When it comes to going on holiday
I like to get there faster
I want to leave at 3 am
5, if there’s a disaster
My family doesn’t give a hoot
They’ll sleep in until 10
As long as they get there
They don’t really care about when
I need to pack the night before
And have a list to help me
They’ll pack as we walk out the door
Because we’re a normal family
I need to be on the road
The sooner is the better
But they have to go to the store
And maybe write a letter
The car is packed and ready
But the tyre is pancake flat
So we wait a little longer
While Dad takes of that
When finally we hit the street
And drive a little way
Something’s got forgotten
So, we have to start again
It’s that time of year when I look back at the last one and forward to the next.
2014 is my year of new beginnings, new adventures and new experiences.
This year I will break free of my self-imposed exile.
No more letting life pass me by.
This year I’ll grab life with both hands and dive in the deep end.
Maybe I’ll even go skydiving!
(Yeah, maybe in 2015?)
These are my guidelines for next year.
They’re all common sense, but sometimes common sense eludes me and I need a little reminding.
I must also say thank you to all my friends on WordPress who have seen me through melodrama, ups, downs and in-betweens over the past year.
You know who you are, thank you for your smiles, laughter, comments.
May you all have a magnificent time over the holidays and celebrate life, friends, family, snow, sunshine and tomorrow.
Now I have to go shopping and come with something creative to serve for dinner tomorrow night.
At the rate I am going my poor guests will have to bring and braai!
