In the past 2 months I’ve moved to a more accessible bungalow, driven to Poland and back for Christmas/New Year, battled a nasty virus, and delivered multiple client projects. Somehow.
When I look back it seems impossible. With each baby step, big challenges can be overcome. Apparently.
Regarding the bungalow, I’m going to write a whole post on how I made it accessible for my needs. So watch this space for my recent accessible housing news.
The trip to Poland in December was very enjoyable. The drive is getting more tiring every time Kasia and I go there. I suppose novelty is a type of fuel. However having the car and hoist is so helpful once in Miedzyrzecz, where we stay. We always have a great time, despite the hundreds of miles we cover.
I’d never spent Christmas in another country before. It was really interesting too. In Poland (and many other European countries) the main celebration is on the 24th December. We ate the 12 traditional Polish dishes including Pierogi, delicious soups, and carp. We sang Polish carols and shared great gifts.
Whilst enjoying a different cultural experience, I naturally missed my family and the British food I’m accustomed to. So Kasia’s family decided to cook turkey, stuffing, vegetables and roast potatoes with gravy on their second day of Christmas. The 25th December.
I munched through this with a big smile 🙂
