    Had planned to do one last weekend when putting up the tree as we had pals coming over. However the plans were scuppered when we had to cancel the pals coming over due to someone crashing into my OH (everyone was fine).

    The turkeys here are so moist compared to at home, probably because they are pumped full of stuff. We get butterballs here.

    You’ll have to have a do-over Jude. I was planning on getting a turkey leg this week but my plans changed. Maybe next week.

    I'm probably still in sleep mode, but where's here?

    UAE (& KSA) last 2 years. Oman for a good few years before that.

    I was thinking of a turkey this weekend but just got invited out to a brunch, we're not the sociable couple but we're trying a bit more so I think we are going. Hungover today so the thought of daytime boozing tomorrow is rough but tis the season.

    Weather was great, was about 7 degrees during the day and didn't rain until Monday but we were leaving that day so didn't mind!

    We hit Aldi last week and bought all the snow gear. Trousers, jackets, gloves. Flying out Monday morning, I thought I had another week to save, the time just flew.

    Euro Disney. We were on the couch with a few glasses of wine this time last year, and she got it into her head that we should go. I went down to the kitchen for a refill, Sat back down, and it and flights had been booked.

    Would have been cheaper to go see the lights in the zoo, but it wasn't public knowledge then they were doing it

    Happy Thanksgiving! Anyone doing a pre-Christmas turkey?

    Did the whole shooting gallery about two weeks ago - a trial run:D

    Anyone know what price an 8-10 foot real tree might be for outside?

    Picked up Kevin and Katie Carrot today in Aldi and a storybook about them. My god daughter be delighted when she gets them later!


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    I'd say there was a scramble for them today! They're very cute.

    I'm reading the Christmas supplement in the Irish Times. I love reading about other people's traditions. One person said they love the homemade chips on Christmas Day! That's what Christmas is about - pigging out.

    Programs are generally streamed live on the player and are generally uploaded when they have finished on plus one in my experience.
    The repeat used be on the Sunday afternoon after it aired but I don't know if this is the case anymore!

    I'm so jealous, can't wait to go back!! Download the app if you haven't already, tells you the wait times for the rides, really handy for planning and making the most of your time there. Enjoy!!

    Glitzgirl can I ask about your scarlet fever epidemic? My LO spent 2 nights in hospital with what we were told was a viral infection, she had a brutally sore throat (refusing food & drink) and an all-over rash. We weren't told anything about it being contagious and were allowed wander around Paediatrics without restrictions. The day after we got home, the skin on her toes started peeling. Dr. Google told me it was scarlet fever. Did this happen to your LO? My BIL is in Dublin and says there's been quite a few similar cases there.
    Hopefully you've survived the week without anyone else getting it!

    Usually put the tree up in the first week of December but I'm contemplating whether or not to put it up this weekend.

    Looking forward to having it up. Not looking forward to detangling the lights :)

    Went to H&M at lunchtime and they were playing Christmas music. Also noticed that a neighbour has their outside lights up.
