It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Halls are decked, trees up. Cards posted, just the neighbours to be written/delivered the weekend and a couple of last minute pressie to buy.

I smiled to myself and thought 'lucky girl' when I spotted this card in Clintons the other day. The store was quite busy so I had to stand a bit awkwardly, close to the card racks so that people could get past me, and snap it close up with my phone.

Then I heard on the tv news later that Clintons were in trouble over one of their humour Christmas cards which depicted Santa on a council estate, apparently Clintons apologised and removed it from sale. I wondered whether the card I'd snapped had been produced in the UK and, if so, whether it's subject, humour or not, might offend that bunch of idiots who have been laying down the law recently about certain adult practices. I hoped it might and that Clintons would tell them to bugger off if they made contact.

Have a fun weekend.
