HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE friends!! I am feeling so Christmassy right now! I did some panic shopping yesterday since I hadn’t bought a single present or card for my family at that point…! Procrastination is a talent of mine;) By some miracle I managed to get it all done, so now all that’s left to do is the wrapping and preparing tomorrow’s lunch! Here’s a sneak preview of the dessert I’m planning on making and veganising…
obviously my version will look that perfect too… (photo source)
This past week has been insanely busy, but in the best way! I’ve been out every night since last Monday, so now I am completely SHATTERED and relying on caffeine to keep me awake! After a stressful last couple of months, being able to completely relax and go out with friends is so great!
at Ping Pong in London. a stranger said in passing that we looked like sisters! not quite sure how they came to that conclusion…!
evening at a Mexican bar/restaurant…love the free sombrero
lots of cocktail times:)
Every Christmas some friends and I go to a carol service and then come back to mine to eat Christmassy food and watch Love Actually. It’s one of my favourite traditions, and Love Actually will never get old, no matter how many times I see it!
I’ve been to a record five carol services this week too! I’ve played in or been a singer in four of them, and yesterday’s was the first one I’d been an audience participant for, which was nice. Nothing makes me feel more Christmassy than carols:
My Christmas Eve morning started off bright and early with a team training session. It was the most fun session EVER, done relay-style with crackers instead of batons and whilst wearing santa hats:)
We sang Christmas songs on our warm-up (admittedly by “we” I mean I did…on my own…), exchanged cards and gave out our Secret Santa presents. Our coach also got us all presents bless him, and I can’t wait to open it tomorrow!
When I got home I stretched and foam rolled whilst watching Love Actually…again! I know that movie word for word.
I’m off to the gym now to get in a bit of cross-training, and then home to get started on making the vegetarian/vegan offerings for tomorrow!
What are your Christmas Day plans? Morning run, church and Christmas lunch with all the family!
What are you having for your Christmas meal? I’m making two main courses and a dessert to contribute to the meal, all of which are vegan of course! I’ve never made them before so I’m hoping they aren’t a complete disaster!
Are you getting in a run/exercise tomorrow, or resting? I can’t imagine starting my Christmas morning without doing the thing I love most! I’ll be getting in a few easy miles before presents and church:)
Have a GREAT Christmas everyone!! <3
