Lovely day here as well. Cold, crisp and sunny.

 

I have been busy cooking for Christmas, the longer life stuff is all done and yesterday I started making Pettit four and florentine’s.
 

18 beautifully formed florentines made and left to cool on the rack yesterday. 
 

By the end of the evening yesterday down to 9 (I had a couple)

 

Went out for a walk this morning (big mistake) came back - now down to 4

 

So this afternoon it’s ground hog day, back to making another batch of florentines!

 

 

I like your style Eglesbrech😊

Mind you, if The Boss was on a cruise, I'd book now, even if if we only went to Canvey Island.

 

Count me in! How about a (full electric) concert and his Broadway show in the theatre accompanied by some acoustic sets in the Crow's Nest.

Have to eat early before watching the full concert- they go on for over 3 hours (as you know!)

I watched his Broadway show on Netflix - excellent.

Roundhay Park in Leeds, 1985, first time I saw them play live. There was over 100,000 there and my friend and I got within 30 metres of the stage. The show went on for over 4 hours and the Boss said that they were only stopping because a council official had told them to (something to do with licensing).

Thanks for posting - I still get goose bumps every time I see it. 

The greatest live performer I've ever seen.

I guess it will just need to remain one of life's little mysteries. 🤣

Don't be too hard them Avril .Eating outdoors is healthy ,a bit like Skeggy but in the depths of winter .

Chances of dying from covid is reduced ,it's the pneumonia you have to worry about .:classic_unsure:

The good news is it should be mild on Christmas day with the odd risk of a passing shower .

Nowt to worry about so get stuck in to your soup and a nice red for starters ,before the main meal is brought out ... I mean     What Could Go Wrong ?   :classic_smile:

In normal times you’d be welcomed here with open arms but at the moment, best stay away!

I don't think that's very likely kalos. We're in tier 3, so only those  in our bubble can visit.😊

Just posted this in another thread, but it's worth posting twice

https://www.omnicalculator.com/health/vaccine-queue-uk?adobe_mc=TS%3D1608222800|MCAID%3D2D53F13405317E29-400001182004603A

At least 9.9 million people ahead of me in the queue,  and I'm not likely to get my first injection until early March, if all goes to plan !!!

ohforgoodnesssake Wowzz!  Confusing me (it’s easy). I responded in the other thread but then saw 👆that post and thought my reply was lost.

 

Here’s what I put in the other, together with my thanks

 

My results tie in with the “within 3 months” the GP mentioned last week.  That would be just marvellous.  Fingers crossed for us all

 

Did you see the news articles where people doing the injecting have found that there is another full dose of vaccine left in the vial after they have made up the five which are documented as there?  The regulators have confirmed that it is OK to use that sixth dose.  Hooray, six for the price of five and all those extra people getting their jabs quickly.

Nice to hear good news 💉

Do we get to jump the queue if we tell them we keep reading things and thinking we've read them before?🙃

I have the the same result between 9.9 and 12.3 million.
