11:15 pm: Sober on Boxing Day
And correct spelling, and typing too. And another comment made by someone else makes me wonder whether we will ever get a black Doctor Who, but that's not important now.

Anyway, after listening to the first two parts of "Christmas Carol" last night, we're listening to some more of the story tonight as I type this, though I'm not sure we shall get to the end of it tonight.

This morning, we started slowly, and set off for "Christmas Dinner 2: The Return of the Turkey" at Betty's place. After lunch, we attacked crosswords and similar before leaving. Once again, it was leftover stuff for evening-meal - ham sandwiches, Christmas pudding, mince pies and the like. I must say I didn't do much constructive today, but I did catch up listening to The Archers.

Viv is burning a scented candle which smells like burning wood but is in fact, apparently, ginger, spice and cookies. I said I don't like ginger, spice or cookies, and Viv said I was lying.

Actually the candle is gingerspice cookie flavoured, and really smells lovely (in my opinion). Ian likes cookies and spices... to be fair he isn't too keen on ginger!

And no one would share the curry I made out of leftover vegetables and scraps of turkey... but it was really very nice indeed!!!

Doesn't Ian like ginger crunch then? I never met anyone who didn't like that!

I'm certainly not keen on it. As for cookies, I may have been exaggerating a little. And Viv tells me that curry includes spice, so that might have been wrong too.

Which, of course, doesn't bother me at all.

In fact the common fare at cake shops is quite different here...no neenish tarts or lamingtons, no ginger crunch or rocky road...and no pavlovas at the supermarket - sigh!! But we do have jaffa cakes... the boys were given three yards of jaffa cakes for Christmas!!!! But they don't have any lollies called jaffas here, in fact they don't know what I mean when I say lollies here!!!

Oh imagine no Neenish tarts or ginger crunch ... no lamingtons??! Wow! Saf! And how come they don't even have pavs at the supermarket? Is it really just not even part of what they eat over there at all?

Do they say 'sweets' there?

I think it sounds rather nice... you don't like cookies? *g* we have had vanilla candles burning nearly all day!
