December 2018

I feel like I blinked and it’s December. I’m sure the school year just started and now we’re winding down for the end of the Autumn semester and into the Christmas recess. I’m not going to lie though, I’m thrilled. I love December. I love Christmas and it’s my birthday – not that anyone1 really remembers it, it’s in that awkward period between Christmas and New Year where it feels like you’ve fallen into a fissure in the space time continuum.

I’m very much looking forward to a couple of weeks of no classes, no students and spending quality time with Jack and Lucy. We’ve got no solid plans other than going to see Aquaman, and a board games afternoon. I’d like to get in some yoga and zumba classes at the gym as well.

Also, in December, I’m going to two Cardiff Blues matches – on the 15th and 21st. I don’t get to go to actual matches in person often enough so I’m looking forward to that.

I’m sure other plans will fall into place as the month goes on. Mostly, though, I’m looking forward to relaxing with my family and enjoying the festive season

1 Jack, Lucy, Dad and my brother remember. Sometimes my niece and nephew too, although somehow they manage to forget that their father and I are twins and share a birthday…
