Christmas thoughts

25 December, 2016

As I tend to do at times, I have realised……….quite late, that I have not done a Christmas blog. So as I decided to check out some Christmas quotes and see if there were some that may be useful advice for getting through another Christmas Day unscathed.  Now to say they were ordinary is an understatement…….this is the best I could muster up:

T’was the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Clement Clarke Moore

But then I just looked up the 60 selected best famous quotes of all time. ( and surprisingly there were some pretty appropriate ones to draw on, during the BIG DAY.

You can do anything, but not everything. David Allen

That’s for all the hostesses on the day. Delegate!!

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

After last year, where everyone made a dish or three, we looked like at the end that we could feed another 50 people. So remember the company and the laughter is what is important not the quantity of food.

The richest man is not he who has the most, but he who needs the least. Unknown Author
So watch out all those who have second helpings of plum pud!
When hungry, eat your rice; when tired, close your eyes. Fools may laugh at me, but wise men will know what I mean. Lin-Chi
We all know who is going to take that advice seriously and just crash when overload takes control. Sleep to really enjoy Christmas Day!
 The person who reads too much and uses his brain too little will fall into lazy habits of thinking. Albert Einstein
And just because, as you know, I love Albert Einstein quotes, and this is a beauty.
And I can think of no better place to be thinking, than at the beach.

Merry Christmas to everyone and may your Christmas Day go smoothly and with good cheer.
