What? It’s Christmas Eve?

Tonight I fly across country from Sydney to Perth, to meet the BF’s family for the first time!  EKK! Will I get the house clean in time, and pack enough nice outfits for the possibly sweltering heat? (Although it’s now turned gloomy and cool here in Sydney, and I couldn’t be happier.  My morning walk was just delightful is the milder conditions). I’m debating whether I can take walking clothes for all the days we’re away, in my 7kg luggage allowance?  In any case, I’ve walked 94kms in since I started the challenge on 25 Novermber, which has taken almost 13 hours.  13 hours sounds like a lot, but it’s under the duration I should have walked to by today (13.75), but my distance is further than I predicted?!

I’m not sure what my posting schedule will be for the next week.  By January 1st, we’ll be back to normal in Sydney, and I’ll try to pick up where I left off.

Interesting, Boxing Day (26th December) will mark 1 year of blogging for me 🙂  This will mark the 224th post.  Here’s my first post ever.

I do plan to post about my 2014 goals, and maybe with some spare time this afternoon before we head to the airport I might share my lengthy and ambitious goals (or queue them up, so I don’t bombard you with lots of posts all together, and then a long silence).

I broke into the gingerbread house on Sunday – it’s delicious despite it’s few weeks on the shelf.  I think I shall make gingerbread a food group.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas, whatever they’re doing.  I look forward to hearing about it all – I hope there’s some peace and relaxation!

    1. Thanks Liz – oh my was there some food waste as I emptied the fridge for this holiday! A dead cucumber, a not dead cabbage (but it won't get eaten), some spring onions… and some cooked cherry tomatos. The shame! I'll be back before you know it.

    1. And to think, a friend just dropped around with some gingerbread stars, nicely iced. Love her for it! It's been a pleasure to have you as a reader, and I look forward to more of your inspired posts too.

      1. Thanks for the lovely comment Sarah. I've been reading all your posts even though it might appear I've been offline for awhile! I've had a breather from posting but plan to get back to it soon.

  1. Wow, I didn't know your BF was from the other side of the country! I'm sure everything will go fine. I think I have read all your posts – you've had a great blog year – Happy Blogiversary 🙂 and enjoy the holidays.

    1. He's always lived in Sydney when I've known him, but his family is in Perth. You may well have read every post – and I thank you for encouraging me to start on this blogging journey. It's been great! Enjoy your winter wonderland as we swelter.

  2. Enjoy Perth! The weather will be divine!

    You've done exceedingly well on all your challenges. Look forward to reading your next challenges. (And learning things on the way!)

  3. Sarah, congrats on your walking and I hope you have a wonderful trip. I can't believe you have only been blogging a year, what a year it's been though. 🙂

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, enjoy the visit with BF family I know they will love you.

    1. I know – it's amazing it's only been a year with so many posts! I'm glad I started it, if nothing more, as a journal of my life and where it's at. It's such a bonus to have committed readers like yourself to share it with.
