This time last week I was in gorgeous Akaroa New Zealand - having breakfast with the guys from work - this was the view....

That short break and a good friend convinced me that this is a good time to slow down, and embrace the inevitability of the holidays.  So for me this week it is casual clothes, low heeled sandals and a relaxed attitude to work.

Does that mean I am not working? No it just means I am not trying to make things happen - I am simply letting them happen.  From the amazing things that keep appearing out of the blue I am thinking this isn't a bad attitude to carry through for the rest of the year.

But of course I won't, at some stage I will get too serious about things and I will "forget to wear flats to work".

If you are struggling to get to the finish line that is "Christmas" - take a breath, put on some flats, and a Hawaiin shirt and if anyone asks you why tell them because it is 21 days until holidays and you are starting early.

If I don't get back here to say it in a few weeks - Merry Christmas ! Happy New Year! Happy Summer Holidays!

Until next time

That sounds like a great attitude to have - although I always wear flats to work!

Hard to believe its 3 weeks to go. Must get my tree up this week - doesn't feel like Christmas because both girls are still in Adelaide. Have got a few gifts but certainly not done yet! Lunch for my side of the family is at my nieces but it's up in the air for Gus' side - bit of friction happening so it's an unknown! Erk! Worst comes to worse, we will just be 4 of us for Christmas tea.
