And Then, We Did It….

It seems the whole country took note of the ‘Jolly’ post as the news this morning is reporting that we are set to spend one point two billion pounds today. Today being the Saturday before Christmas.  Man, we all did some super scrimping and saving to service this season did we not? What? Oh, right.

Anyhoo, well done you!! And I’m sure that by this evening you’ll all be absolutely overflowing with a wondrous feeling of satisfaction, jollification. Or abject misery.

The question now is, how to keep that jolly demeanour when, come early January, the credit card statements start dropping, like sacks o’ wet cement, onto the doormat. Good luck with that!!

Finally, personally, I’ve seen so much turkey on TV these past few weeks that I really never want to see another one – alive or cooked. I have nothing to say on the subject of sprouts.

“Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.”
