Today started out like any other Wednesday.  Taking my youngest to the local farm to pet diseased animals and catch some rare condition from their fur. 
However this week was a special week.  Santa’s Grotty has been opened for the little cherubs and the usual tractor trek is now the Christmas ride.  Christmas ride! Three pieces of tinsel attached to a tree and a cotton wool snowman looking thoroughly dishevelled does not an Xmas ride make.  It was definitely created by a group of disgruntled teenagers with as much passion as Scrooge.
In the evening attending the local residents AGM meant I had a good chance to meet a few of the locals including four miserable old women and the pervy looking chairman.  At least they offered a free glass of wine at the end.
