I loved Dinnerlaides and also the Vicar of Dibley.
Which comedian fails to raise a smile?
In the days when I had a TV I would switch off Reginald D Hunter.
Jools Holland and fireworks, or early to bed on Saturday?
I can't stand that Jules Holland Hogmany (G od knows how you spell it) stuff. I may be asleep. I'll be celebrating on Jan1st. Love that day! Even got married on it, although am no longer living in wedded bliss
Hooray for January 1st when IT'S ALL OVER
A memorable New Year's Eve for me, in my own former wedded bliss(?), was driving to London and climbing Primrose Hill to see the Embankment fireworks from afar. There was a great buzz in the crowd, lots of good natured merriment. I'd like to do that again some time but not this year. I shall probably go to a neighbour's for a drink but likewise would prefer it all to be over.
What's the temperature outside?
About 4 degrees C. Was foggy this morning, could hear the foghorn as I lay in bed. The curse of double glazing is you can't hear it always and it's a surprise when you open the curtains. My SIL has lived inland for the best part of twenty years and still misses it.
A mere 3 here. The thawing fog is starting to drip off the trees.
Do you put out food for the birds in winter?
No but my neighbours each side do so there's always birds everywhere which is fab.
I love this fog everywhere.
How many drinks of what and when do you have most days? Choose a day in the school hols.
I have around 8 mugs of tea with maybe one coffee thrown.
How do you celebrate birthdays in your family?
Depends who it is. I desperately try not to celebrate mine until one minute after midnight when it's done with for another 364 days. Phewwwwww.
How are you feeling now it's all over with at long last?
I always breathe a little sigh of relief once Christmas/New year is over.I don't dislike the festivities, but a part of me is glad to see the back of it.
Have you made any New year resolutions?
No. I just love January.
I have resolved to moisturise my feet/legs after my daily shower.
What are you having for tea tonight? If money/calories/cooking skills etc were no object, would you still eat the same meal or summat different?
Chicken and Asparagus stirfry if I get home early enough to make it. Reheated pasta sauce if I don't.
Why do you post?
Dunno. Summat to do while Mr Lardy watches Star Trek and other rubbish.
What is your blood type?
Rhesus positive of rhesus negative ... can't quite remember which.
How many of your ancestors can you name? (478 here, excluding all the ones who I have only tentatively identified ... )
My parents and grandparents, and that's about it!
What genre of fiction do you read most often?
I don't really know what genre they are. Would they be called 'wishy, washy, soppy kind of full of meaningless/meaningful very Gelly thought provoking family type of stuff where they fall out all the time' genre?
Or 'phycho drama family sagas where husband murders the wife and buries her in a tomb in the back garden then marries another woman who ends up in an asylum where she rapes the male warder and gets pregnant and gives birth to a bloke who goes on to become Prime Minister' genre.
British crime fiction, but nothing too graphic or upsetting.
What was your childhood ambition?
To build a sea-resistant sand castle.
What was yours?
To marry Donny Osmond.
What are your plans for your retirement?
