Muddiest Team and a Crazy Week

Well I succeeded in running the 5k with Reilly and Dude.  It was awesome and we got muddiest Team.  We earned a certificate and a voucher for a drying coat. We got to the last field and Reilly got a second wind, down I went in the muddy field and got covered in mud. I will be doing other races and can’t wait.

My friend and I had ten dogs between us. It was amazing, surrounded by dogs and hanging out with them was amazing.  The dogs enjoyed it and they were exhausted when we got home.

I’ve been watching Tim Burton movies.  Gotta love them, very dark and fun. Gonna snuggle with my babies as I had a lump removed today and it’s stinging. I want to go to bed.  I wanted to update you on the race.

Take care guys xx

Here are some pics of the dogs all tired out.

Get A Grip With The School Nativity

Get A Grip With The School Nativity.

I was watching TV today and heard that schools are abandoning the traditional Nativity play in favour of builders, aliens and even Elvis Presley. Forgive me if I am wrong, but since when did Elvis Presley become a focal point of Christmas? Yes he probably celebrated it, sung the songs better than a lot of our male family members do, but that’s about as far as his contribution goes. Are school teachers hoping that if we do in fact get to a point where aliens visit that they will be so thrilled to have been mentioned as part of our Christmas celebrations that they will worship us for eternity? I think not.

There has been a lot of rumours circulating in recent years concerning the school Nativity play being scrapped because of other religions finding it offensive to celebrate Christmas in such a way. However, unless next year, the word Christmas will be replaced with Builderalienpresleymas then I think they need to realise that the word Christ, in which the nativity is based around celebrates the birth of Christ. It doesn’t celebrate the graduation of builders, the discovery of alien life or even a celebration of Elvis Presley. If that was the case then I would hate to see what Glade come up with as scents to that one, concrete/brick floral perhaps?

 

For goodness sake, enough is enough. The school nativity play has been a tradition for decades in the United Kingdom. That means little kids running around with tea towels on their heads asking where the baby Jesus is and at the last minute, a panicked; red faced teacher running on stage with a baby doll, or in one case I heard about a teddy bear wearing a nappy. So get a grip people and bring back our nativity plays. No, Joseph was not a rapper and Mary did not find her way to the Inn using a sat nav!
