With the bathroom scales accelerating faster than an F1 car, and with Christmas looming on the horizon, it was a case of turning a blind eye to Quality Street, Cadbury's biscuits, and similar temptations over the festive season for me.

So enjoy those left over 'flab producers' and think of poor old Bauble wasting away as he watches 'er indoors tucking in to the remains of the goodies. Still we have a spare turkey for dinner on Sunday, and that can only be good for me, surely?

If wandering around the paddock at the Pom or Spring Start your eye should catch sight of a tall, good looking, and particularly slim, yet distinguished elder gentleman. Please pass on my regards.

A somewhat belated Happy New Year to all.....for a variety of reasons I haven't been on here since Xmas, so had a fair bit of catching up to do.......and this thread has reminded me that throughout the entire Xmas period I failed to consume a single mince pie!

Wonder if Tescos have any left ? (at a discount for a poor pensioner, of course....)

Belated HNY to you as well, Richard. JS was full of hot cross buns yesterday, so probably too late for a mincer. I expect the confectionary dept was promoting cream eggs as well......

Just to upset you, Iain - Pack of 10 croissants at Auchan for 2 euros this week. What's more, half of them are pains au chocolat.

I half heard a TV forecast earlier.

I think the answer was yes, no or maybe and it might all depend on where you are on which day.

Perhaps.

Too early to be sure, apparently.

Unless you live somewhere where they are sure, or fairly sure.

I think Scotland was mentioned in that context.


Does any of that help?

So.... why have you suddenly changed the old spelling 'Quasson' to 'Quassont'?

And John- There's a lot of difference between buying one pastry in a hospital coffee shop / café and a pack of 10 in a supermarket..... Morrisons (other s/markets are available) sell excellent baked in store (proper butter) croissants for (from memory) 25p each. Being a skinflint I buy one in there and take it into a well known coffee shop to eat with my drink.

Weather- Thursday the wind is going round to North / NW and will bring possible snow to Scotland. BUT at same time there is wet stuff approaching the south coast from Atlantic, and this could turn to snow when it hits the cold air. It's nothing to do with what East Europe etc. have had....
