Tell you what though, I shall be looking for a nice couple of logs (got some in the garage somewhere) onto which I will fasten some fir cones and holly and will ignite the fire pit on the appropriate day and stick some candles into jars.
Yay! Where's the sausages.....

I like TV's use of winter solstitial festival. I tend to wish people a cool yule at this time of year.

The Bag has had the fortnight from Arghhhhhhhh-Land. She has been shouted at, sworn at, humiliated in front of a colleague and treated like something rather sticky and unpleasant. At one point I the Bag was crying so much her whiskers got very stuck together and she was unable to drive home until they dried off. She has had to chase a significant amount of unpaid fees in order to pay for emergency electrical work in the Bag Cat Basket. Was on duty from 07.15 - 17.15 for ABRSM session yesterday - setting up the room (takes AGES because the person responsible for said room leaves it in an embarrasingly awful state), accompanying, stewarding, grovelling nicely to examiner (lovely boy - looked about 12) and smiling a smile that progressively got more and more like that normally found residing happily inside a padded cell and a straight jacket.
So, collapsed in a heap with half a glass of bubbly last night but fell asleep (unsurprisingly) and woke this morning to find said half glass still there. So, at 05.47 I washed my vegan sausage down with said beverage. Oddly enough I now feel buoyant and enthusiastic for my 10.30 home pupil.......
Fa la la....

@Bagpuss - enjoy the buoyant feeling and let the other stuff take care of itself. Live the now; this moment when you feel good thing... People can be unthinking and do unkind things. I fear sometimes they just don't (for whatever reason) put sensibility (or brain) in gear and they don't ask: How would I feel if someone did that to me?!!!! I'm now hoping the rest of the day and the weekend are jolly, fun and filled with kind people!

I echo wot Zixi sed, Bag.
Personally I feel like telling most of the world to *go away* just at the moment.
That desert island looks increasingly attractive...
