At the parents for Christmas with the added benefit of being on call Christmas day night into Boxing Day and then on call nights on the 27th as well.

Im having the pleasure of being at work for what will probably turn out to be themajority of Christmas day. I just cant wait for the last job of the day which will probably be an over run ofmy 12 hour shift. 0630 - 1830ish.I use the ish very loosely then working Boxing night.


For these reasons we have moved Christmas with the whole family to the 22nd. So I have to cook!!!

Its pretty much the same in any of the uniformed services. No shift is ever the same finish timeas your supposed to be doing. It means the dog gets some really good dinners.

Well, we're having a quiet one at home, no rellies, maybe seeing friends at some point. The local pub is open for lunchtime drinkies on Christmas Day, so it'd be rude not to attend - uphill on the way there, downhill on the way back :)

I asked Santa for my Mokka for Christmas but seeing as that's not going to happen I've opted for world peace instead.

Once I have built my 8 yr old son's crimbo present, we'll head off to my mum's for the day, and then the remainder of the school holidays will probably be spent trying to keep him entertained despite his new presents lol

What are you building Dawdy?
Andy - with the way Mario Kart is weighted I tend to find it a lot harder to win, I've been hit with lightening bolt, two red shells, a green shell followed by a blue one meters from the line. Then when I've been pipped by a number of racers someone giant runs over me.

Lego rules! I was chuckling at the Lego Star Wars cartoon they've done the other day. I didn't think they did Halo though - is that Mega Bloxs?
I used to go Denmark a lot as a kid and we always used to go to Legoland there.

Andy if she's parking somewhere on the map then yeah if you weren't beating her then I'd be worried.

When I was much younger I used to make sure that only Lego was in the Lego box. Cheap stuff wasn't allowed anywhere near. Lol! There was one Technic model that my grandad and me spent Christmas Day building when i was like 7 then somehow it go knocked off and broken and we had to spend Boxing Day building it again - then my mum broke it again. I feel both old an have a desire to build Lego. I think the cost of Lego might bring me to my senses - £80+ for the Millennium Falcon.
Kirby that sounds pretty perfect. Best wishes to your youngest.

My niece loves building lego too, although was a bit overwhelmed when I brought all the old boxes of bricks down from the loft....... When we had a tower touching the ceiling she said you have too much lego uncle cheeky, put that stuff away n just play with mine! LOL

It's going to be a loud christmas with her...... as i've bought her an accoustic guitar WOOPSY!
