Christmas is only 7 weeks away does this fill you with dread or are you one of those people who just love Christmas and are supper organised.
Well I fall into the Bridget Jones type of person who thinks I have all the time in the world then panics the week before and end up spending more than I had intended or a gift that I am not sure about or what to buy as a baby gift for a friend.
I have just finished reading Mad about the Boy, the third book in the Bridget Jones series, which I treated myself to as early Christmas present and found it hard to put down.
It has been lovely catching up with this lovely character or old friend who has now become a mother and has had to deal with loosing Husband, Mark Darcy and trying to get her own life back on track juggling children, work and friends in the only clumsy way Bridget can.
We can all identify with Bridget and she somehow makes us all feel better about ourselves so we can sit back feeling slightly smug as our life is not as bad as hers.
Bridget now has twitter, face book and texting to make her life even more complicated and she also has to deal with getting older.
Bridget spends hours ‘faffing about but never actually getting anywhere which I think most mums feel like on some days but we don’t like to admit to it.
We also write endless lists just like Bridget than never get completed just added too but the one thing that we should all learn from Bridget is never give in we all make mistakes but time heals everything and life changes or takes a unexpected direction but as we all need to remember life goes on so lets live it to the full and enjoy being mums.
A book to enjoy and LOL with and makes a great gift for a new mum as we all get it wrong sometimes just not as much as Bridget hopefully.
