Casting an eye over Christmas

Well that's it, another Christmas has trudged by and as is often the case I find myself Taking a little time to cast an eye over the whole thing and asses my gratitude.

Right here right now I seem to be getting the greatest of satisfaction from my nice new sheep skin slippers!!! Yep that's right slippers. No longer do I need to search for a mighty high, a twisted and deformed view of reality. Oh no, all I need are a pair of sheepskin slippers.

It's been a good Christmas, yes it has.

I wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to you, but it is so difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without giving offense. So I met with lawyers, and on their advice I wish to say the following:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2012, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great (not to imply that our country is necessarily greater than any other country) and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual preference of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely
transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no
promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for
her/himself or others, is void where prohibited by law, and revocable at the
sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected
within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one
year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever
comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance
of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

Disclaimer: No trees were harmed sending of this message; however, a
significant number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced.

The unusual width of his nose!!!

It must have been over two years ago when along with Mrs D, I went to our Doctor to point out Jacks eyes were not quite pointing in the right direction. In the usual way these folk do we were told in a quite possibly patronising fashion that he was fine and that in fact his eyes only looked the way they did because of the unusual width of his nose!!!

Turns out this was no the case, not at all. The poor little mite is now going to need glasses until he is at least a teenager, this I must report upsets me somewhat.  Partly because I cant help thinking if they had done the job right when we raised our concerns this might not have happened, and partly because I don't want Jack getting any stick at school because he has glasses.

In truth there is probably very little I can do about any of it. Nevertheless I still need to put in place the necessary  plans to strike down with great vengeance and anger on the first bastard who dares to call my little boy four eyes, specky specky speckerson  or any variation of the above.

Today I got to go to Jack's first nativity play and it was absolutely amazing!!! For the most part he sat picking his nose and gazing into the distance, yet in my eyes he was the most talented and wonderful child on the stage.  He's the one on the left, second row with a red scarf and what looks like a pair of pants on his head. I am a proud Daddy and no mistake. I honestly believe I'll always be that way, I hope so.

Just for a change.

It would seem I'm spending just a little to much time at the Dentist of late. It's not that I dislike the chap, in fact he's quite nice mostly. It's more a case if enough is enough.

This time round I find myself sitting here so he can asses the damage done but the Hospital last week. I guess I should be happy he can see me so quickly, yet oddly enough, I'm not. Even more strangely, I'd rather be at work. Still at least I get the chance to bolg a little.

Thank you me.

Monday it was, bloody Monday and my mouth is still hurting like a Bastard and its Friday. I so very much want to spend some more time wallowing in my little old pit of self pity, oh yes, oh yes in deed.

However, I guess I need to be careful with that sort of thing so instead I'm gona say a little thank you for my new bike, thank you for my new bike.

Not sure who the thank you if for seeing as I paid for the thing, me I guess. Thank you me.
