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.

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.

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

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

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

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!
