Staycation – Christmas 2013

Had a blissful time during Christmas and New Year this year – we took two days off work and combined with the statutory leave days and weekends we didn’t need to go into the office for 8 days … well we had one work day at the office to pack up to move Xero NYC (a.k.a. Fringe Division) from Astor Place to the bottom of Broadway in the Financial District.

We stocked up on groceries before Christmas so it was great to mostly stay at home and spend no money – although we did go outside most days to get coffee (of course), went to the museum of natural history one day and saw 3 movies: Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle and Secret Life of Walter Mitty (all good). We had an NYC family Christmas Eve dinner (Moroccan chicken), movies and a rolled pork roast on Christmas Day.

The city was pretty quiet (except for Chelsea Market and the museum which attracted lots of holiday-makers). We also caught up on some TV shows we’d missed, binge-watched The Americans, Orange is the New Black and The Fall (all great!) I also knitted most of 2 Xero baby sweaters.

Staycation was great!
