Oh my goodness, what happened to Christmas?

Goodness me – wherever did Christmas go?  All that planning, the preparation …. and now it’s over for another year – how can this be?  I hope that you had a wonderful day, we most certainly did.  Daisy simply ADORES Christmas, (all those turkey tidbits and doggie chocs!) and was very pleased with her new Christmas collar …..

Sounds like you all had a fun time. That is lovely about Ben being the dog on the moon, Happy New Year now, but you’re right, what did happen to Christmas? Although us as a family have another Christmas with three of our grandchildren on Friday, so looking forward to that.
