WORTH THE WEIGHT

Well here we are again. Another Christmas been and gone. All that planning, shopping, cooking, cleaning; all that waiting for the special day and now it's GONE!!! Oh but wasn't it worth every moment..........the memories that will linger on. All the happy faces; the special presents; the scrumptious food; the merry making drinks. So many memories to treasure.
Of course there is the down side; the first post since Christmas is a BILL; standing on the scales I've put on 9 pound in a week!!!!.......I mean I've been on my feet for days cooking, cleaning etc........I didn't eat THAT much.......did I???.......; then there's all that clearing up to do; that oven that I talked myself out of cleaning before Christmas is screaming out..........CLEAN ME.....CLEAN ME; and then there's all the left over food and drink that will have to be consumed.........must dig out my "101 TURKEY RECIPES" book; all those boxes of chocolates to be eaten.........can see a few more pounds going on there; OH BUT IT WAS WORTH IT!!!!!....................

THIS WAS IN MY CHRISTMAS CRACKER

IS SOMEONE TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING?

it's water retention....honest!!!!!!!

OUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS CRACKER JOKE THIS YEAR;

What's the difference between a lighthouse keeper, a thief and a pot of glue?

One watches over seas, one seizes watches. And the pot of glue?........Ah that's where you get stuck!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit. I am really giving my brain a rest - can one suffer from salt dough block?

Oh yes, my friend from Germany visited your blog, he says although the translation is not really grammatically correct, it is good enough so that visitors who understand no or little English, will be able to read your blog.
(I still have troubles installing it on my blog...)

Enjoy these last few days of 2006
