Decorum and good manners


There wasn’t a tree in the house last Christmas; I probably wasn’t mature enough to behave sensibly then, being only a few months old.

I conduct myself with decorum and good manners now and can be trusted to leave things alone when I’m told, so – – – – –

when this appeared,




I allowed myself just a little look at it and what was piling up underneath.




Spike has even more decorum and good manners than me, so he just watched – with interest.




Some of the parcels look veryΒ interesting πŸ˜€




They’re wrapped up well, so until we’re allowed to open them, we’ll just have to guess what’s inside.

I’m very excited πŸ˜€





  1. Those parcels DO look interesting! Bet they smell good too πŸ˜€ You’re both very well behaved with the Christmas tree. We don’t have one as Putney just sees it as a large multi-pronged stick covered in balls and bits of string and paper – all of his favourite things to play with… and eat! πŸ™„ πŸ˜†

    • πŸ™‚ You’re right, they do smell good πŸ™‚

      Spike tells me that one year, before I was born, Mum’s dog, Sadie went behind the tree where she thought no one would see her and ate all the sweets hung on the branches!
      There was also a cat called Emma who used to like tinsel and would pull it from the tree and run off with it, growling as if it were prey!
      So yes, Spike and I are very well-behaved by comparison πŸ™‚

      Two sleeps πŸ˜€

  2. Thomas thinks Amos is being very well behaved. Especially as it’s the first year he has had a tree……x
