Yesterday evening, D and I went to a friend’s winter garden party which was about 40 minutes drive away. We met some friends, ate hot dogs and had a couple of drinks. We got home after 1am, and went to bed at around 2am.
After 6.5 hours of sleep, I woke up and could not get back to sleep anymore even if my life would have depended on it! Damn, I can never sleep in like normal people…
I got up from bed, drank my coffee while thinking I might need a couple more if I am to survive this day. Surprisingly, I went about my Sunday errands without feeling tired.
In the afternoon, we went to Kortrijk to check out its Christmas Market and koopzondag (special Sundays where shops are open for business). We did not purchase one single thing, nor did we stop for drinks at the many cafés we walked by. Well, I guess being amongst people was sufficient fun for us. One other reason is that D’s family do not celebrate Christmas, so there was no need for any frantic shopping and annoying shuffling at shop counters. Thank goodness!
