A little girl asks her mother, please mummy can we have a cat for Christmas.
Mummy replies, no dear we will have a turkey like everyone else.

Hi,

The wx was iffy beginning of November when we arrived and we had the mosr horrendous seas for a week with heavy rain. All over the news with 30ft waves washing balconies away on the north coast.

Since then the wx has been brilliant sunny and warm. Long may it continue however it could go pearshaped in 5 weeks time I hear :)

If they were really genuine answers in an examination then there can't be much to say about the present day education system in the UK, can there? Since the demise of the Oxbridge examination system the standard of education in the UK has gone down an awful lot.

I was a product of the Oxbridge system having gone through GCE 'O' level and CSE exams back in 1969 and I can genuinely state that the Oxbridge system was a far better system than the one that is in place now. There's to much emphasis on examinations for pupils of all ages. Teachers should be actually teaching instead of filling out forms for this and that. There is far to much paperwork altogether that it's no wonder teachers in the UK are 'burning out' well before their time and you're getting answers like you received in your joke, Edward Bear!

Just under 5 weeks before we arrive back in PdS on 11/01/2019. We're really looking forward to it at this stage with the miserable weather we've been having over here in Ireland over the past few weeks. We're just hoping that we don't get a repeat of the same type of weather we endured during early February of this year. The first 2 weeks we were here this year the weather was absolutely beautiful, but no sooner had the wife and family departed that same night we had rain and wind for most of the following week with a slight respite over the weekend and then once Sunday night came it was back to wind and rain with a few days respite for the last 3 days, before I returned home.

Has there been any bad weather yet or has it been sunshine and blue skies all the way, so far?

Anyway, may I wish everybody who contributes to the site a very Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year and Hope to bump into some of you during our time there. Feliz Navidad.
