Jo, your tree reminds me of one year a while ago when I let the two younger boys do it. It looked like they had stood on the other side of the room and thrown the decorations at the tree. I had to wait until they were in bed to rearrange it all. These days they don't show any interest and probably wouldn't be bothered if there wasn't one! They do all approve of the twigs with lights on though - and have described them as classy!

Saw this story in the paper today about two dogs in China-one gets killed by a car -the other one is lost on what to do-get the tissues out

Ah, that reminds me.

My guess for today chocy - a snuff box.

(It's what actors do at the end of a play - snuff it)

Ta da! Now can edit things too. Oh am on a roll now...... better go & start tea before I get carried away here. J.

Afternoon, all shopped out now. Living room full of bags of pressies. Weather awful, rain, wind and fog, water pouring off the hills over walls and onto roads. drains can't cope. Got home and a crew is trying to fix the drainage close by to stop the water coming up out of the pavement. They have mended it 3 times before and are now trying to put something more permanent in place. Probably won't work though!

Shopped all day, so marking this evening.

What about Last Tango yesterday? Second series to follow, excellent news.

Family here on Saturday, I might have to make them watch Strictly.
20/12/2012 at 17:22

Arrgghhh! No I can't fit that all in! I'm a busy working woman! As for kissing the boss, do me a favour, I'd rather kiss a frog.

No Cubs tonight, we've finished for Christmas hols. I am meeting a very good friend at the big GC this evening - its late night opening. We will gossip, shop and take refreshment in the cafe. Dinner is sausages - the boys can cook!

20/12/2012 at 17:41

Hello again - been busy + visit to ancient parent.

Jo that is brilliant - both the tree and the posting - no more waiting for any one else - YOU ARE INDEPENDENT - I still can't manage the editing but never use it any way

Lovely tree from Christmas Rose as well


20/12/2012 at 17:48

Last Tango was pretty good- Ripper Street that starts soon looks good as well -it is not just about Jack


Do you finish tomorrow Lottie or is Scrooge making you work Monday?

20/12/2012 at 18:39

Well done Jo, now you know how to do it we will expect more,  I just loved Last Tango in Halifax was gutted when it was the last but then there's a new series next year,  I shall watch that Ripper Street just because Mathew MacFadyen is in it Phwarrrrrrr something to look forward to
