Merry Christmas Evening

A glance down planet of the blogs shows that Irish bloggers have either (sensibly) abandoned their PCs today or are doing the obligatory Merry Christmas post. I’ve left it pretty late but I thought I would experience the clichรƒยฉ while I could! *Happy Christmas everyone* ๐Ÿ™‚

I have had the decorators in to make my little blog a little more festive. This layout seems to load rather strangely and is full of sloppy coding but I guess you get what you pay for these days! ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas Day in my house has been pretty quiet so I don’t have much to report. I am feeling rather full at present after our late Christmas dinner after 6. I hope to have semi recovered by breakfast time!

Judging from the queues first thing last Friday morning in our local Marks and Spencers, there is hardly any food left in Ireland at this stage. Even though the shutters were only going up, with the surge of trolleys rushing forward, I felt like I was competing in a giant game of Supermarket Sweep!

Yes, the shops are complete hell for several weeks leading up to Christmas but most of us get to enjoy the anticipation by the time Christmas Eve comes. Then there is the delight of Christmas morning and the Christmas feast and it’s all over for another year…

I was very lucky as usual and got some lovely presents this year including an e-dog, a cross stitch encyclopedia, a pink leather notebook, a lovely necklace and a rather arty coffee table tome entitled Taschen’s 1000 favourite websites. Hope Santa was good to all of you as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m heading down to G-G-G-Galway to see the New Year in but I shall try and post a bit more before the rat race restarts. Franz Ferdinand say it all:

It’s always better on holiday
So much better on holiday
That’s why we only work when we need the money

Happy Holidays! ๐Ÿ™‚
