    i was told that one year the staff were given tokens for their special canteen xmas lunch, but the manager locked them in her desk and fucked off for her holidays

    Not sure yet, I hope my dad is going to come cos otherwise I don't think I can be bothered to cook for just myself as the kids aren't fond of roasts.

    It's actually easier to cook on a BBQ...



    Gives you oven room for everything else. (pics from my Dads in Oz 2 years ago)

    Oh bugger, it must be time to think about Christmas, if Urban has got its sodding Christmas forum out.

    Bah humbug and all that.

    I expect I will have a chestnut roast with all the trimmings, round at my parents' house, with both my siblings, their partners, my father, my daughter. and her partner. And possibly a few others. Who knows.

    Now I have to think about where to buy the ingredients from, and fret about when I will have time to go Fortnum and Masons and get ripped off again to buy their extortionate mince pies and pudding.

    Bah humbug, I say!

    Aww man! that sounds nice :cool: Only ever had the one christmas in london as an adult and didn't really go far. If I'm in London next christmas getting up early for a bike ride would be pretty :cool: I reckon.

    Hee hee! Just saw this! Great minds...!

    I have to say Soj and Nipsla christmas day's sound very nice too :cool:

    Hopefully it'll be mostly just me and my mum having a very nice relaxed day with no rush to get the dinner on...which we'll prob cook together. My brother is staying at his house and with any luck my crap dad will only make a fleeting visit, or turn up and fall asleep in the front room and miss dinner.

    No. They just used to live in the States and decided that barbequing the turkey gave more room in the kitchen for all the other stuff. Plus it gives my dad something to do - it's the only cooking he ever does :rolleyes:

    I'll be having Christmas dinner with lovely lodger. Only he won't be lovely lodger any more, he's just bought a house, so he's invited me over for Christmas dinner, which we'll be having with his dad, who'll be up from London.

    I've managed tgo get christmass off work so me and boyfriend are heading up north to be with my family:) I'm so excited! I haven't seen my neices and nephews for ages, I am so chuffed
  24. trashpony

    We were supposed to be but my sister isn't well enough to host so we're going to my mum's :(

    That would have been lovely too.
  25. moonsi til

    moonsi til worked it out now!

    I really don't know. Until I broke my foot I was working 1-9pm on xmas day so would have eaten a lush Indian takeaway at work.

    Now my sick-note doesn't cover me up till xmas day so I might still be doing that...my family (sisters, neice & nephew) live about 250 miles away and due to work I had not planned on being with them. Now it will be very odd if I'm off work and not with them...my sick note expires on 21st Dec so will get my foot reviewed the week before.
  26. sojourner

    sojourner Where's me readers?

    :( Can't believe you're working again on xmas day
  27. AnnO'Neemus

    AnnO'Neemus Is so vanilla

    Honestly, the things some people will do to wriggle out of their Christmas Day shift! :rolleyes:


    (((moonsi til)))

    P.s. Are you taking notes OU? :hmm:
  28. moonsi til

    moonsi til worked it out now!

    LOL....:) My boss said the same yesterday! It's a pain as it means someone else will have to work it if I'm not back and that will scupper their plans.

    I may yet still be working. I might have recovered enough to be office based by then.

    sorry, but i'm not going to deliberately ruin someone else's xmas by skiving.
    (not suggesting moonsi til is either)

    I got it a a Christmas fair I was at a couple of weeks ago. I had a taster and it's fucking lush. It's from these people:


    It's £16 for one pud on their website (was £12 at the fair) but they're quite large. To be honest I wouldn't normally spend that much but it was lovely and I had cash burning a hole in my pocket :oops::D
