you know Hedgerow Pete - I am not really surprised :(- you give off those vibes - but what a shame-

Lovely when families get together.:grouphug:
I am going to miss 2 sons who will be abroad this year, and a Mum recently died, - but the good side- the first Christmas for 40 years that I haven't cooked the meal - so will be at another sons house whilst he (and she) cook :cheers2: I will just explore stocking contents with grandchildren

I have even had years when I have cooked a Christmas lunch for 30 for the elderly in my residential home then cooked a Christmas meal in the evening for the family (12). This year will be such a relaxed time :xmas-smiley-013:

SORRY BUT I STILL HATE CHRISTMAS.
humbug humbug humbug, its not the family friends or evan religon , it helps that i am religus but what kills it for me is the rediculus costs of every thing. when we had the kids , just as my dad did , we were never allowed to give a present that was over £5 in cost unless we made it our selves and most importantly we were never to give a present unless it was usefull or practical, the best pressent i gave my father and the one he kept on using was a top quality eastwing hammer, when given his first word were great i ve needed a new hammer for ages. what i hate is the fact that unless you are £1,000 in debt after wards the kids not seem to have enjoyed it,

the biggest arguement the wife and i have ever had was at xmas, we almost start a divorce or it she hated me so much for it, the cause,

i brought a card board box for my son when he was 3 a massive washing machine box, empty of course, he loved it , egnored all his shop brought presents and spent the next week living in it, we had windows cut into it for a house paper plates on the other side made it a car and upright it was a rocket, she went blooming mad over it , shame realy he still talks about it now , ho hum back to being humbug again,
bah humbug

I enjoy Christmas, a great excuse to stay in and drink followed by ritual arguments over the TV controls.

Valentines day, now that's a commercial rip-off. I have only ever bought my wife ONE valentines day card. A Tesco's Value range in Blue and white a few years back. She still has it and every year it goes on display (she knows I will not buy another one). 39p ... bargain....
