Evening all

I am home, me and the GPO wish you all a very merry Christmas

I have cheese & biscuits and a glass of Merlot with the Carols from Kings on the tellybox

I shall try and pop in tomorrow once I have seen the FGO, I think I shall cycle up there

Poor old Chuggs, all this repeating herself, do you think dementia has set in!?

We've had a lovely day nice lunch a few games up to the park for carols

I shall be in the lounge all day tomorrow, but for those not about I'd like to wish all my WAISTer mates and very happy Christmas, but more importantly a healthy 2013
Up at 5 for pressie opening
Don't be late!!

All day !!!

I was up at 5 this morning thank you very much and I have no intention of being awake at that time tomorrow

I shall go and play on my bike for a few hours and then I shall go and feed my face for a few hours and probably have a snooze !!

I thought you would have been more organised Daffs  

24/12/2012 at 20:25

Well it'll be just me and the kids and they wont want to be talking to me!! If it's not raining I might just be able to drag them out for a walk!!

Or shut them out and lock the doors for a couple of hours !!

24/12/2012 at 20:42

I've done that before...

24/12/2012 at 20:44

Perhaps I should explain, they were toddlers, it was raining, we'd been shut in all day...
I put their coats on them, gave them each an umbrella and pushed them out the backdoor !

Oh thats just pants ... the trouble with this time of the year tho is that people are genuinely sick, loads of bugs going round our place and we are on bare minimum so if someone goes off we are schtuck

I am off to bed in a mo I think ....   Need to sleep before Santa arrives 

24/12/2012 at 21:49

Me organised Meldy, you must be feckin joking. This is the first year I've actually sent cards (At all, usually even family don't get them!) and the first year I've actually BOUGHT all my presents before Christmas And my mum's still needs a few hours of crocheting before it's finished!

Oh, and I was meant to be spending the evening making some kind of baked confection for breakfast, and making a nut roast, and chopping parsnips or summat - none of which I've even started yet...

24/12/2012 at 22:05

On the up side - Santa is currently in Chad and heading to Libya - not long now!

24/12/2012 at 23:02

Ooh - best I go to bed then

Sweet dreams all and I'll see you all tomorrow at some point no doubt

24/12/2012 at 23:53

Best had Podds - he's in France now!

Think I was meant to be making stuff for dinner tomorrow.... although now it comes to it, I can't be arsed... Toast anyone?? 

24/12/2012 at 23:55
Merry Christmas everyone. Will try and call in tomo, if not Boxing Day with race report .
Hope you all have a lovely day xx
24/12/2012 at 23:57
Bed time here!

I know what you mean Melds but Mr Spence overheard a conversation during which one said "oh just ring up and say your backs bad, they can't do fu*k All"

He needs Snaily up here!!!

Oh bu99er, it's repeating again! Sorry. 

But lovely to see the Sluggsies )))) Trust Christmas will be totally opulent on board ship---we shall want ALL the details!


The 'first Christmas' is always tough, especially coming so soon. Hope you all manage to find some nice moments in it all. 

Podds, only you could have a 'six-hound perambulation'! Sounds like a VERY exclusive  sort of adventure holiday ))

Daffs, Podds is right. If Mr Daffs won't even TRY to get better, you owe him no sympathy! (I have the same thing with Mr C....!!!!)

Nogs, don't forget it will be specially tough for FIL and you are both doing a great job. 

We have to dash off to watch chickens, sheep, stars, shepherds, and other assembled livestock mill about the church...! xxx

Ignore the above. An evil fairy accompanies me wherever I go, repeating whatever I say..... but more importantly:

Merry Christmas, lovely WAISters!  Sounds like most people's plans have come good, even if there were a few minor mishaps (Tubs' flowers, Daffs' cards, Mr Spence's not-so-loyal colleauges). 

We are as ready here as we're going to get. Crib service duly enjoyed (makes the House of Commons look orderly and polite ), big puffy baked apple pancake duly consumed with a bottle of bubbly, midnight service sung, turkey in the low oven, just have to put the prezzies under the tree and the little things in the stockings and I can fall into bed not long after 2 am. This is the best moment of Christmas: all travellers safely arrived, lighted tree shining in the dark, all the exciting anticipation at its height. I'll enjoy it for just a few minutes, then head bed-wards. 

Whenever you see this, HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL  xxxx
