Waiting For Christmas 1 (Re-post)

This is a re-post of an old article and was prompted by the bloody freezing cold weather that I had to face this morning when I got out of my nice, warm bed .  The BBC news claimed it was our coldest Oct. 25th for a good few years and, they sent shivers up my spine by mentioning the word 'Christmas'! 

If you didn't read it first time round .... why not?

Isn't this a grand time of year?

Christmas trees, holly, mistletoe? Maybe even the chance of snow at Christmas!  The odd's for white one have risen since the news of colder weather coming from northern Europe.

Get your thermal knickers out ladies, 'cos you might just be having snowball fights and sledging trips after all ... while we 'chaps' stay in the warm watching all those winter sports.  Safe in the knowledge that it'll be other people hearing the 'chink, chink' of their spherical objects being frozen off.

Yes, it's (almost) here at last ... doesn't seem like ten minutes ago that we had the last one, does it?

Christmas ... a time of good will and cheer to all men and expensive prezzies to all women.

To all you men out there in 'The Bloggi-verse', how many of you have a pact with their other halves not to buy each other presents?

Let me tell you now, before it's too late ... such pacts are not meant to be adhered to!  If your 'significant other' say's to you "Let's not buy each other anything this year", it means 'surprise me'!

Not that you will be surprised at Christmas, because she will turn around and say "Oh! But I thought we'd agreed not to to the prezzy thing this year" and believe me, she willl feel no guilt ... and will prob'ly look stunning in her new earrings/dress/coat/shoes/necklace.

OK, there are instances where the whole thing works the other way around, but they are really few and far between.  So get yourselves to the shops as soon as possible, because if her Christmas is 'presentless'  your lunches and dinners will lose their flavour/be burnt/not appear and there will be a serious under performance in her other 'wifley' duties too!

I hope you heed this warning ... your quality of life could depend upon it.

Ask yourself;  
   Has she seen something in a shop window lately and said "That's nice!", has she ever said "Mrs So 'n So's
   got a new [insert whatever it was]"?

If any of those, or something similar, is true ... go shopping NOW!!!

To those who ignore this warning ... when your lunch is cold or you are having tuna sanwiches for the third day in a row, remember ...

I told you so!

P.S.  Saying to her "but we agreed ...." could, in the words of  Red Dwarf's Soup Dispenser Repair Technician (third class) Dave Lster, land you in deep smeg!
