I fancy a heroin habit would help beat away the darkness over winter. I would develop one myself, but I believe it's a bit moreish.
And expensive I hear as well as rather illegal...

Enjoy a Citroen instead :wink:

Boxing day is my favourite day of the year James. It marks the longest period until the next Christmas :-D

It's not been good for my hair recently Mike.. The bloody LHM weep at the pump on my V6 had me fairly tearing it out...

The Activa is a great stress reliever though...

Well that's Halloween dealt with. Simple, really. Close front door, keep porch light off, remove power supply from doorbell. :mrgreen:

Any dopey bugger still chancing it would have likely got a real spider in their face (about three spin their webs across the front steps every night). :rofl2:

I rework the power supply to the doorbell. 240V to the button. Talk about trick or treat; it does the trick!

My Halloween is well sorted. I'll be at my Friday Karate training for the most part...

Any early callers will be answered by me in my gi. That's should scare them off good and proper... :lol:

Our local tesco has its Xmas tree up already and I saw a private house with its tree and decorations up. BAH HUMBUG! At least a month too early.

We have had a lot of houses showing Christmas lights, but as there are a lot of Hindus in this area, and they are celebrating Diwali (The Festival of Lights), this is understandable, and not a cause for Bah Humbug!

Our local Waitrose has "Merry Christmas" shopping separators on the tills now...

Mind you, they've produced an excellent cooking magazine for Christmas with some great recepies in it. I'm really tempting toward a Rack of Lamb for Christmas dinner...

You could also go souvlaki, if lamb floats your boat.
