Merry Christmas Everybody

Recommended Posts

About one hour ago I was wandering across sankey valley with my little dog, well more of a very slow amble these days as he is getting on a bit now, and listening to the birds singing in the pre-dawn light. there was the sound of the occasional car in the distance and promises of sunshine from the patches of dark blue sky between the clouds. the sound of a lone crow wafted across the landscape adding to the rest of the birdsong which was the only thing to disturb the quietness of the morning. There was not another soul around, no migrating postmen, no rumble of the morning rush hour, no clatter of trains on the line, not even the wail of a speeding ambulance. And as I stood there waiting for the dog to finish watering the lamp post I could not help thinking to myself. "Only an idiot like me would be up walking a dog this early on Christmas day in the cold"

 

But so far the day is a good day and hopefully it will get better, once the usual Christmas dinner at mum's is out of the way and I can settle back to not watch whatever is on the TV. (Usually a taffeta dress with matching pumps and a blond wig) er sorry wrong sort of TV.

 

Anyhow a merry Christmas to one and all and remember a family is not just for Christmas, but apart from borrowing money will probably be only time you will hear from them.

Merry Christmas Baz & Sid. & perhaps we should spare a thought for Asp I'm sure I remember him saying he would be at sea and that the ship was dry one.

A Very happy Christmas to all friends and sparring partners. I, for one, will definitely be staying sober (but will make amends for this in February) icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Ye won't be taking a wee willie whourt for auld lang syne asperity?

 

This is truly a happy day for me and I wish I could share the happiness I am feeling inside.

A visit to the doctor this afternoon and he told me that I am going to be ok. Then after returning home I was informed that my grandson will marry in July next year. :D

Merry Christmas to all.  One of the loveliest sight of this special day is the sight of children out in the street on their new cycles or roller skates.

 

Happy days

It took 17.5 hours at 11.8  knots. Mind you we had favourable tides and half a gale behind us most of the way!! I'm very impressed the photographer got his picture on Ship AIS so quickly. :P

Merry Christmas everyone.  Hope you are all laving a lovely day. 

 

No time to make a nice card for you all, sorry... as I now plan on having a few (or more) drinks to try and get me in the festive mood while watching someon in eastenders pop their clogs again as is usual on Xmas day.....or I might watch military wives instead. 

 

Gosh I know how to party eh ?

 

Sitting in A&E from 3pm to 6.30 pm listening to festive music was not what we had planned for xmas day afternoon.  Good for letting the meal go down though I suppose :?   :lol:

 

Have fun everyone and I recon Baz might have the 'best' hangover tomorrow judging by his 9am post :lol:

Sounds ominous. What were you doing in A&E from 3pm to 6.30pm? Wasn't food poisoning was it? :wacko:  :unsure:

Had a fantastic day.  I managed one out of two, Cleo but we weren't driving :)

 

I spent the evening dancing Gangman Style with my gorgeous nieces.

 

Someone had to do it but I need to lie in a darkened room for a few hours now.

I just love that gangnam video (the original one) crazy as it is. When I first saw it I thought what absolute rubbish it was but it sort of grew on me by the end. :lol:

I hope you haven't been putting silver sixpences in the Christmas pudding again Dizz, seriously though I do hope it wasn't serious though and it didn't spoil your family day too much. :unsure:
