2 December: Christmas time is here by golly

....Deck the halls with hunks of holly....

Or, in the case of our neighbours, as many lights as B&Q and Argos sell.

....Fill the cup and don't say when....

Those drunk drivers keep the courts busy all through January.

....Mix the punch, drag out the Dickens....

The Muppet Christmas Carol again.

....Even though the prospect sickens, brother here we go again....

Hate to say it, but when the Amazon parcel arrives next week, all my festive non-food shopping will be done.

We whizzed into Durham early this morning, at 9 o'clock were on the doorstep of the shop we wanted , and by the time we left, at 9.45, the queue for the car park was back round the roundabout and clogging up the bridge. And 3 more Saturdays to go!

The thing I dislike most about the festive season is that normal life is practically impossible for weeks beforehand, and by 9 a.m. on 26 December people are asking "Did you have a good Christmas?", as they dash off to book their holiday and buy bargains in the sales, which started 10 minutes ago.

But let's not forget the real message of Christmas -

....God rest you merry merchants, may you make the Yuletide pay....



This has been a Bah Humbug production.

P.P.S. Sorry, Blogger - it only needed the cache cleared. Still a lot to learn about this Internet lark.

Chin up, Stitchwort, disapproval would be folly.....

Maybe you can dance the Masochism Tango on New Year's Eve?

Probably not the Vatican Rag, but almost definitely the Wiener Schnitzel Waltz!
