It is Christmas Eve and Ali and I have arrived at his parents' place where we will enjoy dinner this evening, stay the night and wake up early like crazy kids on Christmas morning.
Christmas is all about family to us; its a chance to deck out the house in tinsel, have some holidays, chill out and spoil eachother rotten.
I was out doing some last minute shopping with my sister yesterday and we were talking about how whenever we think we're having a rough time or are tempted to complain- that we should think of those less fortunate and be grateful for what we have. Christmas is a great time for this and to give a little extra to hard working charities. I know I am extremely grateful for my family and friends, my health, my home, career and the opportunity to study. We are also all so lucky to live in such a beautiful country!
Today was our last training session before we take 8 days off the gym. I am already looking forward to smashing these muscles again in the New Year :) As for now, I have a whole heap of lovely fresh prawns, salad and mangoes to get through, mmmm.
Wishing you all a MERRY AND SAFE CHRISTMAS!!!! I hope you are doing whatever you love best with those you love.
