It’s Christmas. It has been since 2nd December 2012. I mean, let’s face it. We love the holidays. So much so that we would not mind having a holiday to celebrate holidays. Come December, therefore, our collective mood sky-rocket. You can feel it in the air. People have a renewed bounce. Faces shine. The sun glares. And if you are not yet there, shop windows are painted appropriately to get you there in a hurry.
You would think with the hoopla about the Mayan Calendar ‘end of the world’ thing the spirits would be toned down some. You would be wrong. If you are like me, and are sometimes freaked out by the slightest hint of the world as we know it coming to an end (no, seriously, I love this world with all it’s ups and downs) you probably went on a reading spree. To know what they were talking about. If you are like me again, you probably got so confused by all the myths, confusion, contradiction and mind boggling information that you slammed your reading device shut and went for a long walk and had a long talk with God, advising him that this would not be an appropriate time to end the world, what with Christmas and New Year holidays coming up.
Either way, I am not going to worry about these Mayan fellows. Last I read, the end of their calendar meant that they were going to collect all the Crystal Skulls together so that all the information of ages that had been stored in said skulls would be brought together and we can then… bla… bla…. bla. Come to think of it, we had the same noise about some guy who had done some math and determined that the world was coming to an end. What is it with these people? Are they that bored with the world? Or perhaps they have some other place to be? If not, I can think of a few ways they can make their lives more exciting. Perhaps join Twitter or Farmville (does that one still exist?).
So here’s the deal. I am not going to put my life on hold waiting for the world to end. I have plans you know…. What plans you ask? On 23rd or thereabouts, Junior and I are going to look for Santa in one of those large malls and I also intend to go swinging on the monkey bars at the said malls. People who send me presents had better continue sending me presents, both for Christmas and New Year’s. Goats and sheep will continue to fall this season and we shall eat, drink and make merry, just like we do every other year. Then come New Year, we are going to look at our budgets, our pockets, sit in a corner and cry over the amount of money we spent during the season and quickly draft our New Year’s resolutions which, with any luck, will last till 8th of January 2013 and then…… Complete the sentence with what you will be doing.
So, Happy Holidays my friends. See you on the other side of the NOT Mayan Calendar. Say… If this calendar is over, what will the Mayans use? But wait, the Mayans no longer exist, so they probably don’t need it anyway, yes?

Kids Breakfast Ideas
If your child is half as fussy as Junior, then the breakfast table can be a war zone. I find that 3 pieces of weetabix, combined with a banana, and milk always does the trick. He gets to have a healthy, short breakfast, loaded with tons of energy.
Handy Cleaning Tips
Coffee Stains In Mugs
I love my coffee mugs. I like them stain free. To remove that nasty brown ring inside, I use Wet a cloth. Put some baking soda and then rub the insidewith it. If the marks are stubborn, soaking overnight in hot water and baking soda helps.
