seriously @mattx....look what you've done...this is bloody hilarious you miserable to****!
Miss ya! lol x
Hey, not long to go then we can all argue about Easter.......
Humbug... But I'm going to have to pretend to enjoy it as my new wife has two under ten, and a 14yr old. Still, enough wiskey, and the cats climbing the tree, and I could find something to laugh about!
Well, the inlaws have disappeared 1500km west to Ontario, so that's problem number 1 solved (TFFT). The rest of my family are back in the UK, so christmas this year will be very different for us all. The kids aren't getting much this christmas, no I'm not being a tight git, I want them to learn what real family time is, and that it is more valuable than any gift. I've lost a number of family members around this time of year, and only last week lost my nephew, but you have to put that to rest and enjoy what you have. I am looking forward to christmas, and that's the first time I've said that in many years. I'll miss my family back home, but we're skyping the grandparents xmas morning and after that we are on radio silence. Just us, the snow, and some good whiskey..... Well, I'll enjoy the whiskey anyway.
And if the inlaws try to spoil it, it'll be a shovel and two dinks.... one across the head, and one as I break the soil :D
Oh but @mattx....I was relying on you for some book ideas for mrwITch this year - you always do so well. But I will be giving them to him for Christmas so you might not want to help, given your feelings about that occasion :)
Patrick Robinson - Any of the books with Admiral Arnold Morgan (Starting from Nimitz Class and ending with Too The Death)...very good series of books...not all reliant on the previous for the story line, but it does help. < If your man enjoys gritty military fiction.
Afraid I'm in the hate Christmas camp, but enjoy those kind of books :
(Good SF - first of a series) : Seeds Of Earth: Book One of Humanity's Fire: Amazon.co.uk: Michael Cobley: Books
(End of the world SF, with a sequel) : Flood: Amazon.co.uk: Stephen Baxter: Books
Neither is up there with the greats but they are (IMO) enjoyable.
@Little-Miss thank you for putting up the picture of the Gir-Elf....it made me smile, which is good because I fell like i'm about to die from stupid children diseases
Aww! Everyone loves a bit of Gir!!!
