Have not done any cards and only very few decorations. Ican't as yet find the energy or for that matter the time.

Meat is all prepared and sorted. Great having 2 butchers in the family LOL.

I've ordered some pressies this week. Might go shopping on Saturday to do some more and then finish off when I am off next Thursday and Friday.

Going to buy myself some treats for the days after Christmas. Cranberry and brie parcels and dreamy miniature desserts ...........................more calories!! And I have a big tin of Milo to snuggle up with in the evenings when I am going to put my feet up, chill out and relaaaaaaaaaaaaaaxxxx!!


AuntySherlock Report 10 Dec 2009 22:44

You lot put me to shame. My Christmas Card day will be Saturday afternoon. Only about 30 to do. I bought plants for the workplace. Inspiried genius. Not too expensive and if properly cared for wil last longer than food.

Still have to sort out what the family wish to do but it will probably be lunch at our house. I will have a week and a bit to sort everything and then it will all be over.

For DET. Re Janey. Nope, not a peep, Has probably stowed away on the Arsenal Ark Royal awaiting the cruise into which ever warmish island the said vessel bumps. Need to brief the Cyber Pets that it will not be appropriate to roster her on for cabin staff duties should she be discovered on board.

YG!! You have Milo. Just remember, if you are desperate.... sit on chair, put Milo can on lap, open can with spoon, take out large spoonful of Milo, put into mouth and crunch................... hmmmmmm!!!

Oh drats, I'm drooling again. And it goes on icecream, into cold milk, into hot milk, into smoothies.

i am going looking for milo me thinks it is lovely


AuntySherlock Report 11 Dec 2009 09:05

Morning Maz. Google Milo and see what amazing feats of sporting activity you will be able to achieve if you drink the stuff.
You will be like me, superwoman. An overweight superwoman if you eat the stuff by the tin. Just watch out how many Tim Tams you consume with each mug of Milo.

Morning all, just finished shampooing the lounge carpet. Drinking this coffee and then of to do hall and stairs. Christmas comes but once a year (Thank Goodness LOL)

Oh and I will hopefully get tree up tonight given good luck and a fair wind LOL

I still haven't got my tree up, I'm waiting for the decorators to finish. Hopefully they'll finish today and I'll get it up tomorrow.

I've never seen any Milo on the shops, I'm going to Google it to see what it looks like.

LG, you shouldn't be shampooing carpets when you're just starting to get your strength back. I'm sure it could have waited another week.

Ah, just had a look at Google, Milo is like Ovaltine with chocolate added.


AuntySherlock Report 11 Dec 2009 11:11

It's OK Pauline, LG has tied three boakins together and a couple of the dragons are dipping them in the shampoo and dragging them across the carpet. The rest of the boakins are queued up at the door waiting to be allowed to play in the soap suds.

LG is curled up on the couch watching reruns of the last few footy matches.

How do I explain the difference between ovaltine and milo. They do taste different, the texture is definitely different. Ovaltine is sort of crunchier. You can buy little packets of ovaltinees here. That's what it tastes like.

No Christmas dinner for him this year!

How on earth could anyone log in as LG and delete her thread? More so, why would anyone want to do that?

Oh, I replied to Aunty's post and now it's gone.


AuntySherlock Report 11 Dec 2009 11:38

I agree and decided it was a stupid scenario to go with so I deleted my post. It doesn't make any sense at all.

Edit. I need to go to sleep. I have sent LG a message with the information. Will catch you all evening your time.


Mazfromnorf Report 11 Dec 2009 16:10

hello everyone have just done the programme for the nativity service tuesday evening got a party tonite in wolsingham


AuntySherlock Report 11 Dec 2009 19:08

Morning Maz, Sound like you are well and truly into the swing of Christmas. It is very early here about 5.30 am, just breaking dawn. Hopefully it will be a nice day. The weather forecasts for UK are pretty bad, looks like you are in for some wintery stuff. Hope you all are keeping warm.


YG Report 11 Dec 2009 19:32

It's flippin' freezing here lol!! Car was solid in ice this morning. Ooooh, I love winter arrrrgghhhhh!!!!

Couldn't get in the shed for the ice scraper because the lock was frozen! Roll on summer!!


AuntySherlock Report 11 Dec 2009 20:53

Oh I am tangled in such a mess in my tree. One of OHs aunts (mother's sister) married a widower. I found his mother, father and first wife. Then I found aunty living with him (after marriage) in the electoral roll. Then I checked the year prior to his second marriage and found him living with another female, and his father. Now I don't know if he was living with his father and his father's second wife, his father and his sister, his father and another aunt or if he had another "wife" twelve months before marrying OHs aunt. Stupid electoral roll does not give ages.

Now, there you go. Aren't you all glad you are able to share that little muddle.


AuntySherlock Report 12 Dec 2009 02:17

Well I'll be..... I've killed this thread as well. It's only 17 minutes past 2 am over there. Surely you lot are still up partying!!

Nobody, nothing, zilch, nil, nada, whatever are you lot doing.

Don't tell me you are all huddled in bed with the wind howling outside the windows, and snow falling with a heavy thud.

Well I might as well make hay while the sun almost shines over here.

Mine, mine, mine. My throne, broomstick, cartons of booze, frogs, firemen, weird biscuits, laser gun and Arsenal footy team.

Stay away all of you. Not sharing. Sweetpea start up the generator, lets have some soothing Aunty music so I can doze on the throne.!!!!!

Hmmm today the thread, tomorow the Ark!!

OK so I'm worried about LG. I do hope she didn't overdo it with the scrubbity dubbity up and down the stairs.


Mazfromnorf Report 12 Dec 2009 05:36

We had thick fog all day yesterday but it seems to have gone this morning, I can actually see across the road.

Hmm, Aunty got to play at being Queen for quite a while last night, hope LG hasn't had a relapse.

Maz, you can make lovely cards by using PowerPoint.
