MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hello to all the waitematawoodys readers – merry christmas and best wishes for the holidays. Where ever you are in the world I hope you are taking the opportunity to reconnect with friends and family.
To me Christmas is not a date, it is a state mind – that hopefully lasts 2 > 3 weeks. People generally are nicer to each other, more considerate and forgiving. I’m a giver, always have been, I love the whole process of choosing gifts for people and almost always get it right, except when I bought the wife a lifejacket (there were other items) one year.
I’m a fan of trying to live my everyday life in an amusing, enjoyable way – that way you do not need to look forward to holidays to escape everyday life – life is a holiday, easily said but it works for me. The Pooh Bear cartoon below from A.A. Milne portrays it perfectly.
Enjoy the break, safe travels 🙂
Ps I’ll try to keep the WW stories flowing but forgive me if I miss a day, life might just get in the way 😉

  2. Merry Christmas Mr Houghton and all Woodys followers.
    Keep up the good work as the daily read is always the first to be opened each morning.
    With all the recent brokerage ads I can only assume we will see Raindance featured shortly as the lure of a bigger boat beckons😀.

  5. Happy Christmas to you, may you be able to maintain this state for as long as you want.
    I follow your blog daily and enjoy it very much.
    I, unfortunately have a plastic campervan on the water and I am too chicken to convert to something made of wood and style yet but as the life commitments are lessening I am getting closer.
    Thank you for your efforts.🥂
