Personal Tuesday

My week has been busy and I feel much better. I am planning Christmas in Germany, even though I don’t like Christmas. When I was a child, I loved Christmas. Now, many years past my milk teeth covered in Christmas candy, I am less fond of Christmas. In fact, I don’t like celebrating Christmas at all. I don’t know why, but I guess it’s because I dislike winter in general. The cold, the snow and the short days. Yes, I associate Christmas with winter and snow, cold fingers and frozen toes. The boys, especially George, will be in Christmas mood though, and I will probably end up baking lots and lots of German Christmas biscuits and sharing them with all our friends.

But for various reasons, I have decided not to book a holiday somewhere sunny and hot, but spend two weeks in Germany to catch up with friends. So, here we go: I dislike Germany and I dislike Christmas. The two together? Oh no. Anyway, I am currently trying to see at which hotels I like to stay and when exactly I will be where.

On the other hand, though I am planning a Christmas Party for Bloggers in London on the 29th of November. So maybe I don’t hate Christmas that much after all? Planning this Meetup keeps me busy and I am looking forward to meet many other Bloggers.

Tomorrow I am heading off to the Tower Bridge Studios for a photo shooting. It is a ‘before’ shooting for a ten week diet and exercise feature in a big national newspaper. I am super excited. There is a team that does my hair, my makeup and dresses me and I can’t wait. I will tell you all about it tomorrow.

    I happen to like Christmas a lot – I never realised how much it meant to me until I lived in Japan and had no Christmas at all for 3 years. I loved the Christmas market in Frankfurt, drinking feuerzangenbowle with my friends and eating overpriced crap haha.
    I can't believe you're doing a diet thing! You're already tiny! I hope you have fun, though!
