This is it, it’s the final countdown.  The kids are asleep and you’re determined to let go of all the stress and enjoy a night in wrapping presents and listening to carols.  (The ones you actually like, not the ones you have heard on repeat in the malls for the last 5 weeks.  If you have to hear Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer one more time….).

Set the scene by lighting a heavenly Vanilla Bourbon candle from Notre Vie and pull out the Donovans Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermints from their hiding place at the back of the pantry.  (Sometimes you’re just so clever, no one would ever think to look behind the brown rice).  Make a cup of Harney & Sons tea and feel all the stress start to melt away – good tea can do that for you.  When you’re half way there with present wrapping, it’s time for an ice cream break, and when you want ice cream you want the good stuff, so pull out a delicious treat from OOB (you’ll find it hiding under the frozen mixed veges).

Despite your best intentions, wrestling with odd shaped presents and cello tape that will not co-operate can sometimes cause you to lose your patience.  Nivea Clinical Strength Stress Protect deodorant will have you covered and save you from any sweaty meltdowns, while your Human and Kind anti aging cream will keep any stress wrinkles at bay.  Sit back, grab another choccy, and smile at your Winelist print from Little Rocket.

Hopefully someone takes the hint that the print is actually your Christmas wish list.

    This prize would be fantastic! Most days I’m lucky if I get a chance to brush my hair, and I’m still in the early days of pj’s until lunchtime with a newborn and a toddler. Throw in a move to a new city and the holiday season, and my stress levels have never been higher. Having chocolate and ice cream on hand will set me back on track, while I try to watch a programme that should be 30 minutes but takes 2 hours (I love you pause button). An amazing prize that will bring some Christmas cheer to our unsettled house :-)

    Dear Stress
    Not only should we break up but I would really appreciate it if you would just block me from everything. I don’t want to see or hear from you any more.
    I am officially blocking you on facebook (because we know it’s no true until its on there) and if you continue to visit me in my home, my workplace, my head and my heart I will have no other choice but to seek alternative ways of getting rid of you- like eating ice cream until I puke or looking at baby sloths.
