All things Christmas (sorry, but I'm feeling festive)

Ooooh, you live near Woolacombe beach?!?!?!  Soooo jealous, I love it there!  Have very fond memories of summer holidays learning to body board there.

 Nice.  And it's always pretty quiet out and about on Christmas morning too which is even better.

By the way, I didn't post this thread twice, my forums page went a bit bonkers.

I haven't for the past couple of years as I've been struggling with a joint issue, but this year, I may venture out with the pooch (on a lead, of course) to do a little jog/walk. I find that it makes me feel better about eating Christmas dinner later on and sort of sets me up for the day.  Anyone else.....or is it just me and the OH??

Also, what do you do for Chrimbly dinner?  Turkey or an alternative meat?  My mum always makes mushy peas (from the dried ones you have to soak), so it's tradition now that we always have it - I can't remember a Christmas dinner when they weren't served up.  Does anyone else have any foody traditions that others may brand 'weird'??

I just want to murder the children on Outnumbered - particularly the younger boy.  I don't have kids and this programme reinforces my life choice!

Lots and lots of different cakes and pies brought into work by colleagues for our MacMillan coffee morning.  I've spent a fortune and am stuffed, but it's honestly been the best Friday in work ever!  Plus, we've already raised well over £200!!!!! 

Tell em how it is

First time I went to New York I found them surprisingly chilled and friendly on the whole.  But then I did grow up being exposed to the idea that New Yorkers were either fat cops or less fat criminals.

Excellent. Did you use the Subway? There was a whole piece in the Guardian yesterday about how difficult it was to understand.

I figure If I imagine it's like the western end of the Met line it should be OK. 

I went on the subway when I was there and it was fine as far as I remember, although I do recall it feeling a bit creepy and expecting Keanu Reeves in a black raincoat to be using the payphone!!

Also, the people were lovely and the best thing we did was get a breakfast bagel every morning for three dollars which was big enough to be cut in half and saved for lunch!  That said, when I was there the exchange rate was two dollars to the pound, so most things were a bargain!!!  Great place though, I'd love to go again. 

What counts as a running obsession?

Posted: 26/09/2014 at 13:09

I wouldn't say you are a running obsessive - to me, if you were running every day or more than once every day, then that might just be more like obsessive.

I quite enjoy the time my OH goes out running (roughly the same sort of schedule that your're on) when I can catch up on all my programmes on sky plus without any eyebrow raising or sighing!!   I earmark that as 'me time' so we both get some benefit.

So, An Un-united Kingdom Awaits

You go for it Mentalist.  And while you're at it, keep up the childish name calling and nastiness, it really endears you to people and helps them to see your point of view.
