Someone said something to me yesterday that rang all the right bells!
I can't wait to get back to normal...
Its funny isn't it, how a really long break can be quite exhausting. You can have "too much of a good thing"!
Our festive season has been as busy as anyone's. The endless preparations and imperative to party, feast and generally "make merry" is unrelenting. And that's all before you make it to Christmas Eve!!
Is it worse than it used to be? I'm not sure as it's difficult to be objective. Certainly the arrival of decorations, glittering gifts and Christmas 'musak' in autumn does everything to dampen anticipation and heighten indifference for me... But that's just me. I was horrified to see an ad on tele yesterday for a famous Easter egg.
I find commercialism distasteful, yet I know it helps keep folk in employment. Swings and roundabouts...
But that's all a bit of a sidetrack of thought. We're creatures of routine and rhythm. Lack of it and we quickly become disorientated - or at least I do!
I'd almost go as far to say that I can't wait to go back to work on Tuesday... but only almost!
