Where's the Christmas thread?  It's just days away! I haven't bought a single thing yet and probably wont till Friday/Saturday morning. 

TBH, it's a bit of a burden. 

Merry Christmas everyone.

Are you a christmas person Bev?  I think it's more a women/child/family thing and me being a single guy....

Do you get the dogs anything?

Have got nearly everyone's except the parents

Mind, dad had his early as he needed his!

Next year hoping for the parents to go to older brother's rather than be here to ruin it for me again, else am buggering off 

this year, mum decided to tell me what one of my brothers had bought me  >:( she manages to ruin it for me each year, last 2 yrs involved me wrapping my own presents, so I didnt bother wrapping them  ::)

I have bought nothing yet.

James wants an ipod max - new edition fingy - he will get that and his stocking full of cds, dvds, guitar fings, chocolate coins, satsuma, lego all the usual and some money to spend in sales for new clothes

Pandy wants cook school day with Martin Wishart (which I will obviously need to accompany him on) and winter wheels for bike.  He will also get stocking full of gadgety stuff.

I wants Pink Nikon camera and new glasses and new shoes and new bags and new blender fingy and crueset stuff and new bike clothes and a new winter coat and pamper day and sweets and chocolates and pink fings and scarfs and loads of stuff from lush and percy pigs and new watch and ear rings and socks and dressing gown and more fings and even more fings...................

Not that I am selfish but Christmas is about giving so GIES it!!!


Oh and cooking dinner as usual - lobster bisque, turkey and all trimmings, panetonne and custard/pavlova/cranberry and raspberry panacotta

Victoria decided to give the vet my money this year ;D that said I have three big bags of whatever sitting here for the girls from friends and clients.
Daughter coming for Xmas day and Boxing day then she is going home as I have to be up at silly o clock to drive to Stoudbridge in Glos as I am judging 4 breeds hope to make it back the same day if not will be camping with somebody on route.
Have to be back for the 29th as I am rescueing a clients two boys from kennels and keeping them overnight the girls will like bossy them about and they will have someone new to play with they like visitors
As for food I will dive round the island buying on route on the 23th and picking up more dog pressies I am sure

If you can't eat it or play with it,
Just pee on it and walk away
