Do you normally have a set plan for Christmas every year? Ever since I moved to New Zealand, Christmas has ended up to be a slightly disorganised affair. By that I mean, we never have real plans. At least, not like we used to back in the Philippines, where we usually spent Christmas Day with our entire family.
Since my mother and I live 4 hours away from our only relatives in New Zealand, it's not really convenient for either family to come visit. This year though, we'll be seeing them just a few days after Christmas. I haven't seen my cousin's son in a few years, so I'm looking forward to seeing how big he's grown. Last time I saw him, he was only learning to crawl!
I'm quite excited, since I get roughly a month off work. It's the first time in 10 years that I'm not working in retail during Christmas! It still hasn't quite sunk in yet. I've been excitedly writing things I want to do, mentally noting which books I want to read during my time off, and which crafts on Pinterest I want to work on. 15 days to go until my first taste of retail-free freedom!
Do you get time off this year? How are you planning on spending it?
