Christmas is coming...

Ad has just been told he will be working on Christmas day, which is a nuisance. We will have to rearrange lunch and have an early dinner I suppose. And we will have to wait till then to open our presents!!!! Can I stand the suspense?

I have started buying stocking fillers and thinking about actual presents, so I am feeling sort of prepared (ish).

I have been told by Kate that I have to get Sky sports on trial over Christmas so that she can watch the cricket. The excitement is almost past bearing!

We have another new thing this Xmas because usually my kids go to their dad on Boxing day, and probably will do that this year. B's kids usually went to his house when he was at College, but as his house is now in Pembrokeshire he will have his Boxing day here with his kids. This is fine and will probably be lovely, but my slob out day with the dog and cold turkey will be a thing of the past. You can't have it all.

Well that sucks!!! Feel like Alan Rickman as Sheriff of Nottingham and calling off Christmas this year! What will we do then d'you think?

And remember, the cricket's on in the wee small hours so you won't have to actually watch any of it :)

I get more bah humbug every year. This year we are thinking of treating ourselves to the wii rock band to cheer us up after the anual visit on Xnas day
