I Told You There Was A Santa ..... and a Christmas Goat


It's been a busy few days and collapsing at the computer yesterday I spent far too long over a coffee, a mince pie and Facebook, but sometimes you come across the most wonderful things on there.

I have copied this for you to have a read of ... in my opinion it is PERFECTION  :-)



Reverse Advent - Day 25 - Final Day

I bought a goat, .... well to me a virtual goat but to a family overseas that need a goat to change their lives it's a REAL goat.  You've got to love that as for little as £12.50 you can help to turn someones life around.

(All Oxfam Unwrapped gifts are currently half price with Oxfam Partners funding the other half, see the post two days ago for the link directly to the website.  There's still time to buy something and send your recipient an e-card in time for Christmas Day.)


And to the person with the decidedly un-Christmas spirit that doubted my gifts were real and were in fact just images taken from the internet for use on the blog .... my cards that prove I have bought the chickens, the water and the goat arrived yesterday.  Nothing else to say!!

  1. Goats are the best people. We know a couple of local goats and every time we walk past they're stood on top of their goat house!

  3. We've bought some Oxfam unwrapped presents too - but a couple of weeks ago, so they weren't half price :( - but I did use my nectar points!
    No idea why someone would doubt you - with the foodbank donations you talk about and the Live on £1/ day thing you do, it's obvious you care abut others
    Have a good one! :)

  6. Who indeed would doubt you? It doesn't matter anyway as long as you know what you've done and I have admired your idea no end and thought to myself it might be too late now for Advent but maybe I could do something similar just because ... and not for any particular season. You have been an inspiration.

    I remember my mother answering my question about whether there was a Father Christmas or not in a very similar way although she didn't write it down - I can still see us outside the grocer's one snowy day in late December back in the mid '50s as she answered my question! Have a lovely Christmas - I look forward to reading more about your life in the country - something we always hoped to do but never did!
