Happy Holidays!

“Thank you for your email.

I am on vacation and will respond to your message as soon as possible when I return to the office on December 29th.

Happy Holidays!”

Are there any words in the English language sweeter (for the writer) than these?

We’re getting ready to leave for my sister-in-law’s place, and are frantically filling the car with clothes, ski gear, snow chains, and lots and lots of prezzies! There are wrapping paper off-cuts and boxes all over the house, which is more fun for some than for others:

"Um, Dr. Schrodinger? We may have a problem..."


My nephews have been IMing me every time I log into Facebook for a couple of weeks now, wondering when we’re coming and why we can’t get there sooner – well, they just have a few more hours to wait!

I hope all my readers have a wonderful festive season full of family, friends, feasting and fun, whichever holiday(s) you may celebrate!

    Happy holidays to you! That photo is priceless.

  7. Laurence Cox says:

    Happy holiday, but you should have really taken a picture of one cat in two places simultaneously!

  8. Grant says:

    Happy holidays to you too.

    I wish I could think of a clever caption for a silly photo I have of my cat and do the same, but nothing comes to mind 🙁

    It’s a great shot, too, how they both are looking straight at the camera.

  9. Hmmm… I think I need to be using “prezzies” more in my day-to-day speech.

    Happy holidays, Cath!

    Thanks all! I hope you’re all having a wonderful time!

    The key to getting both cats to look at the camera at the same time is to make increasingly weird and frantic clicking, humming, and assorted other noises while taking multiple shots in the hope that one of them will be in focus and cute…
