Huge,

My current favorite is BIGALOW(SP) Constant Comment 

Thankfully, I still have a Commonwealth friend in Assam. We are the same age so it is a race to see who will croak first

He says, once tea gets to England it spoils (actually he says London)

Chesters1,

YOU SHOULD OBVIOUSLY KNOW - I don't know crap about tea. Half or more (he sends me several little 4oz tins of different stuff) goes in the dust bin. Ohh, in the past I have noticed the country of origin is not always INDIA

Christmas is getting close ,last order for milk and a few bits and bobs arrived today.

Couple of parcels tomorrow and a blood test  (again) christmas eve then its looking through 10,000 channels to see if theres anything worth watching on the box .Not a sky subscriber but their expensive VIP seems a rip off a few free phonecalles and films most probably seen last year!

Hopefully my new disk motor comes this week the old one keeps forgetting where the satellites are so i guess 20 years is about the lifespan ,the new one will probably expire long before that !

Once the kids left home we didnt bother with a real tree and i think "christmas" is the pine needle smell ,now its just another day even with my mrs mini fake tree

I remember 30 odd years ago watching for months a fine tree up in the woods ,20 odd feet high but the top was perfect ,christmas eve off i went armed with a very rusty saw stumbled around until i found it (things are very different on a cloudy drizzly night) spent an hour sawing away at its 6-8 " bole until it fell and found to my distain some ****er had climbed it and took the top! 

Its replacement was just a couple of branches propped up against the wall but the kids didnt notice it was what lay below that interested them lol

I wouldn't waste  too much time looking through the TV schedule, it's all crap at this time of year.

We don't even bother with a fake tree any more, neither do we have cards strung up around the place, no decorations either nowadays, it's just another day to get through.

There's not a turkey or a mince pie to be found here, a tube of Pringles and a bag of pistachios is the full extent of our edible celebrations.

It will be over soon enough though,  and we can all get back to our new Covid normal.

 

Has anyone seen my
