Can't help you with that. It has been a humid 81 degrees here today. Another reason not to feel Christmassy

Mind you it is supposed to drop into the 30's tomorrow :zzz:

Strange, it's going to be in the 70s here tomorrow. Colder Monday though, thanks to Texas wind blowing this way!

It hit 78 here in Miss today and right now it is still 73. Christmas lights are on and does look Christmassy but wearing cutoffs and a t-shirt is not the norm for this northern gal.

I want my Christmas cookies to have arrived in Jersey before they spoil. But Santa used USPS this year and priority isn't working :thumbdown:

I have sausage rolls and mince pies now.

It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas, with the A/C blowing and the oven throwing out heat and Santa on a fire truck.

Nope. There is work to be done here. If you want food make your way to Sugarmooma's open house gift wrap, tree decorating, grocery shopping , house cleaning , alcohol drinking , Christmas song singing Sunday special.

I'm waiting:sneaky:

We have about 3' of it piled up in our front yard right now, which you're more than welcome to.

Personally I'd like

1) no snow, because we've had enough of it already
2) some form of cake
3) more than one day off work but I'm too late now
4) a nice lie in
5) peace and quiet

If I can get 3 of these 5, I'll call it a success :D

Just finished talking with my daughter in New York who is off all of next week. She is delighted that she works for a British company in Westchester who closes down the entire operations for the week between Xmas and New Year's. On Friday they are taking all the employees to lunch on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx for an Italian Christmas lunch and last Thursday came around with gifts for everyone and a bonus.

Nice one.

I saw a whole bunch of arsebook mates back home posting "No more work until next year". Bastards.

Still, it's two 3-day weekends this year, which I suppose is OK.

I'm hoping for, and dropped many hints, at a new Swiss Army Knife. I didn't bring mine over and i'm lost without it.

I'm sending an ice cream truck up. The driver will off load the ice cream in your yard, and fill the truck up with snow.

Presents still not wrapped.
No food.
Tree is decorated with the help of grandbaby and her grandad. It is a colourful mish mash!
I have wangled off Tuesday next week so I will have one extra day, yeah me.
And the Daily Mail is giving out spoilers on the Bake Off. I'm not amused:thumbdown:

You might need a few trucks, we've quite a bit in our yard.

A lot of it will melt before the end of the week, if the temperatures I've heard are on the way turn out to be true, so he might want to get a move on.

I've not exactly completed my xmas shopping yet, let alone wrap them all yet. I've still got 3 people to go :unsure:

I'm gonna be taking a sneaky trip to the mall today to try and remedy this. I hope it leads to a wacky Jingle all the way adventure that ends up in a Parade. I suspect it will however just end up with rage, disappointment and panic and possibly an arrest.

Is that the one when someone's taken over the TV, switched that on then sat on the remote but you've had too much food to be arsed getting up, so you drink yourself into a coma so you don't have to watch it?

Tisk tisk, there is *always* drinking involved with a LINYC party. Especially with GBBO.

On topic, seeing as how my pleas for a flame thrower earlier in the year have thus far been fruitless, I'd like tickets to Hamilton please. :fingerscrossed:

If I were being forced to watch it, I can see myself drinking heavily, I'd give you that.
