The fragility of festive frivolity.

What was I thinking? ASDA, today, in asghanistan! TODAY! Sweaty smelly shouty kids running amok all over the place, old folks meandering around stopping at every tin of peas, hoodies being as obnoxious as they possibly could and shop assistants fed up to the back teeth with it all (the most busy aisle was obviously the alcohol one) and I thought Ashington was skint! Trollies and baskets filled to the gunnels with booze! You do all realise it’s open on Boxing Day don’t you.

 An early Christmas present for meself! It’s the second one that’s been posted out (Bugger knows where the first one is, but if it comes it will find itself in an auction). Anyway, Bob the stormtrooper had been modded to super stunt mode, so now I can walk around without me arm or leg dropping off. Just his helmet to pad out and it’s all sorted…….again. Forgive me for putting this pic on here, but I found it on the website for Maplins in Cramlington.  

 Tomorrow is my travelling day, lots of stops on my way down to Nottingham where I’m spending Christmas Day. Got the few presents I have acquired all rapped and put away, (nearly forgot me cake) but that’s now in a box too. Past Catterick to see some special girls then Leeds to drop stuff off, then where Robin Hood lives. Should be a fun day (as long as the nobs stay off the roads)
