Listening to Good Morning Sunday today and thir theme was Clinging on to Christmas.
Some people have Christmas presents under the tree awaiting the day that the family can come round again be it Easter or August. Although it’s not twelfth night yet, many are leaving the decorations up for another couple of months to hang on to that usual feeling of warmth that abides across the country at this time. Philippa Perry (Grayson’s wife) has something like 57 turkey pies in the freezer as they couldn’t cancel the turkey when the Christmas Bubble evaporated. She said Boxing Day would last until Easter!
Is it time to move on or to hold on? I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer. If it makes you feel better, leave everything up but if the Christmas movies/mince pies/chocolates/decorations now bore you, then for you it’s the right time to move on.
Our mental wellbeing (key words of 2020?) is important which is why “what’s good for the goose isn’t necessarily good for the gander”.
I’m heading off to Kew at Christmas tomorrow night. I think that will round off my festive season and the decorations will come down. However, Ange said 13th January is the next decision date by the government. Hmm. Maybe I’ll just wait until then when the light at the end of the tunnel will be considerably brighter than those tiny sparkling ones of my Christmas tree! AND we might be able to look forward to opening the club again and getting back to bowls!
Keep handwashing, keep socially distanced, keep face covered when necessary, open a window/go outside. Phone a friend!
