Christmas is fast approaching


Down under

T’was the night before Christmas and all through the house nothing was stirring, not a noise could be heard, except for papa who was snoring

The children were in bed giggling and laughing to excited to sleep because Santa Claus would soon be there………however, sleep won out and sleep they did………….

When all of a suddenly a noise was heard from outside the house…………the noise of reindeer, on lawn eating, the reindeer food left out for them.

Leo & Blain jumped out of bed and looked out the window, their eyes so big and round because they could see reindeer and where there was reindeer there would be Santa.

So out to the lounge room they sneaks hoping to see Santa, and there he was placing toys in their Santa sack both started to giggle and Santa turns and looks at them sternly………………and shoos them away.

He says not a word but continues to place toys in the sack, looking back to make sure they had gone, however they were still there just very quiet and hiding………………..

When the toys had all been left he drinks his beer, eats his cake, smiles snaps his fingers and the door opens and out he goes…………..

The boys run back to the window to watch him leave, he jumps in his sleigh and says…………….Now Dasher & Dancer, Prancer & Vixen , on Comet, on Cupid, Donder & Blitzen dash away, dash away all.

Into the sky they rose and as they drove out of sight Santa was heard to say Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.


Cheating is a choice, not a mistake, and not an excuse.

If you decide to cheat, and you succeed in cheating someone out of something, don’t think that this person is a fool. Realize that this person trusted you much more than you ever deserved, and they learned a lesson about who you really are.

The above is something I saw somewhere, don’t remember where but thought it was so true I would save it and use it as a blog post so that is what I am doing today.

So here is the question for today, have you ever cheated?

I had to give this a lot of thought because to be honest I don’t remember ever cheating, but I am sure at some point in my 51yrs of life I have in fact cheated, I never cheated at school there was no point as I was often the smartest kid in the class and I have never cheated on Tim that is just not who I am. But I am sure I must have cheated at something at some point in time.

Although I have never seen the point in cheating maybe if I was one of the dumbest kids in class I might have felt different and as for cheating on Tim well I love him so much and have never met anyone who has even tempted me to do so.

I really don’t understand why some people cheat on a spouse or girl/boyfriend, if you are in love with someone why would you want someone else.

As for cheating on exams well you really are the one who is going to end up behind the 8 ball because as some point you are going to have to know the answers you copied so doesn’t it make more sense to learn the stuff and not cheat.

I have wondered at times how a cheater teaches their children that cheating is wrong, for them it is “do as I say not as I do”……………………..
