Sorry I’ve been so quiet over the Christmas period. We had a very hectic 3 weeks.
Firstly, we went to Northern Ireland to visit Christopher’s family. We hired a car at Belfast city airport as we have previously done.
It got to Christmas day and some parts were different to normal. We had broth as normal at Granny’s house. Later on went to his sister’s house, both of these were on Christmas day.
It got to December 28th and we had to drive to Belfast to fly to Leeds/Bradford airport to go to my parent’s house.
We got there and rested a wee while having tea and seeing people. Then we got more presents, yay!
My best present was from Christopher, he got me Blink 182 tickets. My first reaction to that was crying! Yes that’s right I cried. 😢 That soon passed.
When it got to New Years Eve we decided as a family we should have a Christmas dinner. I made soup as my dad had got a soup machine and I wanted to play. I had obviously looked on Pinterest for recipes. The one I ended up making was Sweet Potato and Carrot soup. I obviously needed some help as my MS decides when I can do things like peeling vegetables. It turned out really nice.
The rest of the evening was spent lounging about drinking (not me due to medication)
The next day we carried on resting even though we were still doing lots.
We came home back to Leiden on 5th January. We decided that as we hadn’t walked as much as normal whilst we were away we should try and get 10,000 steps per day done as much as possible.
The above are this week’s and last weekends steps.
The above is the first week back’s weeks steps, back in the routine if not a bit too much.
I know it sounds a bit weird that I’m saying walking is relaxing, well I find it is. You don’t think about things as you go along. I’m enjoying getting to my 10,000 every day as it’s roughly 5 miles.
I challenge you to do it.
