How to avoid all that pre christmas cleaning and hype before Christmas day
Avoid the stress of Christmas
Don’t you just hate all the things you have to do before Christmas? You rush about for weeks cleaning up your home, washing all the bed linen and curtains. Spend hours doing all the cooking and stress out before the day.
And let’s face it who really cares or looks at how your home appears. We put ourselves through so much stress, for what?
It’s just the presents that everyone or the kids especially care about these days anyway isn’t it?
Then of course the food and drinks would be next on the list of importance I believe.
So why do we do it?
No stress Christmas
This year I did all the things I normally did in my home:
- Washed all the bed linen
- Made sure every thing was clean and tidy
- Washed the floors
- Prepared all the food
- Bought the nuts and nibbles
- Made and bought the xmas drinks (home brew beer)
- And it didn’t cost us a fortune for Christmas decorations
So what is different to all the other years I hear you ask?
Simple, we packed up and left our home for life in a caravan, traveling around Australia for twelve months. We should have done this much sooner. Now I can do my housework in a matter of a couple of hours.
We have milliondollar views - that dont cost us a million dollars
Breathe Fresh air and have new scenery when we tire of the place we are at or when we dont like our neighbours.
We keep out of trouble because we are away and there are no family arguments if there are we don’t know about them.
My one regret is: Yes, we do miss the family and my grand kids of course. But there is always next year I suppose. So now you know how to avoid the Stress of Christmas.
We hope you all have a safe and Happy Christmas and have a great start to the New Year ahead. Enjoy your life. Wake up in the morning and feel blessed that you woke up at all.
