Heaven Knows I’m Chrismerable Now!

December 24, 2008

Well no not really – but I quite like singing that instead of the real version – better than singing all or one of the three versions of Hallelujah that has given me insomnia for the last three days. Finally the manflu, ladyflu and minimanflu has abated. I was very organised despite being on death’s door. The tree was up on Dec 5th. See picture of tree – it is an alternative to the usual.


The cards were posted two weeks ago. It’s just that I forgot accidently on purpose to get the parsnips as quite frankly they are the devil’s food! So I apologise to my Christmas guests but there are lots of other vegetables to eat so don’t worry. My signature tipple of tomorrow will be Prosecco with pomegranate – I shall have one for and toast each and everyone of you my glorious blogfriends. Lots of love and chin chin xx

PS: there is an absolutely brilliant piece of writing about Chrizzmarse here if you are at a loose end

PPS: I rather un-Christmasly but with huge satisfaction called a teenager a lumbering idiot in Primark today as she slumpered into my changing cubicle that was most obviously occupied – then I spent the next ten minutes silently giggling to myself. No – I will not be going to heaven but we knew that anyway.

    I like parsnips but not potatoes as I can’t get them down. This makes me very odd according to everybody at work.<br/><br/>Do you have to parboil parsnips?

    Parsnips are gods own vegetable – roasted of course. Well roasted. Caramelly.<br/>I called my 8yr old a dumb klutz today. She is still in a huff with me, but it was worth it.

    Parsnips with carrots mashed with salt and plenty of black pepper.<br/>I’m not going to heaven either.<br/>I got the Christmas tree out of the forest, the best I could get and it was something like shot at and missed- dreadful but it went up and will be till after the new year, and I’d like to wish you and yours the very very best in 2009;-)
