It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas..................................

Another Christmas, another year, time for families, and time for cheer........... I hope that this Christmas is sweet, and filled with smiles, and happy moments and full of style. You may not have much, or a huge tree, you may not have huge families, or a lot of holiday cheer, but if you have just one person who cares and loves you much, then you are a lucky person, and you have so much.

As for us, the presents are bought, although a lot less than last year, they are wrapped, and placed under the tree. I have a few hidden away for a surprise Christmas day, our children are still little so little surprises are  still fun. They no longer believe in Santa, I never really encouraged that much. I got really pissed off one year when the fat man got all the fuss. So after that I made sure the best presents where from us, and all the crappy cheap stuff was from the man in fluff.

I can not believe we are here again, and what a huge year it has been. There have been huge highs and many lows, but here we are, and the seasons still come and go. 

It hasn't been very nice for many this year. Break ups, were many, wars to extreme, our oceans are dying, and there is no going back. So no shrimp on the Barbie,  no seafood for us. The ocean is sick, from the plankton to the whale, thank you radiation, you know how to sail. 

Here in Australia it seems it will be a HOT. Today marks the start of a week long HEAT WAVE. The temperatures will be in the high 40's. So hot roasted dinners are out of the question. Good old BBQ, cold salads and desserts, and just us and maybe Missy's new boyfriend, will pop by for a bit. She is spending most of Christmas day with him. His parents are divorced so he will be spending his day doing breakfast at mums, dinner at dad's and maybe lunch with us.....I am exhausted just thinking about it.

I am looking forward to the much needed break. A break from the Christmas carols at work, and the manic crazy stressed customers too. Soon it will all be back to normal, and another year will being. But the wars continue, the suffering shows no end, and good old bloody Oxfam ( Comic Relief ) has been raising money for al the disgusting  cheats. All the good people donating good old hard earn cash, thinking they are helping, when really they are  helping wankers invest in the arms trade, and tabacco, and the poor kids still have NO BLOODY CLEAN WATER!!

The weather is crazy, mother nature is hitting back, comets, metor showers, signs in the heavens........the planet is changing, there is no going back. Fracking, and poisons,  the corporates don't care, they line their pockets, and do it with flare, and now this year it is snowing in Vietnam!

The crews of the aircraft carries who went to help Japan are all sick and dying of a rainbow array of cancers DAMN. It seems the ships take in sea water and convert it to drinking water. They drank, cooked with and showered in radiated seawater, and now they are dying! It is now legal for anyone in Japan to report on what is happening  to the people there. 

So I ask that you spare a moment to think about your world, just for a moment, during your merry making. Think about the children of Syria, who this year will be lucky to stay alive for the day. Be grateful, for you families, and the nice food on your plate. For next year we may not be so lucky, things can change at alarming rates. 

So this year my gift is to be KIND. To show some EMPATHY, it really is no crime, and it's completely FREE. 

LOVE much, and expect little. OPEN YOUR HEART, and spare a simple smile, it could spark a ripple, and it could travel a mile.

Enjoy your loved ones, and never forget to tell them, that you LOVE them, tell them often, for you have today, but you have no idea about tomorrow.

BE SAFE this Christmas, drive safe on the road. We are so lucky, we have much to be happy for this Christmas. May yours be a very MERRY CHRISTMAS....... 

now I will leave you with this funny.......

  1. Ha! #7 speaks to me a little more than it should.
    What if I don't have family? Nor loved ones? Oh gawd, I'm so alone! How dare you remind me of my general loneliness and impending death unknown by any but the stray cats who will pick at my corpse. Fine, I'll love a lot and expect very little. Hopefully this will work out when I dry hump the homeless around me.

    1. I bet you have a friend. You certainly have internet friends. We are all in this little box....my world would have been a very lonely place if it was not for the internet. Even if I don't really know them well, or they live far far away, many of these strangers have made me laugh, picked me up, and made me remember that we are all human and insane in one way or another.

      Today was the cats birthday. I forgot to add that to my dribble above. I got my period this morning, can you tell?? It was a year ago our little cat had kittens. Last week one of her babies had kittens. Her owner didn't even know she was pregnant.

      This morning I found out my friend's boyfriend was cheating on her and they broke up.

      Today my husband was also having his period...MANSUATING!

      I am going to blame the full moon for all the moodiness.

      Smile my girl. Smile. No matter how shitty life gets, someone is always worse off.

      As for the cats....they wont pick, they might use you as a mattress...... lick your hair into place??

      The worse thing people do at times like these is think that everyone is having this movie type family gatherings. When in really they are bored, tired, and really just wish the whole damn day would just go away.

      It is a lot of fuss for a lot of people. Not all families even like each other. Some may even think that you are the lucky one!

  2. Been a big year for all of us and I confess I am looking forward to a few days break after the chaos of christmas.
    Wishing you plenty of happy family time filled with love and laughter.
    Let's hope we get that coffee morning soon

    Hugs xx

  3. It is looking like that coffee will have to wait till next year..........almost like that DATE Richard and I were meant to have last APRIL!

    Thank you, and same to you. I know that your family is close and well adjusted for these festive gatherings. Enjoy my love, and see you in the new year. xx

  4. Wishing that 2014 will be a much better year for you, with many more "ups" and much fewer "downs".

  5. Thank you Don. I hope so too, it was a bumpy ride this year, but I am staying positive and looking forward to a better, healthier 2014.

    I wish you the very best too.
