It was a really lovely night to spend with my family and cousins before the Christmas craze kicks in. We all had a lovely relaxing night and tomorrow is Christmas Eve!!!! It is also my last day at working and seeing as today wasn’t that busy at all I have a feeling tomorrow will be super quiet! I hope you guys all had a wonderful day and now it’s time for me to get some food in my belly. Looking forward to the festive season is over as it will mean my trips with friends is that much closer and I can finally fix my unusual sleeping and eating patterns.
