You're on good form today Geoff! I'll be singing that all day now. Clever clue too.

Still trying-lots of missing faces today-the shopping frenzy must have started

17/12/2012 at 14:00

I don't know about frenzy but I have actually bought some Christmas cards this morning. Better get on and print the address labels.

Afternoon all

Late today - shopping

Trying to get food in but all ddate stamps were only up to 26th

This above is a unusal version of a well tested Christmas hit. Enjoy

The solution to that is eat everything before the 26th-simples

I's back!

I've got piles of washing as the tumble dryer at 'little house' is poorly, again! So have made sure OH has enough clothing for this week. He'll have to iron some shirts himself- I decided this morning noway! I needed coffee so trotted into town instead! Got some nice vegies off market though & more picture hooks & chocolate & bread.....

Oh I need to sort out a better position for this laptop. Back later. J.

Excellent, cards in need of posting have gone in the box!

Geoff - 

Been out to post cards - still in the 2nd class timeline - Hooray. Also posted the ones to the neighbours (street)

Bought some silly stocking odds and ends, bubbles, little note pads, key ring, as I can't eat sweets this year they're not having any either Ho Ho

 Afties all . late today . Gave house a good bottoming now all tree , tinsel,. lights etc . etc are up and daughter payed a surprise visit as she had some odds and ends to tie up at this end.

Geoff have to say that rub in stuff is brill - feel much better now.

Need to finish the cards tonight and get them out the way and think I've finally caught up with Christmas.

Love my tree even though it took 2 days to decorate it

Still thinking here.

All I can think about is the Slade song- was in 6th form I think...

After much heaving of large chair & moving of plugs, timers etc have laptop back on the table. Much better than on a coffee table in front of a quite high sofa & no, before anyone asks, cant stand a laptop on my lap!

Quite enjoyed SPOY last night. OH had no choice, I hid the remote- actually under the cushion I was leaning against!

I now need to move all the spare tree decorations back into OH's wardrobe & the tree box into spare room. Daughter gone back to work, she's taken things steady over the w/end & feels much better.

Thinking hat back on..... J.

Evening lovelies!

What a bloody day I've had. Not stopped. Sign it's pre-christmas week!

Woke up early, came down, turned on PC. All fine. Made a coffee, had a ciggie, came back in. No internet. Picked up phone to phone Sky. No phone line either. Was about to phone on my mobile when an old friend turned up with Jessies birthday and Christmas presents. Could have done without that today as it was Jessies nursery play! She never left until 12pm, so was then running round getting ready to take Jess to nursery in time. Got her there, came home, waited for her Grandad and Nan to turn up. Still no phone/internet. They turned up, off we went to the play.

Grandad has only just gone, but internet/phone back on when we got back from nursery.

Now I can relax, hopefully.
