Well the mince pie sell out wasn't my fault, I only bought one box (and that was from Tesco) they lasted me six days (now that's willpower)  ;D
Christmas 2019 - I plan to follow your lead, just one box of 6 mince pies, right?......

A new year and Brexit beckons - organisations with foresight and a willingness to embrace new technology will show the way to success (?!)....... O0

So, our Christmas 2018 activities are over - but spare a thought for the 24/7 organisation that never sleeps, where it's business as usual.... O0

It's difficult to see how I can avoid a close encounter with my local Weight Watchers Girl.......

Anybody get a Christmas present they actually wanted and needed? I did, but I was with Mrs Peg Monkey when she bought it so there was a good chance of the right outcome - seriously, why do we buy our friends and relatives things they don't need and want? Why not agree to no presents but a donation to charity? (Not kids - they still get their visit from Santa.)
I can hear shouts of Peg - Bah Humbug! From here.

I generally only get presents I want or need.  My group of family & friends usually ask each other if there's anything we'd like.  Stocking fillers tend to be things like chocolate or wine so there's never anything wasteful.

I once got given a jar of Mango Chutney as a Christmas present, only thing was it was 2yrs past its use by date - but it's the thought that counts, right?
Anyway, Christmas chocs have now all gone and Mrs Peg Monkey has demolished her usual 5 cartons of Turkish delight......

I need to control my weight for medical reasons, when attending a lecture on diet at my local hospital I asked the nurse who was delivering the lecture: Can a giant wedge of carrot cake be one of my 5 fruit and veg a day?
I'm sure I don't need to  repeat what she said.
