Boxing Day and Leaky Pipes!

It’s Boxing Day here in the the UK, and I’m pretty sure nobody really knows why it’s still called that, but I guess any excuse to push deals at consumers is good enough, right? Regardless, my husband and I slept in for as long as we could and have spent the day hanging around the flat watching Netflix. It’s been pretty boring, really.

At one point we did venture out to the opposite end of town to go to the only grocery store open on Boxing Day, and we came back with lettuce and peppers and a bag of Doritos for dinner. It was so cold on the way there that I wondered if my ears were going to turn to ice! I’m glad I got out of the house today, even if it was freezing outside.

In other news, the upstairs neighbor’s pipe is leaking on our bathroom ceiling again, and just after I was beginning to think that the stain was drying out, too! We’ve already emailed the managing agents about the issue but I doubt the problem will be resolved before Wednesday. It’s just very frustrating and I’m concerned that the leaky pipe is going to damage our ceiling or our electrics in the bathroom, so hopefully this whole situation gets fixed soon and I can stop worrying so much about it!

Phew. Glad I got that off my chest. Let’s see, what else have I got up to today? This Boxing Day has really flown by, and I’m just looking forward to tomorrow when I can resume my regular workouts at the gym. Beforehand, though, I’m going over to the in-laws to do a little ab session with one of my sisters-in-law so that’ll be fun! I’m going to try and reduce the workout a little bit since it can get quite intense, but with any luck she’ll find it fun and easy to modify to suit her needs.

Anyway, that about sums up my Boxing Day. As you can probably tell, it wasn’t very eventful unless you measure that in cups of tea or amount of time spent on the sofa, hah! See you tomorrow!
