Following on from my last post, I have decided that I am not going to do the stress thing with Christmas this year. In previous years I have tried to do too much and be perfect. So this year it is all going to be much simpler.
First of all, I’m going to do as much of my Christmas shopping online as I can. I’m planning to do this in the next couple of weeks so everything will be with us well before Christmas. I am going to stay away from town centres and malls, there are better ways to spend my time other than wandering aimlessly trying to think of something to buy people. Luckily Edie and Bee have told me what they want, so I can get on with doing this.
I also need to manage my time in the run up to Christmas carefully. Some years I have reached Christmas feeling completely frazzled – that isn’t going to happen this time. There are some things I want to do (playing with the orchestra, making a Christmas cake, collecting Edie from the airport when she comes home) and I have carefully planned these so I’m not trying to cram too much in.
How are you planning the run up to Christmas?
Until next time, Tawney x
