I don't count down days to big events or wish for time to fly by to Fridays. I've learnt that time, right here, right now, is precious and that is also one of my goals this year: to be present. To put away my phone during dinner and meet strangers whilst standing in line...well, maybe not that last bit.
However, I've been counting down to my holiday since January. Last year I did not take my annual leave over the summer holidays and when January rolled round, I was thoroughly fed up. I dreamt of exotic holidays, trips with friends, foreign languages and unpronounceable food and wines. That time is now.
Riesling, tempranillo or champagne? Who cares.
