Merry Christmas – Goodwill toward men

Bruce Wayne wishes Alfred a Merry Christmas

In the words of Bruce Wayne – Merry Chrismas – Goodwill toward men …. and women

From Jonathan and Mandy at Fabulous Photo Gifts – we wish you all a very happy holidays and look forward to catching up with you all in the New Year.

Whatever your plans, please drive safely, drink responsibly and spare a thought for those less fortunate than yourself.

p.s – If you have an elderly neighbour who you know is on their own, please take a minute to stop by and see that they are alright. One of the most enriching Christmas experiences I had was one year the local ‘meals on wheels’ service wasn’t running Xmas Day. So residents were invited to cook or serve up an extra meal and deliver it to a user of the service.

We were assigned our ‘neighbour’ and duly turned up with a piping hot plate of food with all the trimmings etc.

What we found was a frail old lady living in a bungalow on her own. She had a cat (that had messed several times throughout the house and her, obviously living where she sat.

We spent 10 mins clearing up after the cat (our own dinner was also being served), and when we went back later with some tea and to collect the dishes had another tidy up for her.

She was so grateful – we felt good about ourselves – and you know, after all the excess of Xmas, it didn’t cost us a damm thing. One person can make a difference!

      you’re absolutely right sarah – I remember Christmas as a kid – all the excitement – all those presents but now I get even more enjoyment from watching my own kids open their presents and the loved ones around me.
