How are your Christmas preparations coming along?
Are you feeling ready and organised or just totally stressed and over it all?
I have to say, I'm feeling pretty stressed and pretty disorganised and I don't think I'm alone.
The decorations are up and all the presents are bought but there's always more to do isn't there?
Do you try to do too much at this time of year? Set yourself ridiculous goals and then
beat yourself up if you don't acheive them? I'm afraid I'm pretty guilty of that.
Given that I still have this horrible throat infection, I'm making a concerted effort to try to relax and let the kids lead the way with what we do over the next couple of days. They are old enough (and not too old!) to help out with lots of the preparations so my pre-New Year resolution is to let them help and not to let myself get stressed over the small stuff that doesn't matter!
If I don't make it back here to update the blog before Christmas, have a wonderful break and a lovely time with your family.
