That's cracking that is Geoff, or rather Mrs Geoff!! Jess now wants to make a cake! It certainly won't look like yours!! More like Snowman Massacre!

How do you know it was not all my own work?

14/12/2012 at 16:58

I always did a s*d it iced cake, usually on CEve!

Now after family discussions last year I dont have to ice it! I know it doesnt seem right somehow, but I'm the only one who likes marzipan & thick icing- yum- so was outvoted! Plus after 2 lots of surgery in the run up to the hols last yr it just wasnt on. So no doing marzipan a week before & eating at least the same amout whilst doing it. Then waiting until it's dry etc etc. Trouble is I know there's a whole bloick of marzipan sat in the cupboard..... so what it's OOD!

ANYWAY daughter has finally heard that they're giving her the mortgage!! So much relief here, she's just said she still feels a bit off, but pleased. Now hope the survey doesnt find out something awful.

The tree decoration boxes are in the hall, along with the tree & we plan to make a start later on. Yes shall hoover next week whan am back from w/end. Still to pack for that as well..... J.

I just know!

jo, it is Friday evening now! When are you going??

14/12/2012 at 17:05

Shall set off some time after 8am tomorrow!! I wouldnt be driving over those roads in the dark & wet for anything!

I then come back on the Monday morning. I'll probably trot into the town first thing for a nice coffee, no surprise there then, & the veg market & fish van, if he's still there. I also need to get OH & daughter a card. J.

Is this the place in France?? Or am I totally confused?? Or just going mad!

14/12/2012 at 17:21

Eer -wot place in France? Not me Becks. Wasnt Geoff going to Spain, but last holiday was in France?

No, we live in Manchester. OH works in NEast Derbyshire & rents 'a little house' over there. That's where I go & stay every so often to save him driving back home. My petrol not his! J.

So it's me going mad! Could have sworn someone on here had a 2nd home/place in France? And I always thought it was you! Much apologies!

Here are todays guesses

the ice queen-father christmas

ps-moon choc

lootie-moon

nightowl elf-gavin and stacey christmas special

georg-christmas cake

holly berry-ivy

I can reveal that we have a sort of winner with Ice Queen going for Father Christmas-the answer was a santa hat which are now visible on the smileys but were not last week

This was easy

Tut! Go back to the easy clues!!!!

14/12/2012 at 17:55

Get moaned at when it is hard- get moaned at when it is too easy-cannot win

14/12/2012 at 18:08

Oh no - just got here too late and I had worked out it was something to do with the Christmas smilies.  Great name today Geoff 

Love the story of the "Christmas Policeman"
