I knew this would happen. I finally have a peaceful weekend with nothing major on and I am collapsing like a wet blanket. From what I can see around me I am not the only one suffering from this phenomenon. A friend of mine all of a sudden is caught by a tummy bug and Tigger is down. Staff is keeling over. I seriously think that is has something to do with how NZ is run.
See several things happen at the same time We change to summertime, which always knocks you a little. This happens as people are already tired from the winter. Then there is the last 3 month slog (with only one holiday) until Christmas, when most people have their holidays.
In Europe on the other hand you have your days around Christmas that you have off. I know it is not long but still generally there is a break and around 6 to 7 months later the longer summer holiday. In between some nice holidays and more holidays to start off with (we are still on 15 days here) The change in season changes from summer to winter a hibernation change as I would call it, whereas ours is to gear up enjoy the sunshine type thing.
Due to the seasons/christmas we don’t tend to have the break after 6/7 months after christmas. I think that breaks us all up.
Can’t tell you all how tired I am feeling and it is the busiest time of the year.
I am going to go to bed really early tonight
