    Please be advised that anyone planning to dash through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh, going over the fields and laughing all the w...ay are required to undergo a full Risk Assessment addressing the safety of open sleighs. This assessment must also consider whether it is appropriate to use only one horse for such a venture, particularly where there are multiple passengers.
    Please note that permission must also be obtained in writing from landowners before their fields may be entered.
    To avoid offending those not participating in celebrations, we request that laughter is moderate only and not loud enough to be considered a noise nuisance and therefore must not occur after 11pm and before 7am.
    Benches, stools and orthopedic chairs are now available for collection by any shepherds planning or required to watch their flocks at night.
    While provision has also been made for remote monitoring of flocks by CCTV cameras from a centrally heated shepherd observation hut, all facility users are reminded that an emergency response plan must be submitted to account for known risks to the flocks.
    The angel of the Lord is additionally reminded that prior to shining his/her glory all around s/he must confirm that all shepherds are wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment, including Eye Protection, to account for the harmful effects of UVA, UVB and the overwhelming effects of Glory.
    Following last year’s well publicised case, everyone is advised that EC legislation prohibits any comment with regard to the ‘redness’ of any part of Mr. Rudolph Reindeer. Further to this, exclusion of Mr. Rudolf Reindeer from reindeer games will be considered discriminatory and disciplinary action will be taken against those found guilty of such an offence.
    While it is acknowledged that gift-bearing is commonly practised in various parts of the world, everyone is reminded that the bearing of gifts is subject to Hospitality Guidelines and all gifts must be registered and where necessary, taxes and import duties paid as appropriate. This applies regardless of the individual -even royal personages.
    It is particularly noted that direct gifts of currency or gold are specifically precluded under provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Further, caution is advised regarding other common gifts, such as aromatic resins that may initiate allergic reactions.
    Finally, in the recent case of the infant found tucked up in a manger without any crib for a bed, Social Services and the Local Authority Safeguarding Board have been advised and will be fully investigating. The RSPA are also seeking reassurance that no donkeys were harmed during this incident.
    Compliance of these guidelines is mandatory in order for you to fully participate with the festive spirit. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas (but bear in mind this must be under 107 milligrams per 100 millilitres of urine or 35 microgrammes per 100 millilitres of breath if driving – UK, Wales & Northern Ireland).

    Such lovely photos! Mickey and Minnie look like such good friends, and Sootz is as handsome as ever. We had a beautiful tabby litter at rehoming today, so friendly and cuddly! Still prefer the oldies though.

    The grandkids are with us until lunchtime on Christmas Day which we're all looking forward to. As for cooking I do as little as possible, but hubby hasn't bought any extras on the shopping so I'll either have to dash to Asda in the morning or do some baking. I know which I prefer!

    Merry Christmas everyone. xx

    A big Merry Christmas to everyone.

    My family are coming to my house for Christmas Day but not until part way through the afternoon as Gee is now working as a ward clerk as an apprentice in NHS Administration. She will be working half day but what time that will be will depend on circumstances on the day.

    I will be at the head of the table, banned from cooking, that's the best gift ever. Food cooked at daughters' and ferried the hundred yards, including their three cats!

    I nearly missed getting my Christmas cards into the post. Family kept reminding me it was all happening next week. Plenty of time, I thought! But they forgot to say it happens on Monday! I actually caught the postman doing the very last collection for three days, putting my cards into his hands. Then back home found a card I had not picked up. Fortunately this is to a very elderly relative who is very confused, so not time aware but will still enjoy the card next week!

    So lots of fun and joy to everyone, have a great time.

    Lovely pics - and Elfin Safety notice - NN! Did anyone successfully use curling ribbon on their parcels whilst a cat was in the room? I didn't...
    Happy Christmas, everyone; and a peaceful and happy new year. :heart:

    Hi there every one......... Lynn and Diane so good to hear from you both xxx I hope every one is having a good time and got some nice pressys and delicious food. Thank you for the card CC it did make us chuckle xx and yes Mickey was such a pain when it came to wrapping and ribbons. I had to put him outside a couple of times to be able to get on with things. I am now having a nice rest after doing the boxing day roast. Im going to get Crochet hook and some yarn out in a wee while as I have missed it for a few days !!!! Mallory comes next weekend for a few days so I got to leave decorations up a few days longer than I normally would.

    Hello everyone, didn't realise I hadn't been here for a couple of days. Wasn't well over Christmas, had no voice, but it's back now. Tickle cough and runny nose are driving me mad. Thought about calling in sick but if I do I can't go to rehoming and we only need to reserve 2 more cats to get a joint personal achievement of 200 cats for me and Jen for the year, 50 more than last year!

    I've given up on ribbons and bows Ollie. The cats chew them off the presents and then produce sparkly poop!! I've been crocheting cat blankets NN for rehoming. Every cat gets a wool blanket that goes with them when they leave so that they have something with their scent, so thought I'd make a few.

    What a nice idea, Kate. Poor things, it must be so confusing even though they're going to a lovely new home.

    That cold's a vicious b*gger, it's been doing the rounds here too. I've been left with one runny nostril! Hope you're feeling better soon, chicken. :heart:

    What a lovely idea Kate. you will have to post a picture of one so I can see what you are doing then the size. I have plenty of oddments I can use to help you out when I get a moment to spare.
    • CommentTimeJan 1st, 2018 8:58pm (Jan 1st 2018)
    The ones I've done so far have all ended up being different sizes because I'm guessing! I'll take a tape measure with me on Saturday and get proper sizes. They don't mind about colour, stitch, wool, weight, knit or crochet, but all offerings are welcome and appreciated!

    That is a fabulous idea. So thoughtful for the kitties.

    Today it wasnt so stormy and we had a nice window of no rain and some sunshine so we wrapped up warm and went to the lakes to feed the waterbirds. So many seagulls though must still be rough out to sea.
    • CommentTimeJan 4th, 2018 11:13pm (Jan 4th 2018)
    Hope you had a lovely day feeding the birds - we have loads of seagulls here in Birmingham but don't think it has anything to do with rough seas, more like easy pickings!!

    • CommentTimeJan 8th, 2018 8:42pm (Jan 8th 2018)
    yes it was good to get out Kate. We usually have a few there that have probably never seen the sea. But there were so many it was amazing and so noisy. The stormy at sea thing came from my Dad thats what he used to say when so many appeared all at the same time xx
    • CommentTimeJan 9th, 2018 8:40pm (Jan 9th 2018)
    Ah, that's very logical NN, I haven't heard that before. I can see why the gulls would come in land when it's stormy.
