    Happy Holidays everyone!

    Happy Holidays everyone! Whatever you celebrate, have fun and peace, hug the people you love, and watch cheesy movies: my basic plan. Plus, decorate the house . . .

Obviously I am kidding, girls!!No, seriously, all I want is not to have to get up first to let Puplets of Loveliness out, and to get a cup of coffee in bed! See, I am a simple creature.

    Hello folks,Merry Christmas everyone – or whatever holiday festival you celebrate! I hope it’s filled with family, love and happiness.Of course, family celebrations can so easily be filled with arguments over the remote control, and why everyone got you socks again when what you wanted was a book voucher, which is really an argument over your place in the family and goes back to when you were seven, but hey . . .Breathe. In and out. Slooowly.Yes, 49 years on the planet, and I am ... read more
