Why's everybody who's not a teacher on Christmas hols???? Some of us have to work you know!

Going back up the thread a bit - if Spence said it, it was meant to be rude!

I've had a Christmas party (jumping up and down a long time to play musical statues is the perfect occupation for one particular boy - you know - that one!  ... perhaps we can do it every day?)

Then I had my eyes tested at Tesco and did the big food shop and I'm hoping not to go out again (except to work - did I mention I still have to go to work tomorrow?). It wasn't too bad which is just as well as I don't do crowds and fighting over the sprouts (not that we are having sprouts, or turkey - a rather expensive cut of beef fillet instead!). And I've iced the cake.

Now I'm looking online for something to print off for tomorrow (yes, I'm still in work tomorrow ... )

Poor Pippette is home from the Midlands after working on a shop refit and has done way more hours in 3 days than she's contracted to do in a full week! But she has staggered out tonight on enormous heels and a tiny dress to the police Christmas do! Mr P hadn't realised she was home (he'd convalesced with an old friend over a pub lunch when she got in), but I hoped she was as someone was in our shower ...

Err hmmm - you're not the only one - and on less than a teacher's salary with less hollibobs....despite being more highly qualified than just about anyone else in the whole place......guess that actually makes me rather stupid doesn't it 

however Mr P is home and I've fallen asleep in front of the tv again so it's off to bed for me........

Sweet dreams all and here's hoping the catsick fairy doesn't pay any more visits (or the dogsick one for that matter )

Well spotted Pippi!

I have to do some food shopping tomorrow, better get up a bit earlier!!
We are having a family, the 4 of us, Christmas dinner on Sunday. I'm thinking fish and a trifle and a bottle
I shall buy a Christmas pud in the sale Boxing Day
(I wouldn't normally go food shopping Boxing Day but as Mr Spence is working and the shop will be quiet)

I'm guessing you go back later than us Pippi?
21/12/2012 at 00:15
I'm working tomorrow too! (although it'll actually be 4 hours of crocheting on the train and a one hour nice chat...)
21/12/2012 at 05:06
Cup of tea anyone!?
21/12/2012 at 05:18
I might as well get up and brave Tesco!
What's the betting it'll be as bad as a Saturday morning!?

I'm working - and Monday! We'll be trying to cram two clinics into the morning, I just hope everyone turns up!

Then I'm working Christmas Day, but that's a sort of voluntary affair. I get to recover Boxing Day, then back into clinics and catch up on Thursday!

I have booked New Year week off, but now I'm thinking it may be a mistake. I have loads of staff off sick - well, three (plus a doctor) at the moment, but out of 20 that's a lot!

I fell while out running last night, some idiot had left an old door laying across an unlit pathway, i was on the floor before my brain registered I was falling. A bit bruised, but nothing broken. I am being personally trained this morning, that'll be interesting with a sore shoulder and bruised ribs!!!!

Poor dragon! hope you're feeling less delicate soon

Tea for me please Spence! We did morrisons at10 last night, wasn't too bad actually! Good luck...

You'd be welcome here on Christmas day Meldy, although if there's any hint of cat sick you'll be out on your ear!

Best get up I suppose, trains to catch, yawn...

Oh Dragon, have some {{{{{{{{Dragon}}}}}}

Tesco was great

That's it now!

Morning each,

Good luck to those travelling today.

I have a job to do in Oxford, then back to one of the villages, then home.  should be done by lunchtime with luck.

We're going to SIL's later to take her and partner out for a meal.  he's retiring from work so we felt we should mark it with a bit of a do.

It'll be full on Christmas shenanigans thereafter,  We have guests ( get me - guests!) coming for lunch on Sunday, then stayers arriving Sunday, Monday and two grandkids coming on Tuesday.

Where's me chainsaw?

I'm amazed that Spence hasn't made any chopper jokes what with Noggs and his chainsaw and tree felling

(((nog gob))) I'm deputising for nurse sluggy and she I'm sure would prescribe the topical application al alcofrol

Of course I understood DL's toater over reference... ahem

Snaily, spence is right, abstinence isn't the only answer  - unless that suits you

Awww, M....edly, work are a pain. You are of course welcome here too for chrimbo dinner - not sure how the GPO would fair with the lady of the manor but she's a little slower off the mark with her limpy leg

(((Sue))) Are you sure you should be running around unlit places -  you might scare someone  Sounds a nasty fall so take it easy.

I would like to point out that excitement got the better of me yesterday and I am actually working Chrimbo eve too.

Larry, I think Tesco and ASDA delivery blots are probably booking for next year already! Send Mr Larry out with a list - not sure what he will return with but at least it will keep him out of trouble for a while

 Chuggy, best you keep away from WAISter gatherings - you are not allowed to shatter my illusions and let me see your halo at a jaunty angle.

Podds, tis my intention to toddle down NYD and waddle  - shall have to see how mrs D progresses - I shall check her paws - corns did cross my mind although I did check her pads - will put my binoculars on and take a peek - fab news for DG and his poorly paw

I have pacels to collect and food to buy and a gift for father to sort

Spence  although it might have a nice mottled, blue cheese like effect - if you can roll it that is
