Me too! I would recommend :)

I have no idea, I've slept a bit then woke back up about 2, lay there a while thinking come on just go back to sleep!! but realised wasn't happening so here I am :P

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 04:24 AM

True Lana!

Katy I hope you manage to get back to sleep!

Argh. I have to wake up in time to wrap presents and pack and then go to work. Oh dear.

Buttons. 25-12-2016 04:40 AM

Ha ha I hate wrapping so have cheated and bought some Christmassey bags instead :P

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 10:58 AM

That is a much better idea :P

Happy Christmas guys! I hope you all have a lovely day xxx

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 11:06 AM

Haha! I did NOT get laid. And when Lana pointed that out it just made the embarrassment and awkwardness even stronger!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!
Bucks fizz, prosecco and smoked salmon and scrambled eggs to start the day!
I actually had a bacon and egg sandwich. Nom!
All the presents have been opened. And Jasmine insisted on putting some cake and a carrot out for Santa and Rudolph last night. It was cute!

I hope you all have a good day. I'll probably be lurking around most of today!

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 11:09 AM

That sounds good Beckie!! Aww bless. Did Jasmine like her presents? Did you get anything nice?

I have to go into work early because someone is "ill". FFS. I am so unimpressed!

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 11:13 AM

Jasmine loved her presents!
I got a couple of nice things. Electric toothbrush which I asked for and some nice creams and stuff :)

Oh no that's awful! :(
How convenient to be ill on Christmas Day..... *is suspicious*

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 12:02 PM


Well, I guess that's just Lana for you! :P

Sketchy 25-12-2016 01:00 PM

Merry Christmas everyone.

Becky I hope little jasmine is enjoying herself and happy with what Santa brought her. I hope you are enjoying yourself too.

Hannah, that sucks about work, but I hope you have a good day.

Lana, I hope you are enjoying your Christmas.

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 01:20 PM

Merry Christmas Lorraine! :)

Jasmine is really enjoying herself! Lots of new things to play with and has set the table for lunch (which won't be ready for a couple of hours yet!)
We're watching Harry Potter now :-D

How's your Christmas going Lorraine?

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 01:28 PM

Yay for nice presents! I'm glad Jasmine is enjoying herself Beckie!

How are you Lorraine and Lana?

Yeah she's definitely not really ill! Grr.

Sketchy 25-12-2016 01:34 PM

I'm ok thanks. Bit fed up. My sister is sleeping off a night shift and my dad is on the phone, so I'm a bit bored. When my sister gets up it will be better.

How are you?

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 01:39 PM

Oh that doesn't sound very fun Lorraine. I hope your sister doesn't need too much sleep!

I'm just super grumpy!

Sketchy 25-12-2016 01:41 PM

It's understandable you being grumpy. I'd be grumpy too. I hope you manage to get some time to enjoy the holidays.

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 01:43 PM

Yes you have every right to be grumpy Hannah! I would be too.

Hopefully your sister gets up soon Lorraine!

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 01:46 PM

Thanks, I have two days off after this and there's no way I'm covering any more shifts so that will be nice :)

Sketchy 25-12-2016 01:48 PM

I hope so, but she only got home from work at 8am. She stayed up to open presents and for breakfast. Wait, I can hear her getting up.

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 02:11 PM

That will be nice Hannah! Hope you manage to do something nice for yourself on your days off!

Have a good time with your sister Lorraine!

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 02:14 PM

I'm going to see my parents. And the dog! :)

Sketchy 25-12-2016 02:20 PM

That will be nice Hannah.

I'm already having a gin and tonic.

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 02:38 PM

Sounds nice Hannah!

Gin and tonic sounds good! Ive never actually tried it!
I've got some white wine.
One of my brothers and my step dad have been drinking since this morning! Champagne breakfast and then things just went from there!

Sketchy 25-12-2016 02:42 PM

It's nice to have a cheeky wee drink on xmas.
We'll be having wine later with our dinner.

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 03:01 PM

How have you never tried gin and tonic Beckie?! It is nice.

I'll be drinking when I get home!

Sketchy 25-12-2016 03:03 PM

I hope you have something yummy Hannah.

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 03:18 PM

Definitely is Lorraine!

I'm not sure Hannah! Gin and tonic has never really appealed to me! But I'll have to try it at some point.

Christmas lunch is going to be ready soon! Jasmine has set the table. So looking forward to it!

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 03:22 PM

I will Lorraine!

Enjoy your lunch Beckie! :)

Sketchy 25-12-2016 03:23 PM

I think gin is refreshing but probably takes getting used to.

I hope you enjoy your Christmas lunch Beckie. We're having ours at around 4.30.
Hannah did you bring anything yummy in to eat in work?

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 03:30 PM

I will Lorraine!

Enjoy your lunch Beckie! :)

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 05:57 PM

Had our lunch. I am soooo full!
Don't know what we're doing now. Probably a game or film or something.
How's everyone else doing?

Buttons. 25-12-2016 06:08 PM

Sounds good Beckie :)

I got a lovely present off my mum a cushion which has a picture of my dog on it-chuffed :)

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 06:24 PM

Did you enjoy your lunch Beckie?!

Oh that's really lovely Katy!

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 06:25 PM

I did thanks Hannah!

Awww that sounds brilliant Katy!!

We're just having some birthday cake (brothers birthday) and watching the lion king! Haven't actually seen this in years!

Serendipity. 25-12-2016 06:30 PM

The lion king is awesome! :D You should be watching miracle on 34th street though Beckie! :P

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 06:56 PM

Haha! I didn't bring my laptop unfortunately! I'm gonna watch it when I get home!
But Doctor Who is on now!! Yaaay!!!

Sketchy 25-12-2016 07:57 PM

I'm so sleepy from wine and food.

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 08:01 PM

Me too Lorraine!

Jasmine is very tired and grumpy! We're going to play a game when she's gone to bed.

Sketchy 25-12-2016 08:43 PM

Sounds like a good plan. We've already played monopoly. I won.

Cacoethes 25-12-2016 09:26 PM

Yay for winning!! :-D
We're starting a game of monopoly now!
We were playing something else but it was a bit like Snap and got rather aggressive! Especially my little sister!
Having fun though!
Having some baileys too

Sketchy 25-12-2016 10:21 PM

I love baileys. Enjoy it and good luck in monopoly.
We're watching doctor who that we missed earlier.

not_so_insig 26-12-2016 12:50 AM

We shall be playing monopoly over Christmas.

I got a joke in my cracker about cutting oneself. I laughed at the irony. Of all the people who had that joke it had to be the SIer.

Serendipity. 26-12-2016 04:24 AM

Lol Dawn. I want to know what the joke was now! :P

My parents and I are doing our Christmas dinner tomorrow! Tonight it was pizza again! I felt like such a rebel eating anything other than Christmas dinner on Christmas day :P

not_so_insig 26-12-2016 04:43 AM

Ok here goes the joke was
The following content has been hidden - Reason : Just in case people are triggered
Why did the onion cry?

Because he had cut himself.

Serendipity. 26-12-2016 04:47 AM

Owh that is terrible! But amusing that you were the one to get it :P

Reminds me of that joke that was going round years ago that everyone got all twisted up over

The following content has been hidden - Reason : triggerz!
I wish my grass was emo so it would cut itself.

I thought it was vaguely amusing but I remember lots of people being super offended!

Buttons. 26-12-2016 05:46 AM

Ha ha gotta love awful jokes :P We actually forgot to put our crackers out yesterday at lunch but Mum and I are thinking of trying to arrange a meal around New years eve and having them then. Can't have a Christmas without crackers!!!!!

Serendipity. 26-12-2016 12:52 PM

Haha, how could you forget the crackers?! :P We're having ours today! I love them! One year we had really posh ones with actual nice gifts inside them, that was pretty cool.

Buttons. 26-12-2016 12:59 PM

^ That sounds awesome!!

And we managed to forget the crackers because we are all (in different ways) as dozy as each other :P I'm surprised we all ended up at the right location :P

Cacoethes 26-12-2016 01:11 PM

Hey everyone!!

I always find jokes like that amusing! It takes a great deal to offend me tbh!

How could you forget crackers Katy?!?!?
Ours were crap this year even though they were from waitrose. Although the fortune telling fish was quite fun!

What are everyone's plans for today?
I'm really hoping my brother will decide to go home today so I can get a lift back! He might still decide to go tomorrow though. Got to wait for the rest of the family to get home to discuss it. My brothers don't know where they have gone and they've been gone for hours!!

Buttons. 26-12-2016 01:13 PM

Because I'm special :P

Ooh I always love the fortune telling fish!

I am trying not to lose the plot entirely today, that's about it and I don't see that going brilliantly anyway, how about you lovely?

Cacoethes 26-12-2016 01:35 PM

Yes, the fortune telling fish told me I was in love.....which I am not! So not great at fortune telling really :p

Oh no! Have you got things going on today? Maybe you could take a bit of a break?

I'm ok. Just really want to go home!

Buttons. 26-12-2016 01:42 PM

Yeah fun but wouldn't put money on the fish's findings :P

My stuff is probably not appropriate for this thread but anyhoo I'll survive I always do :P

Hope you manage to get home soon, nothing like relaxing in your own space :)
