Seasonal [Dec. 14th, 2016|01:47 pm]
Tony Grist
I gave way to pressure- mainly internal- a couple of days back and put the Christmas tree up. I like the twinkling lights but nobody else does.

The horses' owner just delivered them some Christmas cheer in the form of a  load of hay that smells like a brewery. I guess its been laid up in a barn fermenting...

We have one or two people we need to send cards to. Ailz just dealt with a couple by way of Moonpig. I understand Christmas card sales are down this year because why would you send cards to people you're constantly twittering at?  I'd be glad to see the back of them altogether.

Christmas is like a big feathery duvet pulled up around the ears- cosy, comforting and restrictive.

This is a bit sickly sweet. I think it's been hanging about rather too long.

I'm hoping that it is in fact silage (or haylage) and not fermenting hay. You'll have some very poorly horses if it's hay that's started to ferment.

Oh...

Well I trust these people know what they're doing. They're horse people; they should.

She's right "fermented" hay can make the horses really sick. Here's hoping it's not the hay that's got the rot. I stopped sending Christmas cards long ago, this will be our first year without a tree. I officially handed the Christmassing off to my adult kids this year.

My first wife is the one who does Christmas in our family.

I am usually "the one" but it's time to pass the torch.

But...but...I love Christmas cards! They are so pretty and so decorative. I don't understand why you dislike the practice.

I don't dislike the cards as such; what I dislike is feeling under an obligation to send them...
