No, he just wants to know why you don't want his present.

We went looking for a christmas tree the other day. We went to the usual place to find they had sold out.  No where else around seems to have anything decent left either.  So I dragged the old fake one out of the loft. It has dropped more needles than a fresh one would.  Then I spent the christmas tree money on some nice smellies for me and some masculine smelling massage balm for him.  He complains that he doesn't want to smell of rose and jasmine. Elemis online 5 day delivery took exactly 36 hours.

They start fixing his car next week. Well they have the go ahead to order the parts anyway. He might get it back by the end of January.

Proper flu. Five days feeling like hell then two weeks feeling better until you try to do something and then feeling totally exhausted.  I found the strongest painkillers I could get my hands on helped, with the occasional steamy bath and fresh sheets to crawl into (someone else to change the bed obviously.) Lots of hot drinks to keep fluid levels up.

Generic painkillers all the way. The rest is just advertising and packaging.

I have also stopped watching the news.  I saw a photo the other day of somewhere in Aleppo consisting of a lot of stone arches. A before photo, and after a bomb had dropped through a central dome. I said to hubby, it looks like something out of one of those PS4 games, it didn't look real. Except you can't press Reset and start again.

Brukale are a cross between kale and sprouts. You get little fluffy sprouts instead of tight buttons. Some supermarkets market them as flower sprouts. 

They call then kalettes in america (registered brand name)

I had the seed from   D T Brown.  they are not as sulphury as brussels.  We liked them.

I don't think we can win with middle east wars. If we go in we are the baddies. If we don't we get blamed for doing nothing. Hospitals and Red Cross used to be respected and not fired on, but this lot play by no rules that civilised people would. That's probably the wrong word. Civilised people would not wage war anyway.

 I wish all people of all religions,  " Peace on Earth" not just this month, but for years to come.

I am glad it is not a reflection of you.

I was going to recommend something for a bad back.

So you don't think this is just a scam to get a mailing list together so that they can bombard us with emails and dubious offers?

My mums old cat Tiger used to try and hide in the caravan when she was getting it ready for holidays.  He would be left with a neighbour feeding him. Apparently he used to si on the path and howl while we were away, as soon as we were back he would disappear for three days, before forgiving us and coming home.

 My friends Jack Russell in Perth used to greet me every time I went to visit like a long lost friend. We went for walks together on the beach, and she got  spoilt at the beach cafe.  She would move in to my bedroom while I was there and sleep with me. As soon as I started packing the suitcase she would start sulking, and refused to even look at me when the taxi came.

Other papers have fantasy football, or fantasy portfolio. As we can't do much in our real gardens at this time of year, let us have a fantasy garden
