I feel as if the Christmas roller coaster has got its grip on me and I am been dragged towards the 25th December. Going through the motions of buying presents and writing cards, but do not feel any emotional attachment to it this year.
It reminds me of a wonderful quote which I once overheard a work colleague saying on the phone. I obviuosly couldn’t hear both sides of the conversation but he must have been apologising for not having completed something on time. He said, “What with December being a short month this year and Christmas coming early.” Strange, at the time it seemed funny, this year it feels true!
