    For me: Mince pies baking right now and off to a large family and friends gathering this evening, before trying to put the kids pressies under the tree whilst very tipsy!
    If I fall asleep before that point again or drop them all on the stairs again I might be single tomorrow 😯 best behaviour….

    I just fitted a new ignition coil to my car following a very emotional drive last night. All is well so far.

    Just chillin out at the in-laws before carol singing with other villagers around the local farms and stately homes on the edge of Yorkshire Dales πŸ˜€

    Whilst this is not something i would normally choose to do it is very enjoyable and the good people of Yorkshire make us feel very welcome.

    Merry Christmas one and all

    few last minute pressies for the wife this morning. home to freshly baked ham sandwiches. made some mayonnaise. ferried kids off to nan/granddad so we can stash the pressies that are hidden in the loft…nexrt job. just quickly fixed washing machine plug prob. checking emails now. removal of said pressies next then out for a quick 45/50min road ride (hav;nt touched a bike in 3 weeks) before coming home whence i plan to have another crack at ‘wish you were here’ plus getting my fingers around dominant seventh chords. finally when kids in bed crack open whisky, tub of marks n sparks large salted peanuts and a fabulous cheeseboard of 3 cornish cheeses.

    Crack open a few beers, watch a DVD (or a few DVD’s) and generally do as little as possible.

    Finished work last week, been doing various weddings, family visits, meals out, last-minute-shopping-dash, mulled wine at the German market plus some ice skating down the Princes Street Gardens rink. Off to meet mates from my old work for a few bevvies tonight, then wee nightcap with the missus, bro and mo-in-law.

    I wish. πŸ™

    Working since yesterday until 6th January, so I miss every single bloody day of it.

    For about the last 13 or 14 years I’ve always nipped in to town for a couple hrs for a few quick beers! Mrs ws would then pick me up about 5, and home to have fun with the kids etc. Not this year though, shes really poorly and really upset coz me and the kids having fun down here in the lounge. Not a good start to Christmas, fingers crossed for tomorrow!!

    However, I reckon I only have to do it once more before I start my new job πŸ™‚

    Chopped up some carrots and parsnips to help the wife, helped to tidy up the house and in the last hour I have been having a few drinks.

    Happy Christmas everyone!

    Had nice dinner planned with the in-laws who are up from England since a few days til Boxing Day. Christmas Eve is were in Germany the main celebration happens, so it is always special to me being from there. Unfortunately my dad-in-law had to be brought into hospital emergency wise this morning, so my soh and his mum are in hospital for an indefinite time tonight and I am here by myself. Main thing is the old man is in no immediate danger anymore but will have to go under the knife tomorrow.

    drink Cava with my wife and wrap presents and listen to / watch christmassy stuff. Warton Junior is only 7 months so that limits our options somewhat!

    Snowy ride over to Drewsteignton and down Hunters Path to Fingle Bridge earlier on – fancy myself for the start of the Mega now… Skipped the ride by the river as too much like hard work so came back on the road – less slippy than yesterday.

    Afternoon tea with sloe gin with friends when I got back. Toasty evening front of the fire now with the family. Smugtastic. 8)
