Have a good Christmas everyone!



It is at this time of year that my thoughts turn to Accounts and to pissing off my accountant by giving him my paperwork on the 29th January 2008. It's forensic science, my accounts. Something weird happened in March and in June, as there are huge blank swathes in my records. Still, receipts are more or less gathered together....this is the bugger about being a self employed hippy. It took me 5 years to start writing down who paid me what..I found it help me notice when I hadn't been paid :-)

Merry Christmas Lilith - and accountants are there to be pissed off as far as I am concerned!

Merry Christmas Lilith x

Lilith said...

Merry Christmas Splund. Yes, quite so. I don't really need one, except that forms and columns of figures make me glaze over and get panic attacks.

Lilith said...

To you too, dear Pip :-)

fuchsia groan said...

Merry Christmas to you and yours Lilith.

A pox on accountants. A necessary evil unfortunately.

Lilith said...

And the same to you Fuchsia. Sorry you are not blogging :-(

I see my accountant as a medical expense...saves me coming over all neurasthenic.

*twitches*

Merry Christmas Lilith!

I think I saw Pig's cousin down at Snape Maltings earlier - he was sporting a very nice pair of reindeer ears. Cute!

True Blue said...

Merry Christmas to you and Yours Lilith and, a Happy, Prosperous, Peaceful 2008.

Love and "stuff to Pig Pup too xx

Di and all at Chez Trubes. xx

Hey Lilith -th -th -th;

Don't worry; just make it up eh?

I'm in the same boat, and have put a day by next week to get on-line and do the biz...! My code reads like an installment from The X Files!

Have a good w/e - and care ye not!

A very merry Christmas to 50% of my readership.

My blogging career is suspended. I wasn't putting in the hours.

Merry Christmas Lilith.

Remember, a turkey is for Christmas, not for life.

Tuscan Tony said...

Happy Christas Lilith, the first with the new mutt. Hope he doesn't blow himself chewing the tree lights...

Lady Jane said...

Happy Christmas Lilith!

Tuscan Tony said...

ummm....rereading my comment, that should have read "...blow himself up". *coughs*

accountants keep you honest said...

The splund (and others) might be best advised not feature Chris Rea on his site before attacking accountants.

Lilith said...

That's rather oblique, AKYHonest, although of course accountants, at my level of opperation, do keep you honest. Chris Rea is Michael Levy's mate, and I am pleased to say, has entirely passed me by.

Lilith said...

Ed! Did you? Pig has a girlfriend already. An 18month old Patterdale/Collie cross like him. Her owners got VERY excited when they met Pig. So he has an assignation being planned for the future ;-)

Lilith said...

Thank you Trubes! Is your back fully recovered? I hope you will not be standing cooking. x

Lilith said...

Thought you might be in same boat Scrobs...it can actually be quite interesting when you get down to it. I find all sorts of ways in which I am being fleeced/selling myself short/getting a really good deal, when I start to look at the figures. But it's the getting down to it that is the problem.

Lilith said...

Oliver, you are too modest. What has happened to your dear wife? Are you celebrating Christmas alone?

Lilith said...

Fuchsia, you have a life. It's OK :-))))

Lilith said...

Killemall, Festive Greetings to you...I have an idea you are in the East? Here's hoping the sea level does not rise 10 metres in 2008 :-)

Lilith said...

Tuscan, we have dispensed with lights this year. In fact we have more or less dispensed with Christmas. But Pig has been getting quite hormonal of late.

Lilith said...

Christmas Greetings to you Lady Jane! :-)

electro-kevin said...

Happy Christmas to you and your accountant.

Dennis said...

Merry Christmas, Lilith, and to all chez vous, & ici to boot.

Accountancy is the work of the Devil and I recommend you forget all about it over the holidays.

True Blue said...

Kind of you to ask Lilith about the back. Will be seeing Consultant in the New Year, Decision time ! Either Cortisone injections, if they don`t work, I will "fall under the knife" Cripes !
Not cooking Xmas Day but am on Boxing Day but the Three girls will help, so no great worry re Back. I shall sit in t`kitchen drinking Champers proffering advice(only when required). We always have a good giggle on these occasions, particularly when we`re "popping corks !
Again Lilith have a very Merry Christmas and thanks for being such a good "Blogging Chum.xx

Di.xx

P.S. Our new Pug GranPup, Rocco, (aged 12 weeks) will be visiting too, I wonder what our v.pampered Puss Chloe, will think of him ? Hmmm.......I will keep yàll posted.
Have fun.D. xx

The Hitch said...

Do what I do.
fake a mental breakdown,
It works .

Scroblene said...

Lilith; put those numbers down and go and get a drink!

Nobody's going to care now, so relax...eh?

Have a lovely Christmas, and enjoy Pig's antics while you breathe in the evening air, and breathe out the Chateau de Dieppe Nouveau ('76)!

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Merry Christmas, Lilith!

May peace and plenty be the first to lift the latch on your door, and happiness be guided to your home by the candle of Christmas. (A Celtic Blessing)

(Remember: at midnight Christmas Eve all animals can speak—or so Alex the cat told me at midnight tonight).

Lilith said...

I don't always have to fake it Hitch. Christmas has that effect on me.
