Tis the season to have too many things to do at once. With that in mind check out these fantastic shopping breaks and the chance for some solace at two first class spas.
 
Dear Recipinet
Tuesday 12th December 2006

The seasonal marketing talk that sloshes around every Christmas about recharging your batteries and the like kind of makes me want to reach for the wall socket and plug myself in. We've heard it all before. The truth is that Christmas is more about maintaining your sanity through the in-laws invasion, the high street shopping scrums, the short winter days and cold winter nights. I don't look like the Energizer bunny but I do need to do my Christmas shopping and take a break from the city from time to time...
