DECEMBER 2018, EDITION 3
I hope you about to enjoy a well-earned holiday?
On the farm 2018 has felt like day 2 of sani. Great, but hard and long. To close the year off we find ourselves in the red zone. We are frantically trying to get all our maize in after very late seasonal rains. It reminds me of chasing along one of those shimmering Karoo roads to get back in the peloton. One of those chaotic chases when there’s no real plan just flat box effort. This is never the ideal situation, with lots of shouting and swearing, everyone on the limit and with it the increased risk of an accident.
Sometimes in life you just need to put in the hard yards, so that rather sooner than later, you back in the comfort of the group where you can then relax and reflect on what’s happening around you. I am hoping this Christmas break gives you the opportunity to get back into the peloton where you can gather yourself, slow down and reflect on the happenings of the past year.
The Christmas break is the perfect time to make some plans to sort out your life. It’s the time to unwind and contemplate all around you and get things back into perspective. It’s the time to set some personal resolutions where your health should be a priority.
My wish for you this Christmas it that you have time to reflect on 2018 and are able to make some goals that will help you and your loved ones celebrate 2019 to its fullest. We hope KAPsani2c features in these plans.
Christmas brings time for family, friends and loved ones so I would like to wish you a wonderful festive season. Ride long so those mince pies are not a factor!
