DON’T FORGET DECEMBER

I feel sorry for December. It’s always hurried along and full of the business of getting the year finished off roundly on top of getting prepared for Christmas and holidays and having to put on bathers. Its days are overhung by that forgotten something feeling. The younger members of the population just don’t want a bar of most of December – “How many sleeps ’til Christmas? When’s school finishing? Do […]

MERRY EFFING CHRISTMAS

I’m trying so hard not to overthink Christmas and just enjoy the tradition and cheer. But it’s like when I’m listening to rain on an iron roof and trying my best to enjoy it because everyone bangs on about how lovely rain on the roof is when really I’m worrying for all the people who don’t have a roof, and the cows and horses and sheep all out in the […]

Things That Get Me Through

I am living through possibly the busiest time of my life. We’re about to move out of one house (and leave it in a civilized state) whilst trying to finish another house that we’ve built to move into, it’s nearing Christmas which brings social occasions, obligations, cards, shopping and general panic.

This year, for […]

(I was desperate for a broken arm, plaster and a sling for years on account of all the attention it would buy me. I know.) So I figure since it’s been that long and […]

Pondering On: CHRISTMAS

So Christmas isn’t my very favourite time of the year. I guess that was evident when I posted this song about this time last year. I know, I’m just an old humbug with no spirit (except a bit a gin and tonic on Christmas Day). It’s not that I don’t like my extended family – they’re lovely –¬†and I do enjoy the smell of Christmas lilies. I even have an […]

The Christmas Song

To all my dear Megoracle supporters, friends and followers, 2012 isn’t over yet and there may well be more from me this year but I just want to take the opportunity to thank you for supporting me and my lil’ old blog over the last 12 months (in case I get overwhelmed by the needs of my family and the mayhem that is year’s end). I’ve really and truly had […]
