Betwixt & Between...

I find this a strange time of the year, betwixt & between Christmas and New Year......I suppose one of the reasons is everything changes pace and some things stop all together, your normal routine goes to pieces and you can find yourself lounging on the sofa at 4.00 in the afternoon feeling you should be doing something, but not quite sure what!

I find the end of the year a very retrospective and introspective time, more so because it's not just the end of the year for me, it's also the end of my financial year and I have to do the accounts and take stock of what has happened business wise over the last twelve months and with my birthday coming up in January it becomes a personal review......you know that "gosh another year older" where did the time go.......what have I achieved type of stuff.......

Well, I am going to try to be positive about 2009, Jonathan Cainer whose horoscopes I read most days ( I actually have his site for my homepage ;-) ) says this for me a Capricorn in 2009 and it can apply to anyone.....

'Your task, in 2009, is to overcome fear or misgiving and replace it with confidence, optimism and hope'

Sounds good to me............

Today I had a burst of energy, no sofa moments wondering and wandering through my minds eye. I did some work and launched a sale on the website. We all like a bargain, so if there is something you had your eye on before Christmas have a look as there is a good chance it will have been reduced. I will return to my desk proper on 5th January so any orders placed between now and then will go out during that week.

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year, lots of luck and happiness for 2009.

P.S. The little felt cat is my 'Lucky' black cat. I have posted him as a good luck symbol to everyone in 2009. He sits in my curio cabinet near my desk, I found him in a delapidated Art Deco handbag many moons ago and adopted him.
