Deer oh dear


Affable Despot Jason has been making deconstructed reindeer all morning. It's his daughter Liv's birthday today and the children at her party will be making one each as part of the party game.
He delivered one to us yesterday which had pride of place in the living room, at least when we get sick of it we can burn it!
I've just dropped Liv's birthday card round, they've had to leave their house front door open because of the glue fumes!
I saw policewoman Jo out walking her dog soon after. She was on the way to ours with a christmas card and wanted to know if I was still wearing my pyjamas under my trousers like I was when she saw me this morning.
I assured her that I was wearing proper underwear like a normal man!!
( but I had to think twice)

  2. John, I have a question - have you ever gotten a large, unusual amount of hits from a different country? (Besides US, I mean?) Please check my fb and tell me if I have need to worry.
    Thanks in advance.

  4. I love the deer. If it wasnt so far I would ask him to make me one. Do not burn it ! I also think it great fun for a party far more fun than pass the parcel.

  5. Are you suggesting that ADJ's reindeer would be better used as firewood? I'll tell him!

  6. the reindeer adds to the charm of your home.

    "I assured her that I was wearing proper underwear like a normal man!!" - if you went commando, you wouldn't have to think twice!

  11. Brilliant idea, but I hope the glue isn't inflammable ! Glue fumes? It could explode if you put it on the fire !

  12. I love the reindeer idea for a party..very cool. And, "normal" applied to you??!! I think not; that's why we're all here...your wonderfully hilarious account of your life...which is decidedly not normal...at least, not the Scotch egg obsession!! (said with love)

  13. Normal? I hope not. An overrated place to live.

  15. Nothing wrong with a P.J (under trousers) day. I could do with a P.J week. Love the deer x

  16. Is it an arrest-able offense? If so, I am fucked.

  17. Those deer are getting all over the place. There was someone selling them at our Christmas Fair a couple of weeks ago. They sold quite well.

  18. We had deer like that at a Christmas market near us in the northwest - tell the Affable Despot to get a move on if he's going to conquer the South before Christmas. They sell well 'cos they're endearing! boom boom!

  19. What a fun neighborhood,

  20. That reindeer is as much fun as my mother-in-law's Santa made from a bowling pin! What is "proper" underwear?
