Just when the energy is flagging,
and the desire to unpack yet another box has completely disappeared...
all it takes is finding your magic wand,
the good pliers and some push pins,
a smoke alarm for those impromptu oven moments,
the favourite lip balm, a shell from Stinson Beach
those thank you notes that were alluding you
(because far too many thank yous have not been written lately)
some colours to inspirate...
OH, and the favourite highlighter pen,
an extra iPod cable (just in case and because you never know)
life just feels like it will carry on
just as it should,
and those dreaded boxes begin
to look like Christmas again.
