Have you been naughty or nice?

Tis the season to be jolly, tis the season to be gay...

It's that time of year, when you ponder the year that's ending and tie up any loose ends.
It's a time to make good resolutsions for the year to come.

I know there's lots I still want to take care of, that I promised myself I'd do before the year came to an end. It's a list of material things, of personal things, as well as more frivilous matters.

No matter what religion, race or political belief you carry inside you, you can't shy away from the fact that 365 days have gone by and what do you have to show for it?
Whether you've been good or bad, selfish or kind, let's hope we can all end this year with a smile on our face and contribute to bringing smiles on the faces of those around us.

Fate

So why is it that even when you have the best intentions, those good intentions go to shit?
FATE, that's why!

What am I talking about? Well, let me indulge you.
I've been asked to arrive early to work for the past few days due to some meetings that have been taking place throughout the week. Not only, but last night I was asked to stay late. Fine... I'm not happy about it, I get up early enough as it is, and never get home before 7pm on a good day, but at least I get paid overtime so I guess I can't really complain.

That said, today was another one of those days where I was supposed to arrive at 8.30am. So far I've been having issues with the commute because trains are running late making the journey going in rather difficult, to say the least. I'll save you from sharing my frustration! It just wouldn't be lady-like! ; )

So today, what changed? Well we have someone come help around the house a couple of hours a week.. We are very fortunate to be able to have help, but this person too commutes.
Guess what? Yes! Their train was late this morning as well, making me late (seeing as I had to wait to let them in) causing me to miss the early train!

Fate, I tell you!
