The true spirit of Christmas

I urge you, instead of running around, instead of berating yourself over the cards you’ve forgotten to send, instead of worrying over the cake you were meant to ice, or the biscuits you were meant to bake for teachers, just stop.

Stop, slow down (and bin the #Elfontheshelf)

Even if you do everything you possibly can, even if you lose that stone, win the lottery AND find that Stretchkins toy, it still won’t be perfect. Because there will always be something out of your control. That’s not to say it won’t be a lovely Christmas, and a fab day for all involved, but it will be that whether or not you reach the end of your ‘to do’ list.
