Seasonal Cutbacks …

… with a Ho Ho Ho here and a Ho Ho Ho there … as we approach the end of 2013 my financial situation is what might be termed static and so I am resorting to e-Cards and messages on my Social Media to spread my seasonal good wishes to all.  However the e-Card is still a bespoke handmade one featuring a wire wrapped seaglass ornament.  I have only made one gift this year and it is a set of five different seaglass Christmas trees – so I made it do twice the work and featured it for my card too.



However breaking news tells me that I am not the only one making cutbacks … in a shock revelation it turns out that Santa has had to make the reindeer redundant.  A spokesperson at the North Pole attributed the cutbacks to the appallingly wet and windy weather and the ice storms which are causing a global transport slow down for Christmas.  Fortunately some replacements have been found.  

We caught up with these compact reindeer imposters as they rested before their global mission and as we can see they are hopeful of being rewarded with socks full of biscuits!


To all my friends wishing you the warmest Christmas filled with the love of friends and family and peace for our battered world.

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
