Christmas and 2008 around the corner!

Beautiful Curvaceous Bali Dancer
Who can believe it? Where has the year gone?
I can't believe how fast this year has gone, and that here we are around the corner from 2008. There I am today wandering around our local Westfield Shopping Centre - Marion, - (believed to be the largest shopping complex in Adelaide according to Wikipedia) watching, looking at all the Christmas decorations, the children sitting on Santa's knee, the older kids hoping for the latest technology in their life, and just amazed at how fast this year has flown!!
I can't believe that this time last year we were planning our trip to Bali. We were planning to stay at The Bounty Hotel and at The Kumala Pantai - the best fun I have ever had with my dearest friend, from Perth. And here we are a year on, planning to put up the Christmas Decorations and do the Christmas thing!! So is it just me, or is it the same for everyone? Does it seem that as we get older that life flows faster? Why is that? What changes about the world - is it the axis changing - is it the clock moving faster, or is it just plain us not wanting to admit we are in fact just running so we can keep up with the Jones', to meet society and its expectations of us?
Anyone wanting to comment please do so? I will be back to finish this deep and meaningful - just gotta go fall into bed! Night everyone.
