Anyone else feel like hibernating through Christmas?

  1. I'm sorry. I will pass the cheddar next time and make an attempt to smile. But I am still having fruit with my stilton.

    What about fruit with your wensleydale? That always struck me as a particularly odd epicurean choice, regardless of season...

    I'm reliably informed by Yorkshire lass Mrs MSB that in her part of the world a sign of social acceptance is to be offered fruit cake with your Wensleydale, especially by one's potential in-laws.

    If your OH is from Yorkshire and you've not been offered the above by the extended family after a decent interval I'd advise ending the relationship - it's clearly going nowhere ;-)
  4. Get foo. That's my advice.
    And I will be taking my own advice as soon as humanly possible after work tomorrow... [​IMG]

    The last person I wanted to kill at Tesco was a mannerless twenty-something pillockess conducting a loud ***-fest on her mobile phone while the rest of us were scuttling around as usual just trying to be polite on the run up to having a friendly word with the check-out person.
    Think of your blood pressure, airy.

    I do know what you mean, though. It was a woman with a buggy for me yesterday. She had zero spatial awareness and it was irritating.

    and some of the buggies appear to be an aisle wide, bit like a snow plough, but to clear shoppers out the way
