Every day has felt like Monday so far but maybe that's just because of the weather. I had quite a few odd days off in December, a weekend trip to Munich to take in the Christmas markets and a big break over Christmas, so this week has felt as tiresome as walking uphill in the rain.
Ironically, I've done that quite a few times these last few days also.
I guess I just really miss the days where all I had to worry about was could I eat a Pretzel this big without falling asleep afterwards.
I didn't as it happens but it was quite a struggle; the tea that I had with it really helped.
The Christmas markets in Munich were so pretty though. I'd planned them as a surprise for my lovely wife.
I booked all the parts of the holiday separately in the summer over a couple of months.
She didn't know where we were going right until the last minute when I gave her the flight number to enter into the ticket machine.
It had taken weeks of preparation, of dodging questions, of working out hotel rates, of converting currencies but for that split second when she saw Munich flash up on that screen, it was all worth it.
It was worth it a million times over.
The back and forth craziness of work/judging will pick up speed in a few weeks but for the time being, I'm just happy that you're happy sweetpea.
I'm happy in the knowledge that we'll always have these adventures with each other to drift away into.
Until next time
