Yesterday I couldn’t write anything because I was for the whole day out due to some stuff that had to be done before Christmas holidays. When I came home at midnight I was drained….and also literally, cause I had had to cope with a lot of stress to solve the connections troubles of a water treatment plant….
Spanish people aren’t farsighted at all, and we wait for till a few days before Christmas Eve to do all the Christmas shopping. If three weeks ago it was crazy to go to a shopping centre in the ‘rush hour’, now it’s a completely madness just to try it. You will get exasperated after doing long queues, or after being looking for a car park for more than ten minutes. I look around and what I find out is that people seem to be under great stress. Surprisingly, during this time of the year a lot of people get irascible and for them holidays doesn’t necessarily mean being relaxed, peaceful and enjoying of one’s family. Well, I told you about that in another post. But I’d like people don’t bother so much about gifts….which nowadays are linked with money. I ask myself why people don’t even try to be creative and imaginative, giving out their feelings, and their way of seeing the life.
For example, if you don’t have much time it’s a good idea to do personalized Christmas cards. If you aren’t good at drawing, you can do a collage, or even use a photo software editor to retouch some pictures to create cards.
For me, what is extremely difficult is to express my feelings by writing. In every Christmas card I like to write all the good things that the addressee of it has for me, to show off how highly I think of that friend or relative. However, organizing ideas isn't easy at all. By the way, do you have any special gift for any special person?
As a Spanish girl, I’m now doing all my cards! This year I’ll send a photo of my niece to all relatives. To my friends, I’ll do something funnier…..but I’m thinking about what I can do to surprise them….
Jonathan, I’m ok by now! But I’ve had some troubles. First, I was ill for a couples of days. For that reason I had to get up to date with my work, and I came home too late at night….exhausted after long days working out. Also, it’s the run-up of Christmas, and I’ve had to do a lot of stuff to be Christmas-ready (cleaning, buying what we’ll have dinner, helping my mum and granny,etc) :)
I like getting to know more about Poland, its places and culture. For what you've told about, Krakow is a place that has a lot of charm. Your photos are great....Photo taking is an art form that I'd like to learn. I think that the first step will be taking my camera wherever I am, to get what to express when it happens. That moment usually lasts just a few seconds. For example, a child smiling, a daybreak, people expressions, and so on.
Thanks to everyone for worrying about me. I’m fine, and I’ll blog again regularly, as I used to do..... You know you’re wonderful!
I'd like to show you one of the pictures that I’ve taken of my niece (dressed like a little shepherd). She’s the sweetest child I've ever seen, isn’t she?.
See you tomorrow,….and believe me, it’s true!
