Santa is on his rounds (his chief Vet has given the reindeer the all clear), and I have just treated myself to my Christmas bacon sarnies as I managed to find some English bacon this year. I’m writing this as I watch my favourite Christmas films the Santa Clause 1 + 2 + 3. However I am also aware that it is my second to last Christmas here – for me this is a little bit sad.
What makes me really sad though is that my first winter here is that it snowed from October until March, it looked something like this everyday for the entire 5 months…
I was really excited for my second Christmas… But there was no snow…
My third Christmas? Maybe the second was a fluke? Nope. Still no snow….
My fourth Christmas this year, I’ve not even need a scarf yet. Today I went out wearing my sunglasses without even my beanie.
As with Santa they say seeing is not always believing, but believing is seeing. Sometimes I think there can be coincidences – however a complete change over multiple years? Enough said?
For me however it is a chance to sleep tonight, as for tomorrow morning like many other vets around the world I will be one of those working to help those animals that are unfortunate enough to need our help on this Christmas Day.
Here is hoping you, your family and pets have a safe and Merry Christmas.
