Lazy Days In Between

After a whirlwind three days of food, drink, good company and merry making at last I have a day to myself.  A lazy day.  A lazy day of doing what I want when I want.  My kind of day.

Now the festivities are winding down I am looking towards 2016.  I know that I have a very busy year ahead of me.  This is not a year for me to stay in the shadows.  This year I need to get moving forward in many areas of my life and so bearing that in mind I have chosen the word ADVANCE as my word for 2016.  I like to choose a word to focus on each year as it keeps me on track to achieve the goals I have set for myself. 

I hope that you are all well in this strange 'in between' Christmas and the new year period.  I am going to have a quiet day of flicking through some TV channels, reading the paper and maybe snoozing for a while too.

I look forward to catching up with all your blogs very soon.


  1. I am about to begin painting the bathroom! A job that's been being put off for such a long time and so now that we have had our quiet days over Christmas itself (not a lot of merry making went on here!) Mr M is sticking down the masking tape and I will then weild the paintbrush. Most of the room is tiled so it shouldn't be too arduous! Enjoy your free time doing as you wish - take a leaf out of your lovely cat's book - he obviously knows how to relax. Let's all attempt to Advance in 2016 in whatever way seems tight for each of us.

  2. Now that is am excellent word ADVANCE! We had a quiet Christmas, and we will have a quiet new year, but we like it that way. So Advance into 2016 with a smile

  3. Nice to have a focus for the year ahead and lovely to have a few days of quiet before 2016 begins.
    Mya and Dovey send their love to Gizmo… so nice to see him looking so comfortable.
    purrs and hugs all around, Simone.

  4. I have to admit to not really liking the in between days, I want a bright shiny new year and Spring, I'm done with Christmas now!
    Great word Simone!

  6. Glad you are enjoying your gentle in between days, Simone. I wish you all the best for 2016 and your Advance into the new year. Take carexx:)

  7. What a fantastic word to focus on in a year you know is going to be busy... I can't wait to read along and see what you get up to :)

  8. What a perfect word, Simone!

    Wishing you all the best for 2016!! Enjoy the in-between. I like to think of it as a time for resting, rejuvenating and dreaming about what comes next.

  9. I love this week "in between", Simone - a time for being quiet and rest before the New Year. Your photo of Gizmo is wonderful - what a beauty he is! And what a great word you've chosen for 2016. May you "advance" in everything you attempt in the New Year! xx

  10. Gizmo looks like he's enjoying these lazy days too.
    Happy New Year to you and your family.
