DEAR BOSS……. I’M TAKING THE DAY OFF ….(Yes I know its nearly Christmas) !!

Yesterday I was awoken from a Super Deep sleep, not only by the annoying sound of my Alarm, but also by the buzzing noise it makes as it’s set to vibrate also… Argh bloody iPhones can’t live with them, can’t live without them…

I was absolutely buggered, I don’t know if it’s just that time of year, or if I’ve been over doing it or if I was just plain and simple Exhausted….no excuse necessary…

Well I went with the latter.

The kids were the same; I struggled to get them up also…

Its Christmasitis, (a virus that erupts prior to Christmas, that makes you think everything in the world needs to be done, perfect before Christmas…it causes exhaustion, grumpiness and turns people Grinchy.) Can be subdued with a big glass of Bubbles, wine or Beer.

I had a list of things to do a Mile high; kids and all of their social activities before Christmas, sorting out costumes for the Christmas school concert (OMG how was I going to make Hippopotamus costume in 2 days!!! I know it doesn’t sound Christmassy, but Miss 5 is signing Í want a Hippopotamus for Christmas’) getting the house sorted before Christmas, getting into the garden (which is currently looking a bit Amazonian) before Christmas, Baking 60 little Christmas Trees for the kids to give to their friends with the Christmas cards….OMG everything before Christmas!!!

I didn’t even include my regular work (the paid stuff). Ok so that only 2 hours or so, but I couldn’t even fathom tackling that either…

So the decision was made…

WERE ALL TAKING THE DAY OFF!!!

So I called my Boss (only joking…that’s me!)

We hung out in our PJs for a while and started off the day in a cruisy fashion. I took the kids to the park for the afternoon, I had a magazine in hand and everyone was happy…

I did no work at all yesterday….not a thing…

No cooking, no cleaning, no getting things ready for Christmas, no stressing, no getting overwhelmed…no nothing.

It was Fabulous.

Today I woke up bright eyed and Bushy tailed, refreshed, re energised, ready to take on the world….but I kept one thing in mind….who cares if it’s not done by Christmas…who really cares…

The answer was ME…

I was the one who had put all these expectations on myself.

So from today…no expectations….go with the flow…

I mean does it really matter that Miss 5 doesn’t have the best Hippo outfit…Seriously Doubt it.

Do those 60 kids need homemade Christmas tree biscuits with their Christmas cards…Hell No!!!

So I didn’t get those 500 emails sent, oh well they will get sent today..

Time to refocus and slow down

Take some time out…it’s only Christmas….it will be here again next year.

Cheers Corina
