Christmas cooking

Posted: 06/11/2016 at 11:26

No cooking this year, three Daughters fighting over who feeds me. A bit of a problem as two are good cooks one is definitely up there with Mary Berry. I love being with the Grandchildren so that sorts it.

As a lad the whole family went to my Grand Ma's for Pudding Sunday, it was a great time as puddings and cake mixes were assembled in huge stone bowls. It was then put in pudding bowls and cake tins to cook when we got home, us kids got to clean out the mixing bowls, imagine all those sticky fingers H&S would have a fit. The smell of cooking Christmas cake was wondress to me, loved it then and still do.

Joyce, it is all the east coast, the bad weather is swirling over the North Sea and hitting all the coastal area's five miles inland it is dry.

The rain in town comes tumbling down November, it's November in the rain,

The Coastal front is up above November, it's November no sun again.

In the lane the trees in flame in November

Shed their leaves bare their limbs in November

Nature shuts down as the rain comes down November it's November in the rain.

Wet Wet Wet, Frank.

Stockton, the North Sea strikes again. Bitter cold wind, a cloudy sky, definitely not looking promising but "hey" off to Daughters now for sausage bacon and egg sandwiches, Daves birthday, should I take him fireworks I ask, I have some twenties going mouldy, coins that is not notes! Generosity is me?

Verdun, that is the way it should be, too much sadness in this world so would rather raise a smile than a fist "oo ah"! 

Cannot believe it, Stockton still has clear sky and sunshine, away out whilst it smiles on me.

Thank you Joyce ! "Err" I think? Next best? Never did like coming second that is a fail in my book.

here is the chorus. Definitely not Geordie Ridley.

Stockton now is nice and bright, the sun above is glowing,

The wind is blowing icy cold, some stocking tops are showing,

The girls turn round and snap at me just why are you grinning,

A good right hand a mighty smack sends my head a spinning.

Oo ah.

That is for Verduns Cornish version, oo ah.

Gannin along the Scotswood Road twas a November day; The wind was cold the clouds were low and looking very grey; All the lads and lasses there and they were heavy laden; We Gancies coats and welly boots, on the road to Blaydon.

That is the North East boys and girls, the North Sea rules the waves. Apologies to Geordie ridley.

Iamweedy, brought up in a musical family going back generations, songs are built in do not even know i am doining it at times. I look at life as music, some good some bad it becomes only a song so sing it and move on.

Living one foot in the North Sea as they say here, floors are decks, rooms cabins the kitchen is the engine room "oh" and we live on fish, our weather is different and we have to accept that fact. At the moment an icy wind is blowing into Tees Bay, we sing about it, why fight what you cannot beat.

Stockton has no sun today, the sun has gone away, skies are dull and grey, the North wind makes trees sway, blows the leaves array, makes you want to pray, for more sun today.
