Ye-es. Thought they were all the same thing, really (although that's probably the sort of thing that gets all the Druids and other latter-day celts and wotnot into a lather.)
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.....

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! wink.png

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...
