When I was working my better half used to do all of Christmas apart from the cards - I just used to turn up and cook. Opening the presents was great (I'm ashamed to say) as I had no idea what half of the kids' presents were. Now I'm half way through making the cards, and still have to write them, after having had approval on to whom we are sending. I've been informed that I'm in charge of presents too!! HELP!!! One good thing, though, is that we have a son whose girlfriend loves putting up decorations! All that is needed is a Sunday lunch before Christmas! Think I can manage that. Just hope she can get up into the loft to get the tree out.....................................

we have a live tree outside back door i may tinsel, but other than that, no decs, we don't get any visitors, and the cats try to eat and attack anything that glints so no decs is safest all round

Having bought our new Triton 430 (Gretal) this year the wife and I will be sharing a pigeons leg on Christmas Day. If we don't suck the bones there should be enough left over for Boxing Day. To the chocs and shloer brigade.......cheers.

We've got a right disparate band for Christmas this year. There's the lodger (a friend of Mrs SDA's who is suffering with two brain tumours), daughter and her husband and 4 year old son, our son and his new fiancée who I've not met yet and a nephew from Vancouver who is trying to get work in London.
Mrs SDA says we have enough beds as long as son and young lady sleep in the van on the drive.

Am I alone in disliking the whole commercial spendathon that is the modern Christmas with all its imported 'traditions', customs and excesses?

Charles Dickens, Prince Albert and the Coca Cola Company have a lot to answer for and I hate to think of people at the bottom of our society getting into serious debt for the year in order to give their children what they perceive to be a 'proper' Christmas, all because of the cynical manipulation that is advertising.

Mrs Calder and I stopped buying each other Christmas presents years ago as it all seemed so stressful and pointless when we have a joint bank account and can go out and buy things that we want or need at any time during the year. And who needs an excuse for an orgy of feasting nowadays when our normal Sunday dinner exceeds what was on the table on Christmas Day when we were kids?

I'm always relieved when the jolly Yuletide advertising excesses are over and done with for another year so we can get back to the normality of summer holiday adverts and January sales.

Anyway, I've put the series one and two box sets of 'Game of Thrones' on my list. What have you asked Santa to bring you?

We received our first Christmas card through the post today. Always first to arrive, it's from the Eriba Owner's Club of GB.

They always send really nice home designed cards and this year is no exception.

We really like the illustrations each year and were tickled by this year's whimsical verse.

I'm sure they won't mind us sharing it with you.

Thank you and Merry Christmas EOC. http://eriba-owners-club.co.uk/

Once again this year, I've had requests for my Tequila Christmas Cake recipe so here goes: Please keep in your files as I am beginning to get tired of typing this up every year!

Tequila Christmas Cake
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
... 1 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1 cup brown sugar
Lemon juice
4 large eggs
Nuts
1 bottle tequila
2 cups dried fruit



Sample the tequila to check quality. (very important)

Take a large bowl; check the tequila again to be sure it is of the highest quality.

Repeat.

Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again.

At this point, it is best to make sure the tequila is still OK. Try another cup just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl and chuck iin the cup of dried fruit. Pick the fruit up off the floor. Mix on the turner.

If the fried druit getas stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver.

Sample the tequila to test for tonsisticity.

Next, sift 2 cups of salt, or something.

Check the tequila.

Now shift the lemon ice strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink.

Whatever you can find. Greash the oven.

Turn the cake tin 360 s and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner.

Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the tequila and wipe the counter with the cat.
