Once we have our holidays out of the way - that would be the Christmas Break and the New Year Fun Days - it is time for almost all of the working population to settle back into routine. How often do you hear people grizzling about Christimas - is the complaining habit or is it heartfelt? I often think our lives would just not seem right without the buzz of the Christmas/New Year break.Christmas signals the end of our year - for the housewives of yesteryear it was the yardstick for getting lots of little jobbies done..(.bet you have done it yourself)...New curtains - lets get them hung before Christmas..the flower bed out the front?...needs to be in full bloom by Christmas..Bathroom retiled..got to be done by Christmas Day, the 101 people I haven't seen all year...MUST catch up with all of them before Christmas... I see no harm in using this very special time as a motivational yardstick as long as we take the time to be thankful for the pleasure and love that the Festive Season brings to all of us lucky buggers!! Time to settle back into routine and get on with those "to do" lists...I've reactivated my "to do list" book - now that could be because I am highly motivated or the memory now needs fine tuning...A productive 2013 everyone..you have just over 10 months to get your list completed!!
