Ms Funky has started shopping on-line already. Do I get consulted about anything? No, is the answer. Just hand over me debit card, when needed.
Things have changed since I were a nipper. I used to work a 30 hour day down the pit try telling the kids to day that . They all want something for nothing . We were so poor had only one plate for family of 15, had to share it, take turns using it. Those were t'days.

Can't wait! Looking forward to a segment of a chocolate orange, if I can get there before the bloomin' dogs! Probably have to settle for a rotten walnut:rolleyes2:

November? My grandmother would turn in her grave. Sprouts need to be in by April at the latest to be properly cooked for Christmas.:sleep-040:

With the Olympics ocurring I understood the Government extended sunday shopping hours this summer and in doing so cancelled christmas this year as they would use up the shopping hrs early. Might be that I misunderstood the politicians.

Due to the increase in Health and safety legislation. Christmas will not take place this year for the following reasons:

Santa must obtain a full pilots licence.

Santa's sledge does not conform to construction and use of vehicles act 2011 sec 3 para2: Vehicles made to carry toys must have an unladen weight no greater than 3 tonnes. It must be fitted with proper wings and have all navigation lights.

Beard must be trimmed so that it cannot be caught up in moving machinery and red coats must be replaced with a proper flying suit.

Reindeer must not **** from high altitudes and any laughing and insults / calling names toward a member of a team must cease immediately.

Under the animal welfare act Santa will be prosecuted for using an animal likely to cause distress due to a sore nose.

Elves are now classed as vertically challenged persons and cannot be made to work more than an 8 hour day and their workshop must be equipped with required hoists and lifting gear.

Santa's weight has to be reduced by 5 stone to conform to health requirements in the shipping industry.

A 50 trillion insurance policy must be taken out to cover. Loss of toys overboard during flight / damage to chimney pots and hearths.

All flying objects travelling into British airspace will be stopped and searched for illegal substances.

It is illegal for anyone to enter a private residence through any aperture without the owners consent. Leaving a mince pie out will be construed as an agreement to enter provided the pie is:
1/ Within it's sell by date.
2/ Manufactured on premises covered by the health and safety acts
3/ It must be covered and or wrapped to eliminate foreign bodies entering the product.

Anyone caught trying to pass themselves off as the official Santa Clause (Copyright W Disney inc) will be prosecuted.

You were lucky.....

We were so poor that we couldn't afford heating in the winter, so me dad would suck a Polo mint and we'd all sit round his tongue!:cry:
