My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
October is a busy month for me. Due to my husband Kevan's work schedule, our Summer holiday got moved to the end of September. A nice rest before the fireworks begin in October; three birthdays, Thanksgiving (Canadian) and Halloween!
November 5th is Bonfire Night here, formerly Guy Fawkes Day. His family usually do a backyard bbq and mini fireworks at one or another's house.
As for Christmas, at this point, I've pretty much got the menu worked out (we're hosting Kev's family's annual get together this year). The rest I'm writing down as I think of it.
Oh my word. Is it really just 138 days til The Big One?

Every year I have a Christmas party at my house with all of my close friends. My family is very close and we have all kinds of holiday activities that we do together. This year my daughter will be a Freshman in college(way out in Arizona, 3,000 miles away) she leaves on August 23, and will not be back until December 15th! We will have a very Merry Christmas this year, although it will be hard to decorate without her!
Now the fun begins with you and your little one. Good luck with the move....
The 25th of Nov is my birthday and I'll have the cards sent out the day after Thanksgiving, the house is getting decorated then as well as the outside. The dinner is already planned, just have to find the right kind of wine for it. Only 130 + days to go! I can hardly wait.
Back to you Dawn...... I wish I get over there to see my cousin in Northampton. And the other cousins in Sussex. But take it one day at a time and enjoy the holiday.
