Christmas?

Post by rufio89 » Sun Dec 19, 2010 10:08 am

Hello,

It's less than a week away, is everyone ready for Christmas?

It's my Dads birthday on Boxing Day and in an attempt to relieve some of the stress from my parents, I have volunteered to host Boxing Day dinner at my house. I have cooked it the last few years, but for some reason it's causing me a lot more stress having it here! So that's dinner for 8, oh dear!

But presents are all sorted, except for Mr. Rufio, but I know what I am getting and will be getting it when I get paid on Monday!

How is everyone else doing?

Does anyone have any exciting Christmas plans?

Just about ready I think - still need to wrap Mr Ragdoll's prezzies, but besides that I am done. I've got my parent's a laptop this year and they don't know anything about it so am looking forward to giving them that :)

Having a nightmare trying to think of my Dad a 60th birthday prezzie for 31st December though! :roll:

Christmas day we're spending with my parents, the days around Christmas day, Mr. R's family are up so we'll have to spend it with them!

I think I'm ready, apart from buying the chocolates, which I have to do at the last minute or I eat them all and have to go and buy them again (an event which happens frequently :oops: ).

I have no exciting plans, which I'm rather glad of. Let us know how your big dinner goes, Rufio.

Most of the presents I need to get are sorted, bar for the new guy I am seeing.

Christmas day we are eating out, Boxing day is our turkey all the trimmings day. Nothing special though.

Rufio, If I host boxing day I just do a nibbles and a salad spread. I find people are already tired of big dinners by boxing day.
So it's sausage rolls, prawn skewers, rice salad, cheese platter etc. Much easier to manage.

I am ready. I am one of those annoying people who shops for present in October. I was very late this year but done by early December. Everything got wrapped on Saturday and the last of the food shop was done yesterday. I went mad and bought it all at Marks and Spencer :o . It better be nice because it cost enough.

Hope you all have a fantastic one. Remember it is only one day so try not to over eat. Get drunk though (use diet mixers) :P

Snail I think as Christmas is supposed to be different than the rest of the year you shouldn't have Chocolate and Pee should therefore stay off the drink. :lol:
