POD'S FIRST CHRISTMAS



Yes that is me trying to grab the baubles with my big brother Day-Day. I loved the tree and all the sparkle, and one time when I was older (about 4?), I am sure that when I wondered downstairs in the night and slowly opened the living room door, I caught the fairy flying around the room giggling. There was glittery dust everywhere. I went back to bed and I never told anyone, until now.

I used to get one or two pillowcases full of presents. This year I haven't enough to fill a sock!! But pity not, I want for nothing other than folk to be happy!!




I am looking after an old doggie called Bernard PhD, and we just had a very peaceful stroll through Coopers Park (except for when a twig touched my leg and i thought it was a deadly snake...stiffled scream). It's a little oasis of calm near where I live. There is a fantastic view over the city, and then the stone stairs (known as the stairs of death when I run up and down them) drop steeply down into a gully, complete with running stream and lots of lovely trees and ferns and old mossy stone bridges. It is raining!! Not quite the Sydney Christmas I had in mind!! But it is still nice, infact I felt the rain rather cleansing. It was so nice to have some peace for a while. I wanted to write something about the spirit of Christmas bla bla, but Letty, bless her, made a great job of that. Suffice to say that I miss my family and friends, and I miss Little Moth, as I know that many of you will be missing your own 'Little Moths' too. Let us celebrate the love they gave us, and the love around us that we all receive from our families and friends (even if we don't receive it in quite the way that we want it!). It is sometimes easy to give and not to receive, so open up and let it in I say!! I know for sure that some think they are not loved, but they really really are!!

I am missing all my mates!! I miss the silliness and laughter, but I shall be raising the odd sherry to those present and not!! Love each other, love yourselves, coz Pod loves you!!

Keep it sweet

xx

Oh and Bernard says Woofy Christmas too (he has fallen asleep with his head under the washing!)

Funny thing is, it's raining here in Florida too! And JDZS says it's raining in Seattle, and apparently it's raining where Inconsequential is...hmmmm...so where is it NOT raining?

That's a really great-looking park. And I love the old snapshots. :)

Have a great holiday, Pod and all his commenters!

What a beautiful post - and - what a beautiful little boy you were. Of course you saw the faeries. From the looks of your death stairs and the surrounding park, my guess is you could stumble upon some faeries right there. Happy holidays and yes a sherry to you, too!
