Nothing is very easy at the moment, so it can only get better. Christmas is one of the most stress filled times of the year, so I am trying to take it easy. I am now in the throws of taking over the complete household. We always split the responsibilities at home, but Mr. Swiss is getting older and I have now taken over most of the tasks.. I have discovered that planning is the answer to most problems and today we have so many helping articles: smart phones and computers are certainly part of it for me.
This week I was busy buying a new car, and dealing with all the bits and pieces that belong to the purchase. I managed to fit some shopping in, in between, and also dealt with the housework and I am enjoying it. I am also learning how to deal with stuff, that I always left to Mr. Swiss. He is there as a support and advisor, but doing it on my own is giving me a new view on life. Tomorrow I have a discussion with the car insurance guy, do some Christmas food shopping and perhaps I might even fit some me time in. Today I dealt with my british income tax details. Once a year they send me a form to complete to find out where I am paying my income tax. The only complicated part was when I had to call the office in England to clarify a small detail and they kept me waiting on the phone for 20 minutes because their people were occupied. However I was eventually connected and dealt with the problem. I can make my life as easy as possible, but as soon as others are involved it begins to get complicated.
