Well, it was when I first sat down to write this. But then I hit the buffers, and all thoughts of merry & bright dribbled away. But, being someone who’s lived with the ole black dog for a while, I have my methods for recovering – so, even if not brimming with joy, equilibrium has returned, decorations are up, and most of the presents have been wrapped. We’re planning to spend the big day with my daughter and the grandchildren, something very much to look forward to as my granddaughter – at age 4 – is extremely excited about the whole thing, somewhat to the horror of her neat-freak father 😉
One of the things which made my smile return was this snap I took at a recent seasonal market attended by that peculiarly English tradition -a troop of Morris dancers.
I only noticed later that they were named the Rampant Roosters, despite wondering why so many of them appeared to be wearing chicken heads 😉 With the return of Sex and the City, it was inevitable that my mind went to those infamous Rabbits….
The other item which caused me to laugh out loud (behind my mask) was this little treat. While queuing for festive stamps in the post office to affix to my ever so late cards, I was browsing the (non-festive) cards, and there it was, bold as brass….
😀 😀 😀
May I thank you for your company during this less than perfect year and I hope you get to spend the holiday season in the way you’ll enjoy the most 🙂 I look forward to seeing you again in 2022.
