Blogmas 2021

Hello everyone! These last couple of years have been absolutely non-sensical. So, I decided that putting out a post every Monday and Thursday, as well as a poem every Friday, just was not enough to bust my restless writing brain. So, let’s make our favorite time of the year even busier, shall we?

This year I am doing 25 days of Blogmas (starting tomorrow on the 1st of December 2021)! Just to have the list somewhere, I decided to share my prompts for this festive season with you (you know how much I love listing things). Let’s see how many of these prompts I can follow and stick to. This year’s Christmas for our family is going to look a little bit different. This year, instead of doing the house up and having a home filled with the extended family, our nuclear family is going camping in Cape Agulhas (The Southernmost point in Africa) for the week preceding and following Christmas). That means that Christmas time will look a little different than other years.

So, it is up to us to make the season jolly! So, I have already started my gift-acquiring (I say this because some of the gifts I bought and others I am making myself) and gift wrapping process (I will share this with you sometime this month. Other than that, I have nothing really planned out for this Festive season. We are waiting on the next Presidential address. Then things will start rolling again on that front.


So, grab a cup of your favorite coffee (mine is Organo Gold), and let’s get right to it.
