Evening all

Sounds like one hell of a day Seren! Soon you can relax and enjoy the festive season.

My new job is another temporary one at Swansea university.  Handy as its only a mile away

Boffin - hope life on the farm is going well

5 trolleys! Did you have them all articulated wandering around like a big snake - or have a dedicated trolley park? That is some extreme shopping - I know you like long arduous events, but didn't figure that stretched to shopping as well! There can't have been much in that store you didn't buy - I think the store manager should bring you those few items you couldn't get himself out of penance for not stocking them, and utter respect to your shopping dedication.

Fantastic! You have to be well set for christmas now

Life on the farms is good Nutty

Nice not to have to commute too far for work, how long is this temporary contract?

Boffin. we filled up a couple and then left them with customer services until finished.......I actually love doing the shop as I have saved all year for it and i love getting posh sausages and posh stuff instead of the smart price versions

Well done Seren.  Every race seems to be a bit of a mud bath these days!!

Temporary contract is for three months. 

Another wet day but at least we are here to see it!

Morning folks.

The rain was really awful. I have a culvert in my garden which was up to it's banks. Had to unblock it too.

need to get on the bike today..deciding whether to chance going out or to go to spin classes or to go on the turbo

I had a visitor who had been staying for a couple of days and needed to get back to Cardiff. We took her to the station to get the 5pm train and picked her back up again at 6pm - no trains at all and no replacement bus service. There were people there from West Wales who were en route to other parts of the country, don't know what you do in that situation if you don't have the money for a hotel. Our guest has spent another night with us and I will have to drive her to Cardiff this afternoon if they haven't sorted it out by then.

Weather is bad for sure but the results in terms of travel and people being flooding. After 2" of rain the country should not be in mayhem. I blame years of under investment in infrastructure and over development.

"I blame years of under investment in infrastructure and over development.".....

Yup, me too. Maybe because we are such a small country, but compared to the rest of Europe, we have got an awful attitude to investing in rail, and that's both main parties and every administration I can remember.

Nice run today though! Started out grim - too much curry last night and general overindulgence all week made me fat and sluggish. Luckily enough, both Mandy and Linz were in the same state, so we plodded along together moaning gently till we warmed up. Felt good in the end though and it's the only possible answer to mince pie disease!

Plus the Swans are 1-1 at HT as well Tracey.

Evening all

Hope your friend got home safely Tracey.  At least it was dry outside today.

RK - it seems incredible that everything should grind to a halt so quickly, I agree...

WA - hope the problem in your garden got sorted.

Christmas Eve tomorrow - it will soon be over

morning all - this time next week it'll be just about over and done with - I know it sounds a bit , but this over commercialisation really gets to me.

If anyone knows of a shop that doesn't blast out cheesy christmas songs for 2 months of the year, let me know, I'll do any shopping I have to do there!

Funnily enough Sue... I popped into Tesco in Sketty yesterday and they had VERY loud music blasting out of a little CD player by the tills. It was that horrid stuff that Alex sometimes subjects us to - what's it called? Acid-dub-house or something. Very odd.

So far this year, I have had an epic game of Trivial Pursuits, some good nights out with friends and watched Cabaret with my family (several of whom had never seen it and were completely delighted). Yes there's far too much money spent and food consumed but I'm taking the best I can from it and enjoying myself.

Don't know if this will help?

I have enjoyed catching up with everyone this year too.  Steered clear of shops as much as possible as I dislike the materialistic nature of it all.

Lunch with family today.  Very jolly and the baked cheesecake I made was very tasty even if it was like eating lard with all the ingredients!!

Have a great Christmas day all and look forward to catching up again soon

Evening all and Happy Christmas

Kitchen is full of food - Let Foodmas begin Took the calves trimmings from the parsnips / spprouts and carrots - all home grown - they enjoyed their Foodmas

Sweetie made a pudding just for the children - basically it was chocolate, cream, caramel condensed milk and icing sugar on a biscuit base - awesome!

Wishing you all have a good, safe Christmas.

My Christmas has been like an eatathon!! Enjoyed

Sounds like life on the farm is good Boffin.
