Thanks for leaving the comment Med, I'll get over it. It was only two goals after all.
There are still a few days left before Christmas. Several of my friends are already moaning about Christmas, it's not this, its not that and saying they want things different next year. I was kind of falling into that boat when I realized there's still plenty of time to pull things round this year. Granted it's not going to be the Christmas I would of chosen but it will be far better than a whole host of other peoples and I can still make the best of what's left. It's a "time of giving" or put another way "giving time" and that's the plan. I shall start by thinking of ways to make you smile. Don't forget I read your blogs. So I know what a miserable bunch you are and how much you all deserve a laugh.
There's still a few days work as well, so a few clients available to torture with my quick wit and ready repartee. I still have to find a couple of presents. I'm going to have to be a bit cute with ideas for things that will be useful and inexpensive, I think I'll be able to pull that off.
What do I want? I've thought hard about this, it's definitely not anything material. What I'd really like is a life, well a slightly better one. Who's better placed than me to give that present. I'd imagine wrapping it might test my presentation skills somewhat but unpacking it and trying it on for size will be fun. So Christmas is starting to look a little rosier. Or more to the point I'm starting to recognize that I'm surrounded by one or two really good friends and by opportunity Which is there to be tapped into it and not walked by.
Onwards and upwards, through the snow, in the pursuit of happyness :-)
