    It's not Christmas until Noddy Holder says it is.

    Which means it was Christmas on November 30th by Tesco's reckoning.

    I hadn't heard of this 'Last Christmas' game people are playing. Loads of the blokes in the office were blabbing on about it, boasting that they'll win, generally irritating etc

    Out came Spotify on my phone and I sorted them all out in one go, none of them will be winning cock all

    I like your style, captain.

    Mrs. Gremlin makes a mean fruit cake. This year's has been slowly maturing since summer and has downed a half-bottle of Chivas in that time. Once the fucking horrible icing and marzipan has been removed and binned, a slab of cheese with it goes very well.

    Me and my little boy love mince pies so the Mrs starts getting them when they first come out in the shops. Think it was Oct time I had my first of this winter I then stock pile them so they last me till about Feb

    Mrs did go a bit bonkers when pregnant with our 2nd and managed to stockpile 12 boxes. Took me a while to get through.
