Nope - I can't . One of life's great mysteries eh? It'll be those pagans...they're as bad as the elves...

Have a lovely Christmas Woody 

I'm watching your namesake just now in Toy Story!

Merry Christmas archie - what cakes have you got planned for tonight - or are you saving yourself for tomorrow? 

Watching toy story and having a little cry at Jessie's song - as I always do....

Just moved - horrible garden

When I was looking for inspiration I googled shade loving plants and it brought up a  nursery called Long Acre Plants who specialise in just that! Lots of lovely stuff on there

Verd...Santa will only put coal in your stocking this year...

Were they ok nut? 200 degrees for about ten to fifteen sounded about right to me.

Merry Christmas Pam 

Don't think we'll be eating the 'chalet' lily!  Besides - you lot are all coming to sleep in it at the weekend if Verdun's has a leak....  Fence panels can be replaced - you can't - so glad you're ok.

I'll be fine - girls won't go till afternoon as we have presents to open first, and stockings(if they've been good of course!) then I'll go to the cemetery. I could go to my sister's but I quite enjoy being on my own and watching all the stuff I've recorded on TV, and those mint Matchmakers won't eat themselves ! 

Forester-plenty of good gravy is the key isn't it? And a good roast potato -  although I don't make them very often now. I would always have been quite happy with those, roast veg, and plenty of home made cranberry and bread sauce for Christmas dinner

Merry Christmas fidget and Mr fidget 

Know what you mean about car parking - the season of goodwill doesn't exist in the affluent area local to me when you watch them parking over two spaces etc. No consideration  

Just me and my two girls for our Christmas dinner which we're having tonight as they're going to their Dad's tomorrow. I'd better remember to put the roast on! Just made some cranberry sauce so the house smells suitably festive.

Merry Christmas David and everyone on this thread -it's been a lovely one to take part in.

BL- is that your tree? Lovely.

This is my little one for this year, complete with it's gingerbread 'men'!

 If they're not happy Forester- tell 'em they can be like the turkey and get stuffed!  

 I no longer have to cater for large amounts for Christmas dinner but part of the fun is when things don't quite go to plan. I never made anything other than Christmas pudding - those that didn't like it could eat extra chocolates/cake/crisps/nuts instead! 

I think you should pour yourself an extra large glass of something and say : iff you don't like it..hic..jjjust bring ..hic..your own #***ing time... Cerry Mistmas !!

I knew if I took my eye off those elves for 5 minutes....

Forester - my daughter did it all. I only helped decorate the roof. She scaled it down a bit in size - only problem was that it meant the bits each side of the door were very thin so they needed a bit of extra help to stay up with a large snowdrift! I offered to glue it together with clear sealant but she didn't appreciate  that for some reason...can't think why  

Xmas jokes

Great jokes everyone...even yours Verd...hee hee

I'll just repeat my daughter's reindeer one from the other day :

Q : How many reindeer does Santa have?

A : Ten. Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, Rudolph...and Olive...

# Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, had a very shiny nose,

And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows.

Olive, the other reindeer......

Ooh- I've got another one..

Why did Santa's grotto get shut down?

Elf and safety...
