Bring On The Baby Jesus

Virus' are bad bastards.
Mine has morphed from being hot, fevered and ache based
To explosive cough and snot based.
I'm also at the stage where pent up coughs force out nuclear speed farts at the same time.
Much to the chagrin of the Prof who shakes his head sadly when I let another one fly across the kitchen.
Hey ho.... not to be downhearted !

A few chores today, which is nice. Last minute Christmas card deliveries need to be done
I'm making parmesan biscuits this afternoon followed by the obligatory sherry trifle.
and we are going to Church later to hear the vicar utter those traditional  Christmas service words as the nativity scene is completed with the arrival of one last tiny figurine
" Mrs Davies .......bring on the baby Jesus!" 

Have a peaceful and happy Christmas Eve, wherever you are

  5. I don't know what I'd do without you, John. I knew there was something I meant to do - but what? Keyword "Parmesan" - not so much biscuits as sticks. Thanks. I'll put a yellow sticker on the fridge door in case I misplace this reminder among the cranberries.

    Wishing you and your flock a Merry Christmas. And may the sputum disperse.

    Special hug and hiss to Albert,
    U

  7. If Mrs Davies forgets the baby Jesus, Winnie will make a great substitute. Stick her on her back in the manger with a dummy in her mush. No one will ever know the difference.

  9. You too John. If it is the virus I have had for the past week what you have described is par for the course. I got prescribed antibacs because of long term auto immune disease OH gave me the virus - I seem to be faring better than him as he not on antibacs. Just be grateful that you do not get more than a fart!. Hope you and the Prof have a lovely Christmas - enjoy the Church Service very special in small villages at this time of the year and thank you for continuing to entertain us mere mortals during the rest of the year. You always manage to cheer me up. Seasons felicitations and all that stuff and enjoy. Pattypan xx

  15. Thanks John!!! I'm sitting waiting for everyone to wake up so that we can go grocery shopping, 7:30 am here in the US. While I wait I thought I'd catch up with the goings on in your neck of the woods. You mentioned sherry trifle. I just looked in the cupboard and there's an almost empty sherry bottle in there, not enough for a trifle! If it hadn't been fro your post we could well have got all the way to the trifle making stage before we discovered it. Now it's on the shopping list.

    Merry Christmas to you and the Prof (and the dogs and cat, sheep, chickens etc etc).

  21. I hope you haven't spoiled your nice new shiny kitchen with all that snot, coughs and farts! By the way, where does William now wipe his bottom in your new kitchen? I digress, hope you and the prof and all the animals have a lovely, happy Christmas. x

  27. Good to see your virus is progressing as expected. Eventually it will get tired of your companionship and move on to some other unsuspecting victim. Get well and have a Happy Christmas.

  33. I'll be baking pies today and then will watch George C. Scott in "A Christmas Carol" later this evening. Frank Finlay as Jacob Marley is deliciously scary. I've already watched my other perennial Christmas favorites, "Miracle on 34th St." and "The Bishop's Wife" with Cary Grant and Loretta Young. Both flicks were made in 1947, the year I was born. I only wish I hold up as well as they have.

    Have a happy Christmas, John, and feel better soon!

  38. It's 5am in Oz and the Magpie is singing in the gum tree outside our house. Time to get some baking done before the day gets too hot. Just popping in to wish you and yours a very happy & Merry Christmas. I hope you get well soon. Thank you for all the entertainment.

  42. Did I tell you my husbands sure fire recipe for getting well ?
    flu, cold, sore throat etc ... he would keep a bottle of good vodka in the freezer .. so when he felt sick, he would take a swig of ice cold vodka and go take a nap. He always woke up feeling better.
    lol .. seriously ..

  46. I once had an illness induced nuclear speed fart when only a few weeks into my relationship with my lovely BF. He clearly loved me enough to move past it and here we are in our new lives. I think the prof was great to just shake his head, my BF shudders at the thought, lol. Have a wonderful Christmas and thank you for so many laugh out loud moments on your blog. Forget writing a book, you should be on TV. Love you all.xxx

  49. Farting is an art we are all familiar with also. Merry Christmas to both of you and all the fur pursons also. Hugs from the top of a point of land heading into the ocean.

  50. Happy Christmas John, and don't forget those wise words for the over 50's 'Never waste an erection, or trust a fart'. Very best wishes, Cro x

  51. Happy Christmas to you and Chris, John. I won't be making the obligatory sherry trifle which we've had for more than four decades of Christmasses. Grant (my darling of 46 years) passed away at the end of November. xx

  52. Dear John and Prof and family, Merry Christmas to you all. Thanks for keeping this blog, letting us into your life, sharing stories of animals, people, culture, transitions, laughter, tears, absurdities, the whole kaleidoscope of life. You make my world brighter in many ways. When the Zombie apocalypse comes (if it hasn't already here in the US), I sure wish I could be in your group at least until you have to bury a cleaver into my noggin. XO
