Holiday Planning & Headache…

なかなか決まらなかった今年のメインホリデーの行き先がスコットランドと決まり(6月に行きます)、2月末か3月に妹と弟とどこか行こうかと言う話が持ち上がり、3月に夫とちょこっと日本で温泉に行こうという話もしていて、調べることが多すぎて、寝不足と検索のし過ぎで今朝は頭痛が酷くしばらく起きれず。。。痛み止めを飲んで寝て遅い時間(3時ごろ)にやっとよくなりました。検索ばかりしているとこうなるとわかっていても、主要なところが決まらないと落ち着きません。3月の温泉旅行はもちろんのこと、6月のスコットランドもホテルなどかなり埋まってしまっていて、早く決めて予約しないと泊まりたいところに泊まれない!スコットランドの主なところはやっと決まりましたが、あとはまだ。焦っています。

We finally decided to go to Scotland for our main holiday this year a little while ago – we’ll go there in June, and my sister, brother and I are talking about having a short trip to Taiwan.  My husband and I are also thinking about having a short trip in Japan to a hot-spring as well.  So, with all these trips coming up, I’ve been spending hours a day for the last few weeks trying to find “the perfect” places to stay.  Well, I know there is no such a thing but as close to perfect as possible, that is, at least on the internet…  finally booked a couple of places in Scotland but there’s still lots to do.  People say we plan so far ahead but obviously there are many people who start planning earlier than us as I found lots of places are getting booked up for all these trips and I’m getting quite anxious!

Anyway, as I’ve been spending so many hours on the computer (I always do but I don’t usually have to concentrate so much if I’m just watching some videos) and sleeping less, the inevitable happened  – had a terrible headache this morning when I woke up.  I had to take some painkillers and try to sleep it off.  It eventually went but it was about 3.00pm by the time I could get up.

タイに行った12月23日から2週間もほとんどお料理をしていないので、昨日まではなかなかお料理気分になれませんでした。今日はいい加減にちゃんとして(しばらくお肉類が続いていたので)少しは体に良さそうなものを作ろうと思っていたのですが、そんな事情で簡単なものになりました。夫が好きなチリ・コンカーニ。

Since we left for Thailand on the 23rd, I’ve hardly cooked anything so I was planning to cook something healthy today, but I just didn’t have time or energy after such a headache to think or cook properly so ended up cooking Chilli Con Carne. My husband loves it and it’s easy.

明日ツリーを撮りに来るので飾りを片付けてしまい、裸のツリーが寂しい感じになっています。クリスマスの飾りがなくなると、すっきりしたような、寂しいような。。。

Tomorrow, the flower shop people will come and take our Christmas tree away, so it is looking bare now.  When we take all the Christmas decorations down, the living/dining room looks sort of tidy but a bit bare…
