Father Time Is Doing It Again…

07 Feb

Only last week it was still January, next week is half-term for the school kids and marks the middle of February!

After watching Big Sis take down the decorations on 2nd January it felt that Christmas was still in the air but watching a programme that I recorded before Christmas, seeing the festive adverts again it felt as if the season of Nöel was something coming in the (distant) future rather than the recent past.

2017 is going to do it too, isn’t it?  That thing where January has seven weeks but the rest of the months will only have three. It’s awful, just six weeks until the clocks change, a little over four months until the longest day. The year is going to zip past if I don’t try and get a hold of it.

    I’ve still got some of my seasonal cards on show, the ones that did not arrive till the beginning of January. I have even been seen browsing in the last couple of weeks and talking to shop assistants about the suitability of an item or three for Xmas gifts. That was the point where I grabbed back the year and decided all that can very definitely wait! It can be wearisome…a break is very much needed.

      My Neice-in-law said today she had put her daughter’s (mini-me) name down to start school. Sept 2018 will be here all too too quickly.

        By my reckoning, mini-me will be donning school uniform in about 18/19 months. Time and tide waits for no man [or woman].
