    I got a hefty discount the other day because "sure, isn't it nearly Christmas" :D

    Myself and 2 cousins are all currently abroad (they're in Oz, me in Canada).

    2 of us didn't go home for Xmas last year, and we were pretty sad about it. We realized the other day that we'll all be together again this Xmas. That, combined with a very ill relative getting the all clear (and we can all breathe again after a tense 2 years of treatment)- it's going to be a great Xmas 2015 :D:D:D:D

    One of the gifts I got for Christmas (pyjamas) had a rip in it so it had to be returned. I finally got around to ordering a replacement on Sunday and it arrived today. It's Christmas again!!

    Top reason to be cheerful??

    This effing weather!!! :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,005 ✭✭✭✭Toto Wolfcastle


    After a crappy couple of days a Happy Easter card arrived in the post this morning and the I saw a sign outside the butchers advertising turkeys. I feel like it's nearly Christmas again. Definitely a reason to be cheerful.

    I have some really lovely Irish neighbours here in London, and after Christmas I brought some spiced beef back for them because you can't get it here. They obviously froze it, because my neighbour dropped in to me yesterday with a chunk of spiced beef for me.

    My sandwich today tastes like Christmas :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,630 ✭✭✭Day Lewin


    Ah - cold spiced beef, thinly sliced, mere trace of mustard - best sandwich in the world.

    There's a rumour going around that in Cork, they eat spiced beef all year round - not just at Christmas!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,358 ✭✭✭Into The Blue


    I'm ashamed to say I've never heard of spiced beef.. Where would a lad buy some of that?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,247 ✭✭✭milli milli


    A lovely idea for a thread. Today my reason to be cheerful is I had a very positive day yesterday and today is my day off so I'm chilling out.
    The weather outside is a bit cold and it reminds me of winter (favourite season!)
    And later on in the week I have a lovely day shopping with my Mum.

    We always get it in Superquinn (now SuperValu), they get it in at the end of November and often run out of it by the time Christmas comes around.

    It is FINALLY summer (:

    I've tried the find the deer in the Phoenix Park a few times and I've never been able to. Last night we were driving through the park to pick up someone from Heuston and we saw them all right next to the road. We had plenty of time so we were able to park and go have a look. They're so cool. On the way back they were crossing the road so we got to see them again. No Rudolph though.

    Happy Friday!!! :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,005 ✭✭✭✭Toto Wolfcastle


    The weather is so gorgeous today. I love Christmas, but my favourite part of the year is when we get lovely sunny, warm weather like this. Little things like being able to throw on sandals to head out to the shops or having all the windows open and not being cold make me very happy.

    Two day week coming up :p Off to Dublin on Wednesday to see Dara O'Briain with an overnight stay at a lovely looking 4 star hotel right in the city center, and a nice old train journey there and back.

    Been far too long since I was on a train. I miss trains.

    I don't know if this is the right thread to put this in but had a very fun night last week at a Christmas-themed birthday party :D The birthday girl loves Christmas so there were Christmas decorations and lights put up, we all wore Christmas jumpers (some clever people wore Christmas t-shirts instead) and when she arrived we totally surprised her singing Happy Birthday and Jingle Bells :pac: It was in a small cinema and we had a surprise screening of Home Alone for her, so much fun!
