Thu 23 Dec 2010 10:33:01 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Fifi, I too had the honour of a sprout-card. Did make me laugh. Time for morning coffee, methinks, with something Christmassy on which to nibble. Thu 23 Dec 2010 10:28:01 GMT+1 funnyJoedunn I received a card from a family (as I do each year) who send out a yearly news letter with it. It tells of the holidays, work promotions, the kids schooling achievements and how good life is treating them all. Oh and look, this is us at Euro Disney, and here we are meeting so and so from the Olympic swimming team visiting the kids school. (photos supplied)I find it all excruciating as, I have not the slightest interest in how stuck up their own selves they are. Stop sending out Christmas news letters I say. They only make people dislike you and your kids and your pets. Ba humbug! Thu 23 Dec 2010 09:52:52 GMT+1 DiY Oh, by the way, I have fed the Gulls!

Wed 22 Dec 2010 19:57:02 GMT+1 Phoenix The CEO of OTAT Enterprises has foregone his annual bonus because of some unfortunate decsions he took that the Moderators did not approve of.However his decision not to award himself the bonus was itself a first rate decision.He has therefore awarded himself a huge bonus for getting it right. Wed 22 Dec 2010 19:46:09 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Ellis, could it be because he isn't going anywhere? I'm not going to moan about how cold it is in RL but I would like another ten logs thrown on that beach bonfire please. *tinkles little bell* Wed 22 Dec 2010 19:39:37 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter Leonid just said he's got nothing to declare...

I've just got a HUGE sprout tree!Anyone up for a bit of tree decorating? Wed 22 Dec 2010 16:01:52 GMT+1 Lady_Sue Ellis, if it were me, I'd have continued asking and hopefully ticked several more things off the list. Last year (due to be snowed in and unable to get out to get provisions) we had roast turkey thigh sandwiches and skipped the pud. In fact the latter is still in the fridge. Wed 22 Dec 2010 15:53:33 GMT+1 Ellis P Otter It was one Christmas perhaps twenty years ago when the whole clan was gathered together when the Matriarch asked, on Christmas Eve."Do any of you actually like sprouts cooked with chestnuts?"There was a unanimous nay and the most obnoxious Otter family tradition firmly bit the dust. That was a fabulous holiday. Wed 22 Dec 2010 15:40:48 GMT+1 gossipmistress Must be afternoon tea time. Sprout loaf anyone? Christmas Sprout cake? Stollenschprout? Wed 22 Dec 2010 15:28:39 GMT+1 Stewart_M Pnutt, That certainly lined my stomach. It'll help those sprouts. Woman's Hour had a lesson in Sprout cooking this morning.
