Goodbye 2019, and welcome 2020. I can’t quite believe that we’re entering a new decade. It’s all a bit bizarre. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful festive holiday and that you’re welcoming in 2020 with a smile on your face.
December has well and truly come and gone, and with the feasting and merriment comes a time of reflection and aspirations for the new year. I, on the other hand, feel like I need a holiday to recover from the holiday. Christmas was a relaxed event, but over the festive period, you tend to get a lot of visitors, meaning you never really stop playing host. Now, it’s back to the daily grind of work, and the festive period went by so fast it doesn’t even feel like we’ve entered a new year, let alone a new decade.
Nevertheless, Christmas gave me a chance to catch some films and indulge in the internet’s latest obsession, The Witcher. I’m already adding it to my ‘best of 2019’ list because it was such a fun show to watch. The fantasy elements are so well done, the banter between certain characters is brilliant, and there is so much potential in this franchise. So, if you haven’t done so already, go watch The Witcher, even if it’s just to listen to Jaskier’s wonderful songs.
As you can see, I didn’t get a lot of reading done. I am still making my way through ‘Beartown,’ and I’m already in love with the book. It’s beautifully written, emotional, and a book I would urge everyone to read.
On the blog, I took to spotlighting a lot of movies I’ve been watching, with a special emphasis on all the adorable Christmas films available. Hopefully, in January I can maintain a consistent flow of content. This is what I got up to in December
TV & Film
15th: Midnight Movies – Christmas Special

Admittedly, I’ve not thought much about resolutions or goals for 2020. I find that resolutions put more pressure on you, or I forget what they were. Besides, most plans or I make get completely derailed so I’m just going to see where the month takes me, ease my way into the new year with a positive attitude, and possibly finish a book.
