  4. From my daughter…


    Only one slight problem, I don't own a dog, let alone a Whippet
  5. Any Yorkshire ancestry?

    For me it was a bunch of books I have nowhere to put. A Great big Spanish ham, some salmon that went straight in the freezer and something from my wife that I'm buggered if I can remember what.

    I got man-flu, some decent aftershave, a step-daughter who chattered endlessly and hogged the remote, sleep on the sofa as Mum doubled up with said daughter (the spare bedroom's still got the freezer and kit in it so I had to do with the sofa) and full access to the booze for medicinal purposes... oh, and a "speshul" Christmas show of affection...

    I got proper flu on Xmas Day. Woke up feeling 100%. In the afternoon I started feeling a little stuffy / nose a little runny. By tea time I was full-on joint achey, head about to explode, dizzy as fuck. It was great.

    On the plus-side I got Halo 4 from the other half (plus the usual toiletries and gizmos) which I eventually got around to playing last Sunday and completed in 8½ hours.

    Next stop - Normal, Heroic, Legendary :)
