I have no other things of the day as I am dying with a tooth infection hence my absence yesterday – I currently look like the elephant man. I have not got out of my bed for 24 hours but I did read this book in one sitting. It has gone straight into my top 10 – I loved it.
Christmas Film/TV of the day: None I am travelling to London
Christmas tip of the day: If your little ones are having trouble understanding how Father Christmas gets in your house if you don’t have a chimney, watch The Santa Clause………
I am about to set off to London town for 2 days in the big smoke. This should be fantastic as I could go and see all the wonderful window displays in Harrods etc and go and see the lovely Christmas Tree in Trafalgar Square but alas I am going for work so the next 48 hours will be fighting for a seat on the Tube, trying to find an office I have not been to before, looking like a tourist glued to Google Maps. Of course, I cannot forget, rubbish water that makes my hair go weird and black snot – thanks London Transport!
I have decided to omit the Barry M dazzle dust as I want to arrive looking like a sophisticated northerner – Ha! as if! I will arrive hot and sweaty and grumpier than the most grumpiest thing, I don’t do well away from home when I can’t have a brew and cig at the same time and have to go outside at 2am in PJs, a crumpled face and bedhead to alleviate my requirement for tobacco. Bah humbug!
