Happy Christmas 2023

Happy Christmas. It’s been a cracker, I have had my icy swim, lots of lovely grub, a few beach doggy walks, and now for the swan dive onto the sofa and some TV binge watching….

My home looks like Santa’s grotto and my external Christmas lights are impressive. Even my neighbour remarked on them.

This year everyone has made much more of an effort with their lights and Christmas decorations. I love walking Buzz&Finn late at night to see all the different lights, flashing, twinkling, and sparkling.

I am feeling festive overall but can vacillate between joy and sadness as the day has glimmers (the opposite of triggers) as well as triggers.

Buzz and Finn look pretty cool in their Christmas jumpers too. My favorite movies to watch at this time of year are


  1. The Sound of Music
  2. The Wizard of Oz
  3. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

I have been watching them all since I was a little girl and I still adore them and know all of the songs.

This year my friend and her father watched It’s a Wonderful Life, at The 1920’s ( One hundred year old) Art Deco Stella Cinema in Rathmines. We had such a lovely time as I had forgotten what a lovely movie it was.


Happy Christma

All the best

Stay fab
