It was a lovely long weekend. I slept longer hours at night and napped quite a bit during the day. I spent some time with friends. Went shopping for Christmas presents. Thank God my side of Johannesburg slowly becomes a ghost town after the 15th December, when peoplego away for holidays outside the city.
It does feel creepy when I go for my regular walk and I can go around 10 minutes without a car/bus/taxi driving past. But it also makes Christmas shopping a leisure activity. No queues. No irritable people wanting you out of the way. You can have a seat at restaurants without having to wait and have a leisurely meal without feeling like you're taking up a seat that could be used by another paying customer.
I still have work to finish before I can close up business for Christmas/New Year holidays, but it's a manageable work load.
What does your week in the run up to Christmas look like?
