December 18, 2013
So how are you faring with just a week to go until the big day? Are all the presents bought and wrapped, and the food cupboards full and booze stockpiled? Or are you hiding behind a heavy workload and trying your best to ignore all the fuss in the run-up to December 25th?
Love it or loathe you can’t escape it; As I write, Santa is bridling Rudolph and packing his giant sack in readiness to delight well-behaved kids the world over; those weird neighbours across the street of have draped every inch of their home in gaily coloured fair lights that blind you every time you peer out from behind the curtains, and sprouts can once again be found by their bucket load in local supermarkets, despite the fact no one has ever enjoyed them since humans first began eating vegetables.
Yep, Christmas is back in all its traditional glory. Will we ever get out alive?
Well, possibly not, but who cares? Time away from the office, guilt-free mounds of food and drink (diet starts in January, obviously), bad TV, overly-excited kids, silly jumpers and new socks. What’s not to love?
If the excitement levels in Rix’s office right now are anything to go by nothing, but then we’re a bunch of overgrown kids here, no matter what the time of year!
So from all of us at Rix Petroleum, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all our customers for supporting us in 2013 and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Take care over the festive season, keep yourself and your loved ones safe and have a fantastic time. We’ll look forward to catch-up in 2014.
ps....if you haven't already done so, remember to order your heating oil!! Sorry we couldn't help but get a mention in!!
