I think I'm slipping into post Christmas blues :(

Christmas creeps up on you, its suddenly my works 'do', I'm then doing the annual Lincoln - Norfolk - Lincoln run to swap pressies with my parents, then its 'the day'......a week later New Year......then boom, its all over for another 365 days.

Just as I'm getting festive its all over :(

I dont think taking the decs down on Saturday helped either, my living room looks so bland now :roll:



The wife and I were talking last night about having a mini Christmas in June :lol:

Personally I breathe a sigh of relief and look forward to spring and the start of new year. Bah humbug.

chins up guys. We're past the shortest day of the year and getting lighter and warmer with each day. Have the shorts on standby and make room on the shelves for your bike lights.

If only ..

It is hard to be motivated today, but it will be good to start getting rid of any extra weight gained from over eating. I think I'm burning calories just keeping warm in my freezing office!!!

Nights are drawing out, will be able to go for a ride after work without lights in about 5 months - get in!!! :D

i'm also pleased its all over. i really hate christmas. a total marketing con. even for christians its not the be all and end all. isnt easter more significant for christians?

christmas is a massive waste of time and money in my eye. i dont have kids by the way - that probably changes things somewhat
