The Main Blog Is Back…

Hopefully, this time for longer than two effing hours.

Thanks for your patience. Again.

So What Will You Be Doing For Christmas This Year?


Christmas is at our house again this year, which is just the way I like it. I’ll be doing the cooking, which I really don’t mind, because it gives me a chance to show off my culinary skills. I actually do have them, I just don’t get to use them that often. I’ve just managed to finish the Big Christmas Shop today, and when I go and collect TTG from the airport tomorrow, his job will be to choose the alcohol.

This is my menu this year:


Pork and Apricot Pate (I can never remember how to get the French accent on my keyboard), served with melted applewood-smoked cheese on French toast, accompanied by mixed salad and tangy orange sauce.


Tomato and basil soup served with crusty white cobs

    Main Course

Stuffed roasted chicken, seasoned with lemon pepper, accompanied by creamed button sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower, honey-glazed roasted potatoes, my special cheesy mashed potatoes and swede, sausage wrapped in Applewood smoked bacon, and pork, cranberry and apple stuffing.


Baked nutmeg and cinnamon creamed rice pudding, Christmas pudding and custard (a shout out to TTG’s mum for making the Xmas pudding)freshly made raspberry trifle, or lemon cheesecake.

This year’s Xmas entertainment will include a Nintendo Wii tournament, Pictionary challenge, and a Trivial Pursuits competition.

As always, I’m looking forward to spending time with my family. We are all incredibly close, and I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be on Christmas Day, than spending time with the ones I love the most.

What will you guys be doing?

And It’s Effing Gone Again

Hi Guys, the main blog is down again, I’ve made the decision to move servers. I was going to wait until the New Year, but I seriously do not need this crap, so I’m saying ta-ta to Hostmonster.

Anyway, thanks very much for bearing with us, and hopefully, it will be a smoother transition, than the last time I did this.

The Main Blog Is Back

Hi Peeps, it looks like the main blog is back, unfortunately, many of your last comments weren’t backed up, and so have been lost, but at least the blog is back again.

Thanks for bearing with us!

Moral Dilemma Friday: Would You Help Him?


For the people who’ve bothered to pop over, I thought I’d give you a moral dilemma to chew over, so that you don’t have to keep refreshing the page to within an inch of your life, only to find no new posts.

You’re walking along one evening, when you come across a guy who’s obviously been badly beaten on the ground. You rush over to help him, being the fine upstanding citizen that you are. Once you get close to him, you realise that you know who he is.

He is the local paedophile, who served time for raping and molesting several young girls a few years ago. He’s now out of prison, and was determined to get on with his life.

What do you do?

Do you help him out, like the fine upstanding citizen that you are, thinking that he’s served his time, and should be given the chance to move on, or do you leave him bleeding on the ground, because animals like him don’t deserve second chances?

What would you do?

For Those Who Have This Blog On GoogleReader…

We’re currently experiencing difficulties with the main blog, server problems etc. We’ll be back as soon as it’s sorted.
