    Mornin'!

    Wish I could feel the festive spirit as I did of yesteryear, but I don't, so Bah Humbug!

    Anyway, Merry Christmas to those that do from a miserable old git.

    Good day all, Merry christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy hanukkah, whatever it is for you.

    sold the lie the Date wasn't getting anything so she was suprised to see items under the tree. Now time to go for a ride with Babs before I cook and open various bottles of wines.

    Enjoy the food and drink and stay off the scales

    Merry Christmas peeps,

    'Tis dog walking time shortly, before all the presents food and booze stuff starts. Might grab a coffee first though.

    Have a good 'un.

    Happy Festivus*

    Woke up with a hypo this morning (yesterday's combination of too much exercise/red wine and not enough insulin) which was brilliant as it meant I had to eat chocolate biscuits for breakfast, which is as it should be at Christmas! :D

    Have a good'un :D

    Nice move T47.

    Merry Christmas and all that jazz.

    Toots are settled in to Fireman Sam (incl. all accessories. Other toys are available).
    A skip load of tat from the inlaws. Why do they bother?

    Take it easy and don't fur up all the arteries.

    And yes I am actually enjoying this one so far - may be something to do with the fact it just with the immediate family to date.

    Quick pub visit shorty on the cards as well to meet up with some old neighbours

    In the light of recent accusations in Cake Stop and elsewhere on the forum, I felt I need to re-dress the balance and post some other pics. Call it politics. Pin ups to suit all tastes...

    I'm not into sheep and certainly don't fancy the rest. In future can we forget being PC.

    He did seem to be able to get hold of those pics very quickly I guess they were already saved on his hard drive :)

    Happy Christmas to the deprived, depraved and degenerates.

    Can barely lift a finger let alone a hand. So much food. Storm one done, now enjoying a mild lull before it all gets going again when my cousins get here. Only 12 of us at the moment, that will more than double. Thankfully the lad is driving so I'm fending off my cold with booze. Might have a short snooze.

    Carp for Sean again?

    I'm so sorry I missed the Christmas wishes, I clicked on the thread to share a Christmas story. Merry Christmas everyone, specially crumby and Bally. Yes Bally one of the 12 dishes on Christmas Eve was carp, once you've picked the bones out, the few flakes of fish that are left are quite tasty.

    Anyway Christmas true story.
    My parents live in Sussex and Christmas Day is usually quite a somber affair so we tend to avoid. They have always invited lonely old relatives for Christmas dinner but we've run out, so this year they invited a lonely elderly neighbour. Christmas dinner was consumed without incident and my parents and elderly neighbour (Julie) retired to the living room for some wine and a movie. My mother offered Julie some more wine and on her return she found that Julie had dropped dead in the armchair! Dad performed CPR till the ambulance arrived and the paramedics worked on her for 50 mins but to no avail. What a bloody Christmas!

    Probably a very good way to go - full of good food, some grog and in good company. She timed it perfectly. If I slump in the armchair, please don't start doing 'Nelly the elephant' on my chest. Just get a funnel in my mouth and pour a bottle of vodka down to finish the job.

    So for Christmas Seano bumped off an old lady and stole her presents?
  • seanoconnseanoconn Posts: 6,811
    I'm rubbish at stories. I can't have made it clear that I wasn't there. First I knew of it was when dad text me to say Christmas is over, Julie's dead.
    You're right though Pinno, it was a good way to go without suffering and she may have lay undiscovered for a few days had she died at home.
