Candy Cane Pretzel Milkshake

It’s four nights to Christmas!!! *EEkkk* But who’s counting. I am at the same time thrilled and horrified. Thrilled as I have been waiting for the Christmas break like some kinda relaxing oasis. Horrified as most of my presents still sit in a carrier bag next to my work desk — unwrapped and not posted.

I know I must get my Christmas act together asap. But this year it feels like time is just escaping from my fingertips. Am I getting older? Or more to the point am I getting slower? Do you ever feel like you are getting slower year by year? Ok, so it’s not like I am that old. Forty is the new twenty, right?! But sometimes when you have not had a holiday (or a break for a while) it can feel like you are getting slower. Or maybe it’s the winter that’s getting to me.
