No nasty lanterns please, they kill livestock

Tonight sees the annual ritual of eating sausage rolls, savoury eggs and maybe even a chicken curry parcel. As long as they’re not too smelly though as come midnight you’ll find yourself being kissed by complete strangers in either the local pub or friends party. It’ll be hard to leave the house tonight as the heating oil finally arrived today so we’re back to being warm again, and Glyn has already fallen asleep on the settee and it’s not even 6pm yet! Hoping we don’t get any of those chinese lanterns flying over come midnight as the metal bits can be fatal for livestock if they end up eating them and with the animals in mind, we think someone has been creeping about today so we’re all on our guard. Our neighbour came face to face with 2 men this morning who were taking an interest in what we have so here’s hoping the fact we all look after each other is enough to keep them away.  On a happier note, looking forward to 2011. I don’t do resolutions, but one thing I’m consciously going to do is leave any negative feelings and people well and truly in the year 2010 and taking only good things and relationships with me into the New Year, so with that in mind, here’s wishing you a very happy one,  and here’s to whatever 2011 has in store for us.
