Some Early Christmas Presents.

Merry Christmas to you all.  

Not a lot to report from the smallholding.  The bulls are now bullocks and the fields are saturated.  Another gale last night.  We treated ourselves to some early Christmas presents to cheer us up from this very wet winter.  Locals tell me they have never known it so wet.   

I remember when I was about eight, asking my mother if my pet goldfish was wet?  She laughed.  I didn't.  How would a goldfish know what it was to be wet?


 The wife treated herself to an early Christmas present.  She bought herself (and us) a kettle that whistles and doesn't need electric.   

 I treated myself to a bottle of malt Scottish whisky.  I couldn't wait until Christmas day and we have had two drinks already.  Happy Christmas!

    1. Thanks Dave. I think Van Gaal did the right thing with that press conference. Good luck against Stoke.

    2. Hi Rachel. Yes LVG handled it well. The United manager's job is not an easy one and Stoke won't be easy hunting ground on Boxing day.

    1. Merry Christmas CT. The kettle's got a long whistle and it goes higher the more it boils.

    1. Thanks Sol. It was very quiet (didn't see a single car) but very peaceful.

  9. Whistling kettles are the best! We are using an electric kettle until I get round to cleaning our whistler. It might take a while. It was very gunged up!
    Wishing you and your family a happy Christmas, and hope the rain stops soon for you.
