This Christmas Malarkey

Went into Basildon this morning with 80 year old Mater, did Christmas present shopping.  This afternoon spent hours wrestling with Xmas paper and sellotape attempting to wrap presents.  Tomorrow morning off to the Tesco emporium to spend ridiculous amounts on festive fodder followed by a  Friday excursion to purchase fresh vegetables and meat.
Fun, fun, fun....

Just do what we're doing - macaroni cheese for xmas dinner! Much less hassle. It's just another day after all...!

My present wrapper is in NZ. So this year once again they look like they have been wrapped by a 5 year old.

Hi Abby
I hope you are about on the 27th because the hammering at the door will be Dad and Me enroute to Lincolnshire via Norfolk - we could bring you a few almost cooked sprouts....
