December is a bit like an oldfashioned hour glass. All the little bits and pixels that make up anyone’s year suddenly become highly agitated and surge like livestock through a narrow open farm-gate . . . and inevitably into the next paddock.
That paddock, number 2016, with its promise of lush growth and new beginnings, beckons.
But before we slip through the bottleneck between one and the other, there are countless dozens of things to get done, people to organise, arrangements to be made, with school holidays complicating the mix.
It makes for an exciting as well as hectically busy, bordering on the inconvenient, time.
Do remember to take a break and focus on the important things in your life – family, friends and sociable festivities.
Be safe, party safe and drive safe. There’s no sense adding to the seasonal stresses by being reckless behind the wheel, or with your credit card.
