If you care to read any Post this Christmas – read this one !
Mostly I love this time of year. But when my chief ” elf ” Colleen gets in touch with me and says – that despite her best efforts – she is still finding it hard to find ” helpers ” for BAGPACKING tomorrow and wednesday – my Christmas Cheer – soon disappears …
Please find yourself below :
I didnt get the message ?
I didn’t get the email !
My phone isn’t working ….( convenient )
I don’t have a computer ( not my fault )
I don’t have a phone ( ho ho ho )
I don’t know how to get the posts ?
My MUM didn’t pass the message on !
I didn’t read the blog – (again )
I don’t read the blog – ( ever )
My team leader didn’t tell me ( her fault )
My Depute never told me ( his/her fault too )
My shadows didn’t tell me ( who are they again )
I don’t talk to my team mates ( ?)
I don’t have any pace contacts who can pass on messages ever!
I don’t go to PACE ( do I?)
I’m doing anything else
I hurt my wrist and can’t carry things
I can’t stand still for more than half an hour
I’m going on holiday the exact day of all the bag packs
I don’t know if I’m allowed ?
I never bag pack on principle !
I never bag pack because those same “others” will always do it for me ….
I’m not a ‘ sook ‘ in PACE
I don’t “court favour” in PACE
I hate bag packing period.
I don’t want to make a difference to PACE fundraising ?!
What even is PACE fundraising ?
I don’t go to PACE for bag packing !
Why should I have to ?
What difference will bag packing make to my life ?
Who cares anyway…
Naughty …naughty …naughty !!!!
And now … redeem yourself below :
I’d get the message about a party
I’d get the email about me being offered a part in a project / show / Connections
Sorry have to go my phone is buzzing , tweeting , snapping Pinging , bleeping …
We were on my fiends/ aunt / cousins computer last night and saw this amazing clip on you tube …
Read the post about Connections , can’t wait for next year so hope I get in to this!!!
Told mum she had , had to let me know when she got the email about the Panto cabaret / tickets for ?/ my christmas delivery
The blog about Panto team photos was so cool …
That blog the team leaders did was so cool …
My team leader is so cool and inspiring
My depute is so lovely and helpful
My shadows and I are going out together before Christmas again, we get on so well…
My team mates are like family ..the team chat is awesome
we talk about everything on the group page
I’m so glad I go to PACE ..its an important part of my life
I’m so glad I don’t have to go to school
I get to stay up later , sleep in a bit
I have a bit more free time now , with only show calls to be there for…
I feel great!
Feels good to relax and go with the Fesive flow
Wish I was going away on holiday over Christmas
Allowed ..yeah …I’m in secondary !
Things that I care about , I totally make the effort for
My turn to walk the dog ?
I like to make a difference to any bigger picture
I like to let them know I care about the stuff that goes around and about the projects here
I’m not just there for shows and praise
I understand PACE could still “go under” if we don’t take the time to do the little things to help keep “a buffer ” of money to tide PACE over at financially challenging times of the year
The recession isn’t over in this country – that’s obcious by the high street shops still closing
Is it true PACE could still close its doors tomorrow – wow that’s a thought ?!
Where would I go if I wanted to do the same thing? Panto for instance?
Maybe I’ll give this bag pack a go
Maybe it’ll help
Maybe it’ll bring in some valuable cash flow for my future in PACE
Maybe my presence will be noted for the right reasons
Maybe this will go some way to showing others how much I care
Maybe an excuse is just a symptom of me not caring enough
Maybe I’ll be NICE this year
After all …It’s Christmas!
( guilt trip ! You bet ! )
Now please ….get in touch with Colleen ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and have a really ” good” excuse not to help us out over the next two vital days of this Christmas bag pack for PACE – I’d hate to have to make an excuse to myself , as to why I should think less of you , for not …making a bit of an effort …when so many of you expect me to “extra” help you next year!
Two way street remember !
Dragonfly , Connections process , STS resting Right Start, Next Steppers and “time outers” …this if for you too … Team Leaders take note – your team numbers on shift here reflect a caring attitude on stage and off …
Grab your comfy shoes and Christmas spirit and head for Marks and Spencer …
Simply Food , Pacefully packed!
