Twas the night before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

Twelve days of Christmas

Welcome Albie



Hi everyone. 
I would like to introduce to you all my new puppy Albie. He is 8 months old.His KC name is Sanja Glenfarclas. He is the sweetest boy, with such an amazing temperament, and has the most beautiful kind eyes. 

Thank you so much to his breeder Margaret Aynscough for trusting me to take care of this boy. We picked him up when he was 6 months old,and he has settled in very well with the pack.Robbie and him are the best of buddies,and create chaos around the house.Robbie is definitely teaching him very bad habits. Looking forward to lots of happy times,and feel very blessed to have my doggies in my life

Gizmo's Memorial

In Memory of Gizmo 

Hi this is Gizmo our beloved Corgi/ Collie who came to live with us in 2004 when his owner died and left us to cause havoc at the Rainbow Bridge in March 2012 at the ripe old age of 17 years. Gizmo is forever in our hearts

During Gizmo's eventful life he managed to scales a 6.5ft fence surrounded by privets and also have a fight with a Renault Megane Obviously the car won and Gizmo suffered multiple injuries and in the process lost his beautiful Cardi tail...

This did not stop our lovely boy, after spending six months in a crate and several operations he was nursed back to health by his Mummy Debra...
Our lovely little man made a fantastic recovery and started to compete in agility at our local dog club, he loves it and got so excited barking happily around the course ... Another one of Giz's pass times was dressing in fancy dress this is him at the club Christmas party with Mum Debra. Gizmo was an advent calender


Gizmo was also chosen to make his debut as a model in the Argos Catalogue along with his little puppy sister Pearl

Gizmo over the years earned himself the nickname Saint Giz by Debra 's best friend Margaret who had quickly sussed that any skirmishes in the home between the doggies were NEVER GIZMO'S FAULT!! hehe....
Gizmo loved and lived life to the full and there was never a dull moment with him around. He loved to okay in the garden with his lovely brothers and sisters, go to the beach and have fun playing ball in Daisy Nook country park.
This picture was taken in Gizmo's favourite place Werneth Low country park this was his last visit before we said goodbye to our little man and we had a lovely day playing with his ball and having lots of cuddles. 
Loved to bits and missed forever this is Gizmo's memorial blog 
RIP sweet boy xx
