Seasons bleatings

I’ve had a couple of Christmases at the “new” Chez Moi now. The kids are late teeners – so I haven’t gone overboard with the whole Christmas schtick. This year, though, Ms Canada decided to buy herself a new “tree” and offered me her old one. The Daughter accepted the invitation and, $20 worth of decorations from the “Reject Shop” later, we have a festive living room.

The only problem is, if we let the ferrets in to play, they proceed to attempt to steal the decorations and pull them, (and sometimes the whole branch) off the tree. We have to put it on a kitchen chair while they’re inside.

    You’ve beaten me to the Christmas bit – I’m impressed. Our tree is now a little tinselly thing – you’d hate it and so would the rest of my offspring. It’s not even out of the cupboard yet! Next thing we know you’ll be making Xmas puddings, cakes, mince pies and shortbread. Uh?

    I’m still holding firm on the ‘real tree’ tradition, ’cause it just ain’t a real holiday less’n somethin’s died for it.

    Ar one stage in my life, it wasn’t a real Christmas tree unless you’d stolen it.

    This involved a late night foray into the Gold Coast hinterlands armed with a hand saw.

    Pine trees are weeds, right?

    Karen took the ferrets into the vet today, and the vet said he’d never seen such a big ferret (Harmonica, the blond). Harmonica has gained a half pound in a month. This would be like me gaining 25 pounds in a month. The vet thinks he could have Cushing’s disease, so we’ll need to a special blood test done, and then I suppose he’d need to be on meds.

    See? Ferrets getting into the ornaments is the least of your weasly problems 🙂

    How much does Harmonica weigh?

    By coincidence, yesterday the Daughter took our two in for their annual checkup and distemper shots. The vet commented on how small they were. The heaviest is only 700grams. That’s 1.5 lbs.
