Happy Sunday chums! Up to anything nice? Decking the halls? Shopping for Christmas? Or hiding from the world under your cosy duvet?
This month is going to fly by so I’m trying to take it all in and enjoy the moments that have made Christmas so memorable in the past; trying to embrace the stress and all that jazz (see my previous post on tips for life on the go at Christmas). One of those traditions is writing Christmas cards to friends and family.

We put a lot of pressure on ourselves at Christmas time. Far too much, considering it’s meant to be a time to celebrate, be merry and simply be with the ones we love. Yet, when December calls we find ourselves stressed out by obligations, to do lists and errands. On top of that we’re eating and drinking more, sleeping less and working hard to make sure Christmas holidays are an actual holiday from work. So it’s no wonder in the past, I’ve found myself reaching to my bag for my Bach’s remedy spray and heartburn tablets, having a little cry into my evening sherry and falling asleep on the sofa at 8pm. Modern life is demanding at the best of time but silly season is something else.
I think it’s safe to say I’m in full on festive mode now. Bring on the celebrations, deck those halls, and pass me the mulled wine. Life is far too short and if this year has taught me anything it’s to make each day count, and I promise to do just that. This time of year is my favourite so I’m going to make sure I enjoy and embrace every little moment of it; the sherry, the long lists, and frozen fingertips!
