One of good things about having Christmas today instead the cancelled one in December is that we don't have to hear all the crap crimble music.

Mrs M always saves  a Christmas pudding for our birthdays in mid-June. So, this is a bit premature.

A minor local Z-lister is "Mr Christmas", for whom every day is Christmas.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Park_(Mr._Christmas)

Predictably, he became a reet fat bastad (as they say up north) at one point and was given a dire warning by his GP to cut down on the size of his 365 annual turkey dinners.
And Darkness and Decay and the Coronavirus held illimitable dominion over all.

We have crackers and everything.  Couldn't find brandy butter or mince pies in the shops. The butter was simple to make but neither of us could be bottomed to make the pies.

No Christmas is complete without at least a couple of crap Crimble tunes, surely ?  It gives everyone something in common to moan about.

We decided to forego the joys of Xmas Pud, being too stuffed with other festive delicacies to contemplate anything more strenuous than snoozing for much of the pip emma.

I've just cooked the 12lb lump of pork that I got for Chrimbo. I'll now have to rummage in the freezer for pigs in blankets. All just cos we're entertaining one other person. There may be leftovers.
There's no vibrations, but wait.

What a fantastic weekend that was.  So good to have the family together after so long.
I am completely full of turkey and Christmas pud.
Still a lot to get through though. Ive spent this morning asset stripping the turkey. There's several days worth for the two of us.

Lessee... it's about 4° or 1/90 of the Earth's circumference & Daddy Xmas has 31 hours* to get all the way round... a bit under 21 minutes.
