  4. If there was just one of you and no-one to share with (or row with!) it would be no fun. Pour yourselves a glass of mulled wine (or two), test a bit more of the Christmas cake, if there's any left... and sit and enjoy your tree. Hope you're not working tonight!

  5. CHRIS I want this nice shiny star on top!
    JOHN No way. It has to be a fairy! Give it here!
    CHRIS Screw your damned plastic fairy! You get your way every year! (He grabs the fairy and stomps on it)
    JOHN Boo hoo! What did you do that for? That was a leaving gift from The All Bar One staff in Sheffield!
    CHRIS Well I got this star from The Wales Office for Research and Development.
    JOHN What for that paper - "Realist Synthesis of Integrated Health and Social Care"?
    WINIFRED Grrrr! WOOF! WOOF!
    ALBERY MiaaaaooooOOOW! (Zooms upstairs)
    CHRIS Yeah! That one.
    JOHN Well, it bored me to tears.
    CHRIS Bitch! (He thumps John in the solar plexus)

    4. John - No I haven't "bugged" your cottage. Your various pets have bugged it. Try "Imaverol".

  6. This is why only one person should ever do the tree. and then when the other person goes to bed you arrange it properly. or you do a me, put lights on it and call it done.

  9. My husband has learned after thirty years that if the garland is not properly draped on the tree there is no Christmas cheer in our house.

    And I have learned that I have a jewel of a husband!

  10. That sounds familiar.

  11. Oh yes, I remember it well!, now I do it My Way. Both puns intentional.

  14. We always fall out over the fairy lights, how to store them, why they have knots in them ,some of the bulbs don't work etc etc, all part of the fun.

  16. I had to re-read that title to make sure it wasn't a personal message.

  17. I am dense. I thought you were putting up a row of trees. My husband always became a monster even before the decorating started. He just hated getting the tree straight in the stand. Our ceiling is high so we always had a big tree. Notice I said had.

  18. Ah Christmas traditions....gotta love 'em.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Christmas rows - as traditional as the tree etc!

  20. I usually do the tree alone, then Jay comes in and moves things around.

  23. I've just been told, in no uncertain terms, that Lady Magnon will be dressing our tree this year. She's fed-up with my jokey decorations, and Mickey Mouse fairy, and wants things done 'properly'. She's so dull.

  24. my kids did the tree this year ... I came home to find a vision of beauty xx

  25. Not sure whether you mean 'row' as in argument or 'row. as in 'line' but presume the latter as i think I can see stairs in the background. I think we can say that the season has really begun. So Happy Christmas.

  26. It's not Christmas until the first Christmas row!!
