Getting Into The Mood [Dec. 24th, 2014|09:49 am]
Tony Grist
We're doing Christmas dinner today- 24 hours early- for logistical reasons- by which I mean we decided we didn't want to try and get my mother up and down the steps to my sister's house. My sister and her husband will go ahead and have their main Christmas tomorrow with children and grandchildren- but they're coming over here today to join in our quieter celebration as well.

Ailz is in charge of cooking the turkey. She wanted to do it and I didn't so we're both happy. She's just come down and plonked herself beside me and said, "I've realised this is the first Christmas since I was 18 that I haven't been in debt."

Sad news this morning about Helena Bonham-Carter and Tim Burton. None of my business of course, but I liked the idea of them continuing in conjoined whackiness till death did them part.  I thought they were examples to us all. Ah, well...

Ailz is opening a box of crackers. The label on the box says they're unsuitable for people under 14. What on earth do you think is in them- knives?

Was also bummed about Helena and Tim. And working on getting into the xmas mood! I did well for solstice but this is feeling like a stretch.

It's afternoon now and I reckon that's Xmas done and dusted. It would be nice to doze through the rest of the season.

Rumour was the siren call of Younger Woman outrated any accomplishment, facet of beauty or nuance of personality that the Helena Bonham Carter, the mother of Tim's children, had to offer.

If that sounds bad-tempered, it's because the thought of it makes me bad tempered. And for him to make that judgement!

I was most impressed to see a sign in Waitrose warning that crackers couldn't be sold to anyone under 18, due to explosives legislation. Now there are some serious crackers.

(If finances weren't quite so feeble, I'd've likely bought a set from Master of Malt - each contains a dram of some fine whisky or another. Beats a terrible joke, ne?)
