Comfort and joy

First, a newsflash: Santa's toyshop has been shut down, following inspection by Elfin Safety. Boom boom! I thengyow....

I know it's a little late for this year, but may I pass on my top Christmas tip? Don't send cards. Not that I don't like getting cards - I do - but since I've been ill, it's been an even bigger problem to get them all written and distributed than it was when I was well. So, a few years back, I announced that I would no longer be sending them. Instead, I donate the amount I would have spent to the Salvation Army, and it pays for them to supply a hamper and some presents to a family who wouldn't otherwise get them. Plus, of course, it saves resources!

Anyway - Happy Christmas to all my readers, and I hope Santa brings you all the things you asked for. Personally, I know it's unlikely that I will get David Tennant, but a girl can dream...

Tigger is so cute!
And I totally agree on the cards thing and thank you for the Salvation Army idea! I'm currently trying to figure out cul-de-sac Christmas card etiquette after no. 24 put one through my door (and presumably everyone else's). They have no idea who I am (it was addressed to the "family at no. 1", I live on my own!). I had visions of a free for all developing, with all 24 households putting cards through each other's doors... Thankfully most people have been fairly restrained...

PS. Think how many trees and postman's backs you've saved by now doing cards!

I have long felt the desire to send Christmas card money to charity instead, but then feel the need to tell former recipients of the cards why they won't be getting one from me, thus generating the same amount of post ...

Tough one!

And if I can add another awful gag to your opening newsfalsh ...

Why did Santa's little helper have to see a psychiatrist?

He was suffering from low elf-esteem ...

Ba-dom-dom-chaa (that's a rim-shot for you drummers out there!)

PS: have finished hairy eyelash scarf #1 and almost finished h-e-s #2 and it's ALL YOUR FAULT!
