Keep the snoring to a minimum so I am able to concentrate on my work please.

Catch you all later.

YG Report 7 Dec 2009 18:20

Time for celebrations then DET!!!

Done some of mine but still main pressies to buy. I can do some on the internet fortunately and I will finish the remainder next week when I have a couple of days off, or on Sunday.

Got the tree up after son came and emptied loft for me!! Cannot find any of the gift tags to match the paper so looks like I will have to buy more.

I've been invited out on Christmas Day and Boxing Day so don't have to worry about much food buying!! Yippee!!!!!!


AuntySherlock Report 7 Dec 2009 19:27

Thought I'd better edit that line. You lot are probably far too young for Dr Seuss quotations. I don't like Christmas. And I haven't done anything. And I don't do presents. And you are making me feel guilty, which I should feel because I am so slack.

Well I have made my pudding and I have bought my cards, and I have planned to go buy the plants I'm giving to workmates (but they don't count as presents because you don't wrap them) and I have, I have, I have oh blimey there must be something else I've done.

It is raining today. Raaaaaiiiiing, wet, mucky stuff and in December. There goes the cricket. We have a fight on our hands against the West Indies, and it rains.

Mumble, mumble, mumble..............

By the way Mo if ever you have the chance you sneak in and pinch the throne and Her Maj's accoutrements. Fair drives her barmy it does. Also a quick slick of paint any colour other than red and white will put you on her right side. Here take this can of yellow and green striped paint and repaint the throne room.

Her KQ Maj will be soooooooooooooooooo surprised!!
