CDs are on the go. Christmas compilation and some top festive Andy Williams crooning - "Do you hear what I hear?" Yes Andy, I've got the volume full up! Chris Rea's looking at the driver next to him. And no Chris, he's not 'just the same'. Unless by coincidence the driver next to you is a multi-millionaire gravelly voiced Geordie musician.

Juniorkiller's beating the eggs, butter and sugar. Mrs Killer's giving instructions and generally overseeing the whole operation but getting totally frustrated with the realisation that no one's listening to her. Junior's playing air guitar and generally asking around, and DK's not exactly discouraging her and is scoffing shed loads of glacé cherries. 

I suspect the cake mixture's gone magnificently awry because this cake appears to be 97% fruit - like Kylie asking me to hurry down her chimney tonight. Anyway, it's in the oven now. Roy and Noddy are banging out their chunes and I'm getting a warm glow from the sneaky Jackie D I've just poured down me. "When you land upon your head then you've been Slade" - still the best festive lyric of all time.

Yes it's the international break, and I'm as bored as the next man. But this little slice of 1950s style homeliness in 2017 is brought to you to remind you that everything doesn't have to be grim and nasty, doom and gloom. So stop your petty sniping (actually don't, it's a pisser), make the most of what you've got, save the lynx, and always remember to scoop-up and eat whatever's left of your cake mix - the bit your mum always used to save for you. It's the best bit.

Let me be the first to wish you, one and all, a very Merry Christmas.

I hate you.

Just read the whole lot of that. I can hear 'Yes darling','thank you darling'... Fucking nauseating.

Nah, just in a good mood and felt like spreading a little joy. You're a million miles off, but obviously my judgement was a bit askew as well. Wrong audience at the wrong time. 

Soz!  Big Grin

No apology needed. I've had a fantastic day also. 

Did the cakes work out - we need to know!

Just one cake. Smells top notch, but won't get to taste it for a few weeks. Got to add the whisky and decorate it yet. Having a bit of a laugh while we made it was more important to be honest.

I once baked a cake that no one could taste for weeks....the sods caught legionaires disease after doing so.

My lawyers are fighting my case as we speak.

Big Grin   - They haven't got a leg to stand on

Tongue   - I know what went in the mix

Rolleyes   - Like I'd ever do that

Angel - Seriously, it was chocolate

Blush   - Well, maybe just a little bit

Dodgy   - That didn't go as expected

Undecided   - No, I'm not picking the soap up for you

Heart   - You'll keep me warm won't you

Sorry DK you're a good sort but accepting Christmas as starting before December is just wrong.

I was quite happy to let the darn thread fall off the front page, then you two keep it bumped up to the top to let me know it's too soon. 

Played lads!  Big Grin

Honestly, it was just intended as a bit of fun. Sorry it struck such a bum note.
