Christmas In The Eyes Of A Dog | Short Story

Mommy and daddy brought back what smells like a tree but it doesn’t look like the trees at the doggy park. It doesn’t have orange and red leaves. It doesn’t have a sweet smell and gives me apples. Did daddy dig it out? Doesn’t he know that mommy doesn’t like that? I could’ve helped him too. We could’ve dug and dug till we found the treasure. My brother leaves me yummy treasures like treats all over the yard. Maybe it’s a good thing daddy dug the tree out by himself. They moved the tree around all over the house before placing it high up in the sky. I can quite easily reach it. I’m a big boy now. They did something strange to the tree. It will suddenly just light up. Mommy played around and the lights did all these crazy things. It was scary and strange. I don’t mind the normal lights. It’s nice and warm. I like sleeping right below the lights. Mommy gets so happy and takes my picture. I’m a good boy. They also hung up a lot of balls on the tree. It wasn’t my usual play balls so I got quite excited about my new toys. There are so many of them! Mommy and daddy didn’t like when I licked the one ball. They called me a bad boy. It made me sad so I gave daddy a big kiss and cuddle. He couldn’t stay mad at me. I’m too cute! The tree kept growing and growing. The bottom of the tree has all these different shapes and sizes. One of the new funny shapes smells nice. It looks familiar and I know the smell but I’m not allowed to touch. I don’t like this tree. I’m not allowed to play with the toys and run around in the living room. And then one day it was suddenly different. Mommy and daddy took some of the presents and seemed so happy. My brother got yummy treats and ran away with them. He doesn’t like to share. Mommy took the yummy smelling present out and helped me unwrap it. It was strange. I didn’t know what mommy was doing but boy was it fun. I could immediately tell what it was. It was a bone! The biggest bone I’ve ever seen in my entire life. It’s so big that I can’t even carry it! I licked and licked on my yummy bone with the twinkling lights in the background. Maybe I don’t mind this new tree.

PS. I will upload pictures of Dankie and his bone on here when the Christmas rush is behind us. I will definitely have it on my Instagram and Facebook for those who can’t wait.

Edit from future Cassy

Speculoos took ownership of the bone and now Dankie is to scared to eat it.

How I Got My Fairy Light Wall In Two Easy Steps

I don’t know about you but Christmas makes me feel all warm and fluffy inside and the main cause of this is fairy lights. It’s just something of the twinkling lights at night that makes me feel incredibly happy. I knew that I wanted fairy lights inside my house all year around. The month of December isn’t nearly enough. Honestly I can have fairy lights in every single room. I really have to stop myself but to be able to fully enjoy the fairy lights there can’t be too much of it. Anyway the point is I wanted a fairy light wall and I liked the idea of having it behind my bed. It just makes the bedroom feel all romantic and our wall was a bit wonky and needed it. It was uneven and an eyesore so well fairy lights was just the perfect touch. Also fair warning this blog is really short. There isn’t much I can say to make the blog longer. It’s just that easy.

It’s ridiculously simple to make the fairy light wall. You need fairy lights, screws and a see through curtain. That’s it folks. I told you it’s really simple. The set up is just as simple.

Step One

Screw in your screws into the wall. You want a little edge to poke out so you can hang the fairy lights wire over it. You put it in a zigzag pattern and depending on the length of your fairy lights and how wide your wall in and the coverage you want, will influence the space between the screws. Oh wow that was a messy sentence. I honestly can’t remember the length of the fairy lights we got, I honestly bought the longest one I could find. We spaced the screws by 30-40cm.

Step Two (even though step one and two can switch quite easily.)

Are you ready for the shortest step ever? Hang up your curtains. That is it.

A fairy light wall is incredibly easy and quick to do and I love ours so much. We put it on every single night for about a hour and I can’t imagine our bedroom without it now.
