The end of the year is fast approaching and it’s busy busy busy. Druk druk druk. You know you’re too busy when you start to feel like the Dutch word for ‘busy’ is infinitely more – ok, twice as – economical as the English word, since it has half the syllables. When you start to scrap all non-essential tasks. Laundry? Bathrobe’s fine. Grocery shopping? Why bother – nothing beats cereal for dinner. Christmas presents? I’ll pick some up from the airport on my way home. Christmas cards? You’re joking. When you start to think: sod it, I’m nearly 30, you know what I should do? Get pregnant and have a litter of kids. Because THAT would be relaxing.
