.
~ I wrote a thing for Amtrak! I’m going to take a minute to be proud of myself because I think that’s underrated these days. You can read it here.
Do you think it still sounds like me? They edited it a bit because, y’know, their blog is a little more corporate than mine. Also more American. What do you reckon?
~ It’s frighteningly close to Christmas. 3 days? What?
~ Speaking of Christmas, we’re doing something a little different this year and travelling on Christmas morning. The theory is that everyone will be too busy opening presents and putting their turkeys in the oven to be out on the roads, but we shall see. Travelling at Christmas is always a pain so anything less than that I’ll count as a win!
~ I’m now replying to all my comments via email. I wasn’t sure people received my replies (I don’t always when I comment on others using the inbuilt WordPress comment system) and also it’s nice to have a chat offline. What do you think? Do you reply to comments via email? Any general opinions thereof?
~ I think next door have a new dog (or maybe they’re just dogsitting for a reeeally long time?) and it’s a barker. Such a barker. We share a wall down the entire of our house with them and can hear what goes on in their house quite well – kids being yelled down for dinner, the husband singing opera to himself, the usual – but this is a bit much. I’d go and say something but we’re only here for a couple of months more 🙂
Have you clocked out of the year yet? Any annoying pet neighbour stories to share?
