    Me πŸ™‚
    chilled Xmas Eve eating party food, drinking and chilling with MsD.
    Smoked salmon blinis and bucks fizz for breakfast then presents before a slap up Indian with friends before chilling again with wine and chocolates – and the odd beer πŸ˜‰

    Hopefully get a chance to try out my new road shoes and pedals tomorrow as well before an in laws visit.


    Had a great one. Dealt with family over the phone, then bike ride while the chicken cooked. Got back and finished veg. Fantastic roast. Then lego and a cigar. Sister phoned back later in the day to tell me i’m going to be an uncle πŸ˜€

    Although waking up with a trapped nerve in me back/neck had a bloody good day did the “dont buy eachother prezziez” with the wife this year and put all the money in a pot for the sales to buy what we want.

    Saw the mother and the inlaws and had a very fancy dinner at our friends house and plenty of bucks fizz and single malts!!!! Weyhey!!

    I’m coping

    Was not looing forward to this Christmas but after a good outcome after my Op its been one of the best! First ride on the bike tomorrow weather permitting life good πŸ™‚
    Merry Christmas Ton


    Belting day, thanks!

    Vaguely embarrassed to admit that, at the age of 36, my mam and dad bought me a bike for Xmas (that’s the embarrassing bit), and I jumped up and down on the spot just like I did 30 odd years ago (not embarrassed about that at all) πŸ™‚


    Aye, it was grand, ta.


    Not particularly

    Christmas Eve alone

    Dinner at cousins started off well but had to leave after an hour as was getting sweats and feeling sick

    Rest of evening feeling shivery

    Presents have been particularly bobbins this year. Nuts and dried fruit 😐

    I’m considering not buying anyone anything next year

    Ho Ho Ho πŸ™‚

    Not embarrassing at all Steve! Enjoy it mate. Had a good one all things considered kids happy, granny happy and I got some new bike socks! Oh and the pork turned out beautifully too.


    It’s been great, lots of family. Some good time chatting with my folks. Not obscene amounts of food or drink, which thanks to a stupid early start tomorrow is done with and I can get back to normal sensible consumption a day early.

    Some proper quality presents, some junk too. But that’s all edible or drinkable, and can be off loaded to anyone that wants free booze or chocs. But the bikepacking kit more than made up for it.

    First Christmas with a reasonably secure work outlook on the cards for 4 years. I’m off out soon to pick up some 4 season mountain boots thanks to the future outlaws. 3 winter mountain trips booked in the highlands, one 20 mile, and one 40 mile run trips with friends sorted.

    That’s additional to an entry into the LAMM, only an easy category admittedly. Plus I’m part way through training for an run/bike/run attempt at the Scottish 4000ers. The aforementioned job security looks good to enable a high Munro General hill frenzy this year with bikepacking thrown in. And I start Pilates classes next week to strengthen my feeble and flabby upper body.

    Friends and family all seem in good health, so fingers crossed. A good Christmas to be followed by a good year.


    Yep, lovely thanks. Wife, kids, parents, sisters, one brother in-law (the other is ill) and two nephews. Mum out did herself with a truly awesome lunch and presents were great. Even allowed to fall asleep in the afternoon for an hour or so πŸ˜€

    Nice to see others having a lovely day too. Now, Boxing Day….

    Challenging at times, I’ll be honest. At my mum and dad’s, with my sister who’s 8 months preggers and not going well with it, and my MiL who is lovely but can rub people up the wrong way, especially when you’re 8 months pregnant πŸ™„

    And my BiL too, and his dog, who’s lovely but big and we’ve got a pup, and a game of indoor chase over the top of the littluns presents wasn’t going to end well, and then MiL’s ‘well they shouldn’t be left on the floor’ was always going to be well received too. I’m just surprised I don’t get a UN blue peacekeeper’s hat in my stocking.

    Plus side – the oven overflowed, so the beef was relegated mid cook to be finished outside on the BBQ which clearly needed careful monitoring by me, so I went and stood outside in the drizzle for an hour or so with my dad and it came out bloody fantastic. There was a time we wondered if he’d make it to Christmas, but he has and he has his last chemo tomorrow, so all told that’ll do for me.

    Although I felt like pants as I am suffering with gastric flu, the kids enjoyed it which is the main thing.At least I won’t have to worry about dieting after the festivities so every cloud and all that. Just about to leave for Austria so I think this journey will be interesting! 😐

    Had a great day with the kids, Mrs, Mother in Law and Sister in Law.

    Drank well, ate well, got some lovely gifts and had time for my kids as nothing else planned.

    A fab day with the close family (daughter, SIL and son) and the dog. Food presents and a 90 mile drive to cook it. On to Bristol later today.


    Nope, worked yesterday. Came home to parents moaning, microwaved dinner and pulling my cracker on my own as everyone else was looking for a card that wasn’t there.

    Text off someone I really like(d) last night who didn’t feel the same that kicked off a few emotions that I’d got over.

    Had a rubbish nights sleep as woke every hour with nausea, got in to work at 6am with a 10hour shift ahead of me but just came home as vomiting and diarrhoea has kicked in

    Overall? No, not the best, but I ‘spose it could’ve been a lot worse

    Not a big Christmas fan, but this was a good one. Just us and the kids, some great and surprising presents the best being lego πŸ™‚ Very chilled, even broke out the port last night but clear headed this morning and will be out for a ride.

    I’ve come to the rather shocking conclusion – for us – Xmas is best spent without the rest of the family πŸ˜‰

    Had to cajole little un into coming out of his room at 8am. He was convinced Santa hadn’t been.

    Had a good one but ready to put my feet up now!

    Busy day on Christmas eve preparing stuff but acknowledged the fact it was my birthday by nipping out for a few drinks with my two adult children and one of their friends. Bed at 3am then up at 8 with the two younger children and to start the cooking.

    Brilliant day of nerf wars and christmas tunes and general happy chaos. Only downside is the two smallest are now off to their dads and the big two are back at work tomorrow

    No power for most of C Eve and Day which made for a different day – Christmas by headlamp and candles. Thank goodness for an AGA as next door resorted to BBQ the turkey!!!! Amazing flooding near us.

    Hats off the guys working to restore power. We shared mulled wine and biscuits with them on our early dog walk.

    Great/sad day – different, great food. Changed the wine to little of several different ones instead of pigging out on one or two after Coren/Armstrong programme.

    No bike pressies but a few swim ones – need to get back pounding some lengths. Return to triathlon in 2014??????


    Having a brill one with family yesterday and today, then with mates from tomorrow until N Y’s Eve.

    We’re only half-way through btw. πŸ˜€


    Lovely few days. Christmas Eve on the hills with the family, log fires and festivities in the evening. Christmas Day 1 at home before heading off to the outlaws for a huge family dinner with both sets of olds and then prezzies in Christmas Day 2, now getting ready for SiL to arrive with her kids for Christmas Day 3.

    New Year will be seen in on the top of Mam Tor as usual.
