We got a leaflet in the post the other afternoon. You don't get post in rural Ireland until the afternoon. The leaflet was advertising coal and oil filled radiators and wild bird feed and Advent Calendars for DOGS! Please!!
We all love our pets and apart from their dinners I wouldn't mind being a dog. Is that why I always want to go a walk? But surely to goodness its time to draw a line in the sand (or snow) and say enough is enough. Our canine friends get the best seat next to the fire and half the Christmas dinner which we made enough for an army for. But then again your dog deserves a treat. Especially if they are loyal like our Fido the Jack Russell terrier.
Christmas Day is a Monday this year, I think? It's going to be a very long weekend isn't it? Why can't they just call it Christmas Sunday and celebrate on the nearest Sunday date to the twenty fifth? It's too easy isn't it? I have always wanted to go abroad for Christmas and see it from a different and much warmer perspective. Have you even been abroad at Christmas? Where is warm at Christmas?
