There's nothing at all wrong with making your mum happy. Plus you get good dinners out of it. Are you being taken out for improving trips to stately homes and museums and such?
Sounds like he could fly a jet then. Tractors / jets...what's the difference.

Mums spag bol, no spaghetti, stick of garlic bread. It's a banger. The fridge will be stocked with ham and bacon. Her record is providing over 4 bacon sandwiches in 24 hours.
Less stately homes, more shopping at Gunwharf (I know, but there's a Loakes store there) and walks in the New Forest and down at Hengistbury Head.
I get more excited each time I talk to you about it. It's like my internet Mum is excited for me.

He operated a clutch better than I do, for sure. Do planes have clutches?

Well, you won't see the Little Lion at Gunwharf since he's holed up in Liverpool with the girlfriend.

If your mum is buying you bespoke shoes for Christmas, I hope you will be taking her breakfast in bed.

And it's vicarious excitement for me, since I can't see the Little Lion I can be happy that another mum and son get to spend some time together. Not sure I want to be your internet mum though, I don't need anyone else to worry about.

This nod to Alex Trebek google has done. If you ever watched Jeopardy you will understand.

Thank you. It's not hard, loads of love, loads of cuddles, loads of play, loads of food and water and tons of litter tray cleaning all lead to happy, healthy, friendly, affectionate fur babies.

I used to look forward to going back and renting a manual, but now I only hire autos. Can't be bothered with it all.
What a guy, if you're going into lockdown may as well do it with some entertainment. Expect an announcement in Feb/March? August baby? Named Covid?
Weirdly, she typically does the coffees in the morning when I'm home. I generally make brekkie for us when I'm downstairs. She THOROUGHLY enjoys having a chauffeur for the time I'm back and I always have a list of jobs that involves anything high up, heavy or big. There'll be no Xmas decs until I'm home to go in the loft, her mattress will need flipping and I doubt the outdoor furniture has been put away for winter.
OK, I'll just pretend you like the title.

All this talk of Mums is lovely. Mine's a true bastard at times (and only my Sister and I can say that) but there's nobody I want a cuddle off more when I'm down and nobody who I'd rather see smiling and happy.

That's parents for you. Mine were tough and cuddles were not a thing but really they were the ones to know me and who did fit me so well. You enjoy your cuddles and love giving out the smiles as those are worth more than the stars.

Yeah, you're right. She's absolutely guilted me this Christmas. Doesn't want anything other than 'time' with me.

Hard to do from 3,500 miles but that's why she'll have said it; to have a little dig...but I forgive her. She's had a tough year on her own, I'm sure I'll hear it all when I'm back. But such is, let her grumble on and then do something nice, and it'll all be forgotten and we'll just be having fun and a nice time.

Did you miss the explosive action or were you watching the football?

Decorated the Christmas tree with lights and also placed lights in the garden, looks great and definitely made me smile.
