Under the floorboards, taking notes...
Working, then casting my vote in a game of charades.
Monster Racing Loony Party got your vote?

Today I was dropping off a Christmas Hamper to my brother (long time members might remember) - enough Christmas food to keep should he wish to cook his own meal, presents, chocolates, etc. I didn't go in, I just handed things over, made small talk, and left. I am not expecting to see him on Christmas, but have no objection to seeing him.

Just been micro-needling my skin. This probably sounds like a form of torture, but it's not that bad. Anyway, I've managed to take about 20 years of sun damage off my skin and remove the bags under my eyes, so it's worth it.

ETA - also managed to remove a fairly nasty scar I got from spilling boiling water on my hand. Gone in 6 weeks! :)

Supporting a local hunt on its Boxing Day meet:





Hound practises psychokinesis skills on my flask of hot chocolate



This little lass wanted to take all the animals home:









Awwww!

And the clearup begins:

This is ALSO the same place and probably room and probably people where the /last/ time I voted I managed to get the handles of my walker stuck under the shelf you use to write on....
I would report them as the polling station is not DDA compliant. You won’t get anything but they will get a little hot under the collar

Beautiful. My wife and I wanted to get out to one in Essex but we are both full of germs. We have a lovely limited edition Debbie Boon painting of foxhounds on our hall wall which we adore.

Visited my recently widowed auntie, but spent most of the visit chatting with my cousin's little daughter. She has learning difficulties, poor wee soul, but she's exhaustingly cheery. Anyway, got a present I wasn't expecting, a gift card that was surprisingly expensive. Don't think I'm worth that!

Went out to the charity shop first time in a long time, found a skirt that i fell in love with, it was one practically like the black kilt one that was on here, @Frideswide would remember it, it was a size 14, imma 16, or, i was, i am now a 14, lost a lot of weight i have, i am overjoyed about it, i had a heavy chain to attach on the front, it looks impressive, my friend paid for it, it was just under a fiver, theeeeeen, we on ebay and a single bed i have wanted with a lift up base for storage came up, my friend got it for £40, we pick it up tomorrow, she paid for that as well, im poor at the moment, but the bed and the skirt made me so happy, I know it sounds pathetic, but i cant help it, sorry

It's not pathetic at all, @Shady, it's a lot to celebrate :) Congrats on the weight loss, and hope the bed pick-up goes well.

Oooh, people have been suffocated by those!
Aren't you thinking of the Z-Bed things? The ones that fold up, concertina style?

Whereas I think Shady is talking about the storage divans which hinge up to provide storage access below the mattress.

Of course I could be wrong on either one or both of the above.
