My last article of 2015 for the Loch a Tuath News!
Each of our days lasts twenty-four hours. Each week is seven days. Each year is fifty-two weeks. And still, regardless of these facts, it seems every Christmas comes upon us quicker than it did the year before. I’ve often wondered why this is the case. The most obvious reason I could think of is that living so far away now means that my fellow expats and I need to plan as early as possible for a trip home. It’s not unusual for us to start organising our holiday plans as early as July. To leave it to the last minute is to feel the harsh sting of FlyBe’s wrath on our bank account, leaving us to a month of eating leftovers and wondering whether our money would have been better spent on a flight to New York.
