I am trying very hard to not spend all my time getting jobs etc done but take time to step back and actually enjoy the Festive Season. I know that I have not done this in the past and by the time Christmas Day arrives I am ever so slightly (or actually very much) frazzled!!!
I still have lots of things to do but I keep writing my lists and crossing things off, which definitely helps me to keep organised and I find that once I have written them down, I feel the pressure is off.
I am also determined to be cheerful around people. So far some shop assistants and other people I have had to deal with seem to be in a perpetual bad mood and I am determined they will not bring me down with them! I also hope that being cheerful with them will make them in a better mood! It is my Christmas experiment this year!!!!
Treacle is also very busy at home and is constantly following me from room to room to see what I am up to but then she is missing out on her sleep. I sat down this afternoon to finish a piece of work off and before I knew it she was fast asleep in her basket by my desk!!! This is the first snooze she has had since she got up at 5.00am this morning with us!!!!
I hope you are having a good Festive Week and you have time to enjoy all the preparations.
Christmas Hugs & Love, Susie xx
