END OF THE YEAR RUSHES CLOSER

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

OKAY, so football is over for another year. What are you go­ing to do to keep your­self en­ter­tained now the cheer­ing has died down? You can start to plan your Mel­bourne Cup cel­e­bra­tions. It is the first Tues­day in Novem­ber and it would be un-Aus­tralian not to have a bet and tip­ple to mark the race that stops a na­tion. And af­ter that, it will be time to fo­cus on Christ­mas. What do you buy a mother-in­law who has ev­ery kitchen ap­pli­ance know to mankind and enough clothes to fill a small store? Is there time to start a fit­ness pro­gram be­fore the sum­mer hol­i­days? Should you work on a tan? A mid­dle-aged paunch and lily white skin is not ex­actly this year’s beach look. And then it will be Jan­uary 1, with its oblig­a­tory hang­over to start the New Year, a swag of bro­ken res­o­lu­tions and a re­turn to the daily grind. Where the hell did the year go?
