It's here, the first day in a long while that you can actually chill, put your feet up and relax after a mad-busy year and probably an even more manic run up to Christmas day! Well thank goodness, the Christmas meal is over, gifts are all distributed and hopefully the kids are contentedly playing with them now... Bliss.
As the pace slows a bit, this is the best time of the year for reflection and if you're like us, you'll find your thoughts drifting to highlights (and possibly even lowlights) of the year gone by - what went well, what went badly, what you want to do more of, less of, differently. You'll also naturally start thinking about goals and plans for the new year, things you desire for both yourself and your loved ones. Somewhere in there you will likely have a desire for the kind of relationship you want to enjoy with your partner. So we thought, we'd write this blog as our gift to help you clarify your thinking. So, here it is... our gift to you: The 12 Days of Christmas for Great Relationships. Read on for Day One, and check your inbox daily for the next 11 days to get the rest. We hope you enjoy and look forward to hearing your stories...
On the first day of Christmas, my True Love gave to me... a Partridge in a Pear Tree!
Don't worry, if like us, you too were wondering why a Partridge and Why a Pear Tree???, there's a link at the end of this blog that will take you through to a very interesting blog we read recently that explains all the history and significance of the Carol and the tradition.
