    A tip for you, or anyone else going to Curry's in Jervis. To skip the queue, show interest in a speaker / ipad..whatever it is. Call one of the assistants over. Tell him you'll get one. He'll get one from the cabinet and let you pay at one of the tills on the floor. You won't have to go into the big queue. :) If you have an item reserved, just show one of the lads on the floor. I'm sure they'll help you out and you won't have to go to the main queue then.

    Do the kitchen clean
    All the groceries (including picking up turkey & ham)
    Buy one more pressie
    Wrap pressies
    Clean out the big bathroom (we've been using it as a location for spraypainting bottles for the wedding!)
    Do a massive run to the bottle bank
    Make chilli jam & maybe some cookies etc nearer the big day
    Finish work (I finish up on Thursday)

    All this would be so much easier if I didn't now have bronchitis and on steroids and antibiotics! FFS.

    Then start christmas prep, so quite a bit to do. We do have all Santa stuff bought and packed away at least :)

    Does Santa know your new address? It would be an awful shame if he delivered your presents to your old house.

    Just the cake left to ice, and I have to fix the door wreath, because it's lopsided! :pac:

    I'll have to ask my wife if there's anything left to do. She seemed very busy of late, so I suspect all is as near ready as can be.

    finished work today thankfully:P.

    have santa finished weeks now, and wrapped them all earlier tonight.
    have everyone's presents in too.
    just need to do some food shopping tomorrow. i don't go mad on the xmas food, just a normal food shop.

    other than that i'm going to have a chill weekend now.
    thinking of strolling into town xmas eve, and get a hot chocolate.

    at some stage i'll get the oven cleaned.
    also want to do some painting over the next week too because its the only free time i have to do it :cool:
