Me and my walking buddies have a regular trip over Xmas and New Year, although this year families are invited
I think its a great time to get a couple of days in the hills at least, it's needed to burn off the xmas dinner.
I'm working over through Christmas and New Year.
I'll be out on the bike several times over the christmas period, usually followed by coffee and cake at someones house.
Will probably partake of a brisk walk along the cliffs at some point as well.

Is that an 'oh dear' families are invited face? How so? Old, young, or just not that welcome? Nice to get out the house though. Is snow on your wish list?
Not so much oh dear, we will have a great time, just a change I guess. No oldies, more a case of the better halves who we normally get away from.
A few kids too!
Snow is most definitely on the wish list, we're going to be staying in Bala and hopefully get chance to do a couple of good routes in deep snow. Fingers crossed!
...... For me running or walking is a great way to escape the in laws rather than to keep fit. Literally running away from them as they start to bicker is a wonderful feeling.....
Now that you've identified yourself, I take it they won't be reading this. It's difficult to ignore Christmas completely but we try our best I think it was a couple of years ago that we did a wild camp on Xmas Day, it was very satisfying. Felt like quite an achievement to escape and do our own thing.....but I did have to live with the guilt
Whilst keeping up the 'bah humbuggy' approach, this year requires more of a balancing act. (And we do actually have some nice rellies that we'd like to catch up with.)
So mostly dashing around seeing folk on Xmas and Boxing day, then it's off to the hills unless the weather is really p!sh.

Days off, winter, Scotland.
Was there something else I should be doing other than getting outdoors?

Forecast for the weekend looks pretty naff so probably stay at home and go running instead.
I'll be out most days over the holiday week, local walks mostly, a run or two as well.
On Christmas day the family are here so I'll most likely lozzock around doing sweet eff all. On Boxing Day I'll be queueing to grab some cheap gear in the sales.
I always spend new year's eve at home with my family (we raise a glass at midnight with Jools Holland on the telly) but I'll be off camping on new year's day.
