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.
