drunken ramblings at almost xmas

I'm almost at zmas, it's just before xmas and I'm a bit tipsy and an ickle hyper and possibly a bit maudling too.

Plus my spelling has gone to shit. It's the booze I blame and the short days. If you saw the amount of words I've had to correct in the previous sentences you'd sentence me to spelling school.

So on the plus side I've had a drinkie and I'm feeling happy. I bought some random shoes and they're very nice so that's nice. Finally bought the kris kindel, I hate kris kindel, it's unnecessary and a bit annoying. Wouldn't it be nicer if people in my work just liked each other enough to go for a casual pint instead of 52 weeks of hatred and one day of gift swapping. Nah, kris kindel is for sadsers, of which I must be one if I'm partaking.

But the shoes I bought are nice.

light and peace

Stormy weather has howled across Dublin, leaving no leaves on trees, fences knocked over, garden tables strewn across lawns.

It's winter, we're cold and it seems to always be dark or half dusk.

We crave light and sun and an end to the evenings.

And then, after hard work and visits to the attic or the depths of the store-cupboard, a plug is put in the socket, the electricity surges. Flats and council houses flicker and sparkle with the shiny christmas lights.
