Heaven Knows I'm Chrismerable Now!

Well no not really - but I quite like singing that instead of the real version - better than singing all or one of the three versions of Hallelujah that has given me insomnia for the last three days. Finally the manflu, ladyflu and minimanflu has abated. I was very organised despite being on death's door. The tree was up on Dec 5th. See picture of tree - it is an alternative to the usual.

The cards were posted two weeks ago. It's just that I forgot accidently on purpose to get the parsnips as quite frankly they are the devil's food! So I apologise to my Christmas guests but there are lots of other vegetables to eat so don't worry. My signature tipple of tomorrow will be Prosecco with pomegranate - I shall have one for and toast each and everyone of you my glorious blogfriends. Lots of love and chin chin xx

PS: there is an absolutely brilliant piece of writing about Chrizzmarse here if you are at a loose end

PPS: I rather un-Christmasly but with huge satisfaction called a teenager a lumbering idiot in Primark today as she slumpered into my changing cubicle that was most obviously occupied - then I spent the next ten minutes silently giggling to myself. No - I will not be going to heaven but we knew that anyway.

I like parsnips but not potatoes as I can't get them down. This makes me very odd according to everybody at work.

Do you have to parboil parsnips?

Parsnips are gods own vegetable - roasted of course. Well roasted. Caramelly.
I called my 8yr old a dumb klutz today. She is still in a huff with me, but it was worth it.

Parsnips with carrots mashed with salt and plenty of black pepper.
I'm not going to heaven either.
I got the Christmas tree out of the forest, the best I could get and it was something like shot at and missed- dreadful but it went up and will be till after the new year, and I'd like to wish you and yours the very very best in 2009;-)
