My sister has run out of suet for making Christmas grub and I've got to find a quick way of sending some to Italy.

Tell he to go out and grate a cow!

I have heard, and used, the word "coolth" but only expected it to exist in the same lexicon as "molish".

My smartphone, that sits about 3 feet away, tells me I have mail. Should I a) switch off the phone or b) check my inbox. What a dilemma. Oh, and my XL onesies that arrived today are nothing but XL and I have to return them.

Slightly OT, I just watched Dubya get booed, so all is not totally unwell.

My delivery of Spiced Abyss hot chocolate arrived, but 2 of the containers had popped in transit.

I now smell of chocolate, vanilla, cardomon & chilli and have brown stains all over me.

I have Danish Blue in the fridge, but far prefer Stilton or St Agur; so I'll just have to leave off the port for a bit.   :-\

The booze fridge is full so I've had to start stashing stuff in the garage. That means I have to go OUTSIDE to get it.

I've got a BOGOF:

1. Schweppes and Sainsbury's - thanks to your respectively very similar livery and inattention, I am in possession of 3 bottles of slim line tonic. I think I'd rather drink the devil's piss.

2. Stupid fridge. I was going to make a great fishy dinner for tea, but you appear to have par-frozen the fish and made ice-cream out of the cream for the sauce.
Better sort yourself out cos if I have to go fridge freezer shopping in the new year it'll be the frying pan of spang for you.

Have to travel to South Africa in the New Year to visit a client. Requested BA Premium Economy. Unfortunately that violated the client's (who's picking up the tab) travel policy so I have to go Virgin Upper Class instead.
