Ho ho ho


I couldn't do the cake yesterday, because Waitrose had run out of icing sugar. They must have reduced it by 1p and caused a stampede.

I had a very good meeting/s this morning, and now I can see at least halfway into 2017, fiscally speaking. It was almost worth getting up at 6 this morning to attend it.

I wish I had seen this photo of H.I. from behind sooner, then I could have arranged to make a few quid out of her by giving her some similar facial hair and setting her up in one of the department stores as Santa. I'm not sure she would have lasted very long in the job, so it's probably just as well.

  1. Don't try to embiggen it - the skinflint who took it was saving on pixels.

  2. I did embiggen it before going to the comment section, and read your comment :) Please tell H.I she has lovely hair and a beautiful colour!

    1. I probably won't - she hates having her photo taken, let alone showing it.

  3. I agree with Maria about H.I. having lovely hair.

    Congrats to you on the successful meeting/s. Good news is so welcome.

    Maybe sugar will soon be restocked. Has to be top priority around this time of year.

    I think I will be finishing my minimal Christmas baking this morning, and although I have enjoyed the past week's time with the oven, it's going to be swell to just relax a bit.

    1. I now have to admit that I was looking in the wrong area. For some reason, Waitrose splits up the displays about 15 feet apart.

    1. All it means is that I will be able to eat for a few months more, which is what I call being able to see into the future.

    1. How much? For the right price I could shave it off and send it to you, Weave.

    1. That sort of news is always good just before Christmas. It takes some of the dread out of the long Winter days.
