Admitting something controversial

I don’t know if I should apologise or not, but I am (already) so excited about Christmas. I know, I know – it’s July. And I’ve never been one of those people who count down the days from March and puts their Christmas tree up in November, but last Christmas was an absolute washout thanks to a whole heap of health issues, so I feel like I’ve skipped a year of celebrations. If anyone else is as excited as me, I might put together a bit of a Christmassy blog post – but I know that most people are in summer-mode (even if the weather hasn’t got the memo…), enjoying BBQs and beer gardens.

Other than getting increasingly impatient for December, and wishing I could get away with a Christmas-themed birthday party in August, I’ve been thinking a lot about my work/life/blog etc. balance. I tend to treat my spare time the same way I approach my working hours – breaking down to-do lists, prioritising what I want to get done by when, and always making sure that I schedule in time to do nothing. I find that this is really important for me; prioritising the things that relax me, like watching my favourite YouTubers, reading Waitress Food and my favourite blogs, and just doing my nails, all without feeling guilty – because it’s on my to-do list. That might sound strange, but it works for me.

Are you wishing it was Christmas, too?! Or shall I just ignore it and enjoy summer? Do you have any tips for creating the perfect work/life balance?
