New Year - Hogmanay




Growing up  we celebrated many Scottish Traditions. My father is from Scotland and we had a lot to do with Dad's parents as well.

I love getting mail...and other cool stuff!

Okay  - if you're not into make -up and stuff you might want to skip straight to the Wedgits link, they are very cool!

Otherwise read on...

I have changed all the bills over  to paperless which means we just get an email reminder when they are due. 
So very rarely would we get a bill in the mail. This means  that most of our mail is fun,fun, fun.

Picture this:

It's Tuesday evening and the Butcher is almost ready for bed. Starchaser is banging around in the kitchen, making a cup of tea. Jigglypuff is trying to sneak out the back door, and when I won't let her, she sits by the bowl demanding second supper. So I call a meeting and say "Listen it's not an emergency yet, but it's only two days until Cat Thursday and JP hasn't done anything cute or funny all week!!!"
