Christmas Eve. 2019.

Where’s The Saint Emoticom? I’ve been at it for days and everything is done, bar cooking The Turkey. I’ve even parboiled The Sprouts, which on reflection will probably be quite enough for them. And they will almost certainly all be drunk by the time the turkey is cooked so won’t care anyway. I might just join them.  The dinner guests that is and not The Sprouts.  Perhaps I will chuck some Vodka into The Sprouts  One has to do something with them after all.

I’ve even Brined The Turkey.  A quaint not so old American custom.

Food Bank later today and I’ve still got to buy the makings for Bucks Fizz.  Lidl is best.  Their Pop is 1 Euro 50 centimes a bottle.  Six bottles of that will hopefully be enough, although I could always buy two cases at that price.  There is always The Feast of Stephen.  That’s Boxing Day, for the uninitiated..  And no one I know can tell the difference between Lidl Pop and Champagne, not even me.  By the way, who in their right mind puts Orange Juice in Champagne?

2020.  That I should have lived this long.  Let’s hope it’s a bit less stressful than 2019.  A lesser tough old cookie than me would be dead by now, but I haven’t screwed enough out of The Pension yet.  Ha Ha!  They obviously didn’t see me coming.  Beside, my Not Best Friend is still alive.  No way am I going first.  I will miss her, but then I always have.

O’Connor?  The less said about him then the better for the moment.  He is awfully sweet and so very funny.  Love ya to bits, you horrible little swine.

I did pay homage to The God of The Winter Solstice, which is what it’s all about for me, although God knows who that one is.  I am a Lunar Person so I’ll go for that one.

Have a good year, you all.

    I will probably finish up with a bunch of guests passed out on various articles of furniture, including the wrecked settee.
    Meanwhile, I will stay upright to supervise O’Conner cleaning up the plates. So that will be his Christmas dinner sorted.

    Oh, and Bon Noel to you. Or is it Bonne Noel?
