As Christmas rapidly approaches, it will soon be time for our coaches and finely tuned athletes to take a break. For athletes...time to party with non alcoholic drinks, buy their friends presents for Secret Santa and their lovely parents who taxi them around all year. For coaches/parents/grandparents...book the chimney sweep if you have an open fire 'cos if Sants gets his freshly laundered outfit dirty, there 'ain't gonna be any presents coming your way.If you have a gas/electric fire leave the front door key under a stone and a message in Elfish as to where it is ( don't want Santa knocking on the door and waking the little darlings up ). Also time to buy presents, write cards, buy more presents, write more cards to those you forgot in round 1 of writing, shop for the mountain of food and drink, plan all training sessions for 2017 ( oh yeah !! ), decide where to go for... Christmas dinner, Christmas tea, Boxing Day morning and Boxing Day walk, visit Boxing Day friends....and then party !
