Lollypop stick and Sellotape?
No they have cheese on them.
Right, I'm quite nicely lubricated now, what better than to get a bit of fresh air and see if the girls on the farm next door have left us a few double yokers...
Don't read any euphemisms into that.
I like sprouts too, must be a old guy thing
There were no eggs!
Dave, they're evil.
Christmas dinner wouldn't be Christmas dinner without sprouts and chestnuts!
The stuffing and gravy are my favourite bits.
Sprouts, and apparently salt and vinegar crisps the way D is banging on about them this morning.
Right.... have a good one everyone. Eat and drink too much, leave all the wrapping paper on the floor and stab the sprouts with a wooden stake.
I took your advice - well most of it, have definitely eaten and drunk too much today!
I drank too much, but you put kk in a pub with a free bar for the day and the inevitable happens. I do remember telling Josh Lewsey (name dropper that I am) that his dog was fat, but he explained to me that it was depressed.
The day started well, but then not so good. After all the present opening I decided to take fur face for a run. So we headed up out of Truro, at the big roundabout by Truro College I heard a screech behing me, the kind made by idiots trying to race away from traffic lights. Upshot was he lost it on the roundabout, car on two wheels and then spinning out of control towards me. There was that awful moment, when you think it's going to hit you and there's nowhere to go. It was our lucky day and it kept spinning ending up blocking the road. The male driver grinned at me and drove off, with his two small kids in the car. Meanwhile behind him was a big bang, in trying to deal with it one of the cars behind had gone straight up the backside of another car with a baby in the back seat. The two women drivers started shouting at each other, through shock I think. My legs were jelly at that point, Cole was hackles up barking at the whole thing. I then calmed the women down, checked everyone was ok, gave them both my phone number and told them that they should report the driver to the police. We all hugged and then I kept running. It could have been a hell of a lot worse.
The rest of yesterday was fun, lots of food, drink and laughs. I played barmaid again and am proud to say can still pull a perfect pint. Lots of rugby talk and Santa turned up for the kids.
I think I've managed to kill off our 22yr old nephew, might not see him until midday!
Today will be mainly eating, drinking and I'm going to try to get everyone out for a walk... Oh and some good films starting with the Railway Children at 9.30. That was made the same year I was born.
It was a lovely dog, I wanted to take him home!
O...k...a...y... Apparently I was very entertaining last night and there is a reason why I have a huge bruise on my knee and my ski jacket is covered in chocolate and cream. Oh and my 'riverdance' was captured fully on someone's Ipad.
And I didn't do so well in the husband carrying game.
We've just watched Mr Stink and had a huge cooked dinner again. This afternoon is given over to watching films and generally loafing around.
I wasn't supposed to carry my husband, I was supposed to climb over him as he did a press up and place a mince pie the furthest away from the step his feet were on, without touching the ground myself.
I lay on him, said 'Move then!" and flung the mince pie across the room.
We didn't win, bloody rugby drinking games!
Well, we're home and have just dropped our nephew off at sister in laws and had a very nice meal and entertaining evening.
I managed to run with Cole this morning before we left Truro, and we went our usual route. When I got to the roundabout where the accident (not really an accident, more incident) happened, I looked again and right where we were standing the car had actually broken the curb. My memory had it coming towards us but not that far. But it did...
Well today has turned into a slob and watch films day, 'Aliens in the Attic' is fab yet the kids have gone outside, J just rollerbladed down the stairs on the way out. Granted we only have 5 of them but she made it somehow.
I went to do the food shopping this morning in a very random mood, so we have eclectic food for the next few days... Lots of duck, maybe that was rain inspired?
Not that the poor buggers I bought are going to be able to swim very far.
