I love this time of year. People get all jolly and happy, well that is when they are not stressing about what to buy for people, do they have enough food, is there plenty of booze, is the carpet clean, do I need a new rug, where did I leave my christmas card list? You get the picture.

Today I was reminded that Christmas is but a few weeks away when I dropped by Kandipandi’s blog to see what she had been up to and discovered her latest giveaway which cheered me up no end. Just look at that lovely dog. Any body who knows me knows that I am a sucker for dogs.
After a shaky start to my festivities I am hoping that things start to pick up and I am looking forward to putting up my decorations at the weekend.
