Preposterous question....

Multi tasking???? Easy, sling the bread in the toaster on auto, the beans in the micro wave on auto, the washing up in the machine on auto, the washing in the machine on auto and set off the auto hoover to wander around the carpet. Drop the beans on the toast, get a coffee from the machine and go watch afternoon TV with your feet up. all invented by men. Sexist no that is what my daughters do!!!!!!

I did feel sorry for Len, he was correct in one was a Rumba with no Rumba in it and the other a Cha cha with no dance steps, to his thinking they should both have gone. The professional choreographers went too far so it is not the Celebs to blame, they both did the best with what they trained for. Neither have much chance against Caroline and Frankie, Simon is coming up on the rails, unless those three fall over, drink too much wine or over indulge the mince pies then Mark is out first leaving the real dance competition.

David it works and I love it. Now we wait and see what the GBP say. Big argument at the party yesterday about Dance Competition or show, a lot of good wine had been quaffed, half are now learning Mum and Dad dancing as they call it the other half round the handbag, ask Dad? Matthew 13 and Hannah 10 yesterday chimed in they are both learning Ballroom and have competitions coming up next month, it is a dance competition to them, who am I to disagree.

Today is a beautiful day lucky 13th my granddaughters birthday I go to the family party later. Hannah has her friends do tomorrow at the indoor cart track, last time she went she drove them all off the track, that's my girl.

it is a solid white frost zero temp though clear sky and the sun showing its face, the last flowering fuchsia are shedding flowers and leaves, it has been a very good year for them. The garden can sleepnow until after new year, all the tidying up is done.

Christmas of yesteryear

Posted: 12/12/2014 at 10:58

Christmas past in wartime was still the time all the extended family gathered and let their hair down. We had two years of being woken rushed to the shelter then do all the normal things the next  day, woe betide you if late for school even if the bus had to stop half way because of the damage. The Germans seemed to have a Christmas truce, no sirens, hence no loss of sleep we arose ready for the presents and the party we knew was coming. Probably because of the danger we partied harder, the uncertainty of life seems to give a love of what you have and so the Aunts Uncles cousins Grandparents arrived, we had the biggest house and we went on well into the night kids and all. We slept where we fell, breakfast next morning followed by left overs and visits from those who had their own Christmas parties and it was over for another year.

Preparation did start early making the cakes and puddings, the pigs would be killed in September, Geese Ducks and Hens a week before so it was not the extended July to December operation we seem to have now. The expectations now are far higher than we had so I can understand people drawing back from it all. Christmas was not expected to be perfect though it always started with us at morning service, we were not allowed to forget the main reason we were having a Christmas party, it should be a time to relax with people you know and love, they know all your foibles and faults then accept them, just enjoy being together as we did in a very traumatic time, life is too short, well it is for some.

"Whoa up Yvie" SPORTS Massage??? what on this earth is one of those saying which it sounds rather risqué, does Carol on the hill chaperone you?

My cleaning Lady gives me exercise as she chases me from room to room with her feather duster, it has a very long handle and she does not like clutter so she comes in one door I exit the other quickly or get well and truly dusted down.

Fair though cold today, on Parade at Daughters for the obligatory sandwich and check over, see if the t'auld lad is still breathing, get my instructions for the next week that is if she has two minutes to spare in her diary. What happened to the days I gave the orders??

Busy-Lizzy, yes use bought puff pastry I do now, you cannot taste the difference, another tip is buy a large jar of mince meat and small jar of Bramley apple or make your own and mix it with a few drops or even big spoon fulls of brandy, my lot are eating them as they come in the door and asking for more.

The snow vanished the sun came out as I drove back down the Durham Road I was  blinded by it no matter where I put the sun visor, now the wind is back and it is bitter, that's me for the day, the garden can relax.
