    I’m going to try it, sadly not tonight as intended though. I drove all the way into town battling Christmas traffic and horrendous rain. Spent £80 on stuff I didn’t intend to get but forgot the pork scratching! Doh!

    I must have had the wrong sort of upbringing for today's world because right now I am so angry I don't have enough sense to be scared. I'm blind to the threat that is the future. If I posted the cause it would appear laughable. But it has built up and built up and today was the straw that broke the camel's back and I am not wise enough, nor star-literate enough, to have a clue what is coming.

    I thought about packing up my cat and guitar and going away to the little town for Christmas, but the only pet-friendly hotel there will be closed over Christmas and the rooms have neither fridges nor microwaves so even if I bought groceries at the shop around the corner on Christmas Eve, I would have no place to store them.

    I just walked in my door with the plan to defy the sheer thoughtlessness of this place by decorating my place for Christmas, but I don't have the heart to do that. If this be treason against the Heavenly King I will just have beg forgiveness. I am old, and I am tired of this madness. As Auntie Mame sang, "I need a little Christmas" but I can't seem to get it.

    Oh no that is heartbreaking. I cant fathom why those folks can be so thoughtless..whatever happened to peace and goodwill to all men (and women obs). I hope you will find the strength to do even a scaled down version of what you wanted, if nothing else to not let them win. When I am really pushed hard unfairly I am always surprised the inner strength I have to defy. I am right behind you and the KC and wish you could magic carpet to us.

    Thank you, Mother of Penguins. TBH I'm not sure you would want me around right now! :)
    I've been sitting here wondering if it's just me -- if I'm overreacting.
    If it weren't an insult to felines everywhere, I'd almost think our managers are all cats:

    Thank you. I wish we could visit.
    I know quite a lot of people who live here and never participate in any of the programs or other activities put on for us, because they are so fed up with management that they have no desire to participate. I have several friendly acquaintances whom I see only at scheduled social gatherings, others I see everywhere BUT, and still others I see only occasionally in the elevator or at the local grocery store. So maybe it's not just me ...
    Hug and purrs. :) ^. .^

    I’m so sorry for all the stress and worry you’re having to deal with at the moment Saskia. It’s really terrible, especially at Christmas. However on a lighter note I love that cartoon, I can’t wait to show it to my daughter tomorrow. She has both a dog and a cat and will relate to it instantly.
