So, Christmas has come and gone and now it is that in between time before New Year. Everyone has had a lot to eat, nobody is properly working, and here in Cape Town it’s that hot, windy weather that makes outdoorsy stuff hard.

I am in that funny place of waiting. I want to make brave decisions and bold new plans for the new year but I am in that motionless space. And it is exactly that space that makes me not love this time of year. I thought working would help, but there hasn’t been enough work, and everyone is still in that holiday space.

Next Christmas I am going to try and be somewhere foreign and cold.
