Christmas is over and it’s the start of a brand spanking New Year.Â Here’s my tribute to the festive season ofÂ 2012 and a look forward to whatÂ 2013 will bring:
Goodbye to gluttony and the
Over-indulgence of rich food, the
Over-eating of savoury snacks and
Delicious cheese and biscuits.
Bon voyage to sitting around stuffing
Yule log into full stomachs but
Cheers! to cheesy films and alcohol consumed, the
Hangovers that followed and the
Realisation that you have it all to do again
In a very short time.
So long to the Christmas
Tree with its trimmings and
Manic children who’ve consumed too much chocolate and been
Allowed to stay up late.
See ya, Santa (until next year).
So now it’s:
Hello to healthy eating and no
Alcohol for a month.
PayingÂ off credit cards and overdrafts and
Planning for summer holidaysÂ toÂ quell the
Yearning for some sunshine.
New projects to be
Entered into, ambitions to be fulfilledÂ and enough
Weight loss and fitness DVD advertsÂ to make your eyes bleed.
Yoga will be considered and rejected but
Exercise will be on everyone’s
Agenda because we all begin a new year with hearty
Resolutions…that we’ll probably only keep for a week.
Happy New Year!Â Hope it’s a good one 🙂
