Almost There


Well the weather today has been a lot different than this time last year. Dull and a bit rainy, rather than cold and snowy. We polished off the shopping today and took Marmalade for his booster jab and to be microchipped. It is the first time that we have taken him to see the vet. Oscar has been a couple of times now and didn't mind at all. Marmalade was a little reluctant to get in the carrier, but conceded. He moaned a little bit, but I think he enjoyed his first car ride and the ensuing adventure. The vet was kind, but firm as Marmalade tried to leg it.

Well it only remains for me to wish you all a great festive time over the next few days and to announce my favourite Christmas song. It is of course The Pogues and the great and sadly missed Kirsty McColl. Is it really 11 years ago that she had that tragic accident in Mexico whilst swimming in safe waters and was hit by a speedboat? A sad loss to the music industry and her legion of fans. But her legacy for a well tuned pop song will live on.
