A Christmas message from The Modern Parent

Well it ain’t no message from the Queen but the picture above pretty much sums up all that I wish for myself, my friends my family and all of my readers for the ensuing festive season.

Take it Easy and Relax: Hopefully you have managed to scrounge some days off work to spend with the family. If so, take a load off and enjoy. Enjoy just chilling out, relaxing, having fun and conforming to no rules, times, criteria or schedules.

Eat, Drink  & Do not Diet: Well this is fairly self explanatory. Whilst I am all for looking after yourselves and maintaining a healthy lifestyle (I said I was all for it but never actually stipulated i did it), it is important to just eat up and enjoy this Christmas. If you need to burn off a few extra kilojoules, go outside and play some cricket, dive in a pool or go for a big walk with the family to view some Christmas lights.

Be Merry and Smile: The most important thing to remember this festive season. Now that all the shopping is done, it is now  the time to be merry. Time to smile and laugh and have fun with those important to you. To rejoice in all you have and look forward to lots of good times ahead.

Thankyou to all those that have read and commented and given me feedback this year. One year into my blog and I have learnt so much and have so much more to plan for the coming year. I look forward to a happy and productive 2012 with so many exciting endeavours in store.

I wish you all a safe, happy and healthy festive season full of love, laughter and good times surrounded by those you love.
