Xmas Preparations

Aw, man, it's only a week away?!

A great big thank you to Rockford for my first card of the year.
.. but, boy am I unprepared!!!

I haven't done any cards. I've only bought 3 gifts. We haven't yet done "the big Xmas shop" other than Mum getting a bargain Turkey from Tesco the other day.
I've spent the past few months getting ready for Advent, but Xmas seems a million miles away.

How prepared are you for Xmas?

Semi-prepped for chrimbo, just got the cards and the big shop to sort out, along with probably some more lil things for the kids.
Probably a bit more prezzie wrapping to sort out then also, ha!

Web / Game Dev, occasionally finishes off coding games also!

I'm done. Dusted and wrapped. Except one pressie that seems to have been stuck in the post for the last four years... Grrrrr!

o_O!? Four years?!!

Well, weeks really, but it feels longer...

Aaah, exaggeration for humorous effect! Gotcha!

Hope it turns up in time.

Can't believe it's only a week away.

Grinching this year, which I think is permissible given the circumstances.

Outside of family, I doubt I will get any cards, as I generally don't (LQQKs at Rockford). Dunno, for the longest time in MD, the only card I got was from my bank. Still proudly displayed it.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day I may/may not be on the air for some Round Tables, but will be hanging out at the chatroom over at the Radio site and avoiding any Christmas Karaoke.

Mum's going out to see if she can find another box of Xmas cards, after a discussion about her writing all the Street's cards out, last night..
I said "... 2022...?"
Mum said.. ... "?????"

Can we go back to the late 80's please? I really don't want to do 2020 all over again!

80s works for me, rockford. Miss it terribly.

That sneezing fit I get after sticking the swab up my nose.. .. Man, that never gets old..

We've got family coming around, so we're all doing our LF-tests, and sending each other the results.
Fun.. :/
Tonight should be a fun night, though. We haven't seen them since pre-Pandemic.

Family came 'round, and we all had a lovely night.
It's been a long long time since we had a room full of people.
Feckin' freezing' having to leave the window open a crack, mind.

But. Yeah, went well. Super Monkey Ball/Target/Billards went down as well as it had 20 years earlier, and we all had KFC... .. as you do!
(The recent closure of our favourite Chinese being one of the main topics of discussion for the night!)

Hope you all had a great holidays.

Coming soon : New year, and if it ends up being the same shit again, I'm going to go apeshit!!!

Glad you had a nice family get together

Monkey Ball makes everything better
