The End of the Season

So, I hope that all my lovely readers had a wonderful and enjoyable Christmas and Boxing Day (or St. Stephen’s Day for those who like their feast days), and that you’ve filled up on turkey, wine, beer, chocolate and other seasonal treats. Hopefully you’ve got a few good days planned between now and New Year’s Eve, and you’ve got a good time lined up for that to usher in a new year.

As we approach the new year, I find myself in a reflective mood, which hasn’t leant well to sleeping much. Not that I’m worried about anything, but there’s a lot to look forward to in the new year and lots to work towards. I really need to make some more time for the PhD and to make some more time to do some writing. I want to get the first novel finished in the new year and there’s other projects that are currently on hold that I’d like to get around to.

Often I find myself like a kid in a sweet shop – I’ve got so many ideas all at once and things that I’m working on or collaborating on with other writers that I’m spoiled for choice and then I end up not picking one to concentrate on. I need to remedy that in the new year. Perhaps this year I might make a resolution… I’ve never bothered before – I don’t feel the need to give up chocolate or cheese or anything, and I know it wouldn’t last anyway. I love cheese and like chocolate (although not together).

Towards the end of the week I’ll be blogging about my highlights of 2011, so get thinking what yours have been ready to comment below. For now, I’ll leave you with a little poem for the occasion:

Christmas is Over

Well that’s it for another Christmas
It’s all down hill from here.
No more spending time with the family
An end to festive cheer.

Well that’s it for another Christmas
And it didn’t even snow.
But the yuletide will soon roll round again
Just three hundred and sixty three days to go!
