hi all!
3:51 am
Atalante

hi haz :)
3:51 am
Haz1558

Hello, Ata!
3:52 am
Haz1558

Is Hobbit grumpy today?
3:52 am
Atalante

yes!
3:53 am
Haz1558

Such ingratitude. She's been fed within the last week? She's had a roof over her head?
3:54 am
Atalante

<- refresh
3:54 am
Haz1558

WHAT has she done now?
3:55 am
Atalante

tail still infected
3:55 am
Atalante

so now she gets of Cone of Shame
3:56 am
Haz1558

No wonder she's grumpy. You did warn her, didn't you?
3:56 am
Atalante

nope :)
3:57 am
Haz1558

Poor Hobbit. It looks like a particularly large cone of shame. Stil, you can decorate it for Christmas.
3:58 am
Haz1558

Tinsel and fairy lights and things.
3:58 am
Atalante

it's actually cut down from the standard size!
3:58 am
Haz1558

Maybe it's the angle of the shot.
3:59 am
Atalante

but I do like the idea of tinsel
4:00 am
Haz1558

I think it would take the bare look off it.
4:00 am
Atalante

we have tinsel
4:01 am
Atalante

oh poor fiona! bad easyjet
4:02 am
Haz1558

I know, it's all rather annoying.
4:03 am
Haz1558

It seems to be the knock-on effect from yesterday, the plane from Belfast to Edinburgh was cancelled, so they cancelled from Edinburgh to Belfast and basically said 'Nothing available until Boxing Day'
4:03 am
Atalante

couldn't she walk? hitch hike or something?
4:03 am
FMitch

Morning you two!
4:03 am
Atalante

dog sled?
4:04 am
Haz1558

I suppose the altervative would have been train and boat, but yesterday's trains were badly affected out of Glasgow Central and she might get even more stuck.
4:04 am
FMitch

Sorry to hear that Haz
4:05 am
Haz1558

Poor girl, she was beginning to work out whose Christmas dinner she could gatecrash, but hopefully Flybe will do the business tomorrow. They hadn't been expecting more snow through the night.
4:05 am
Haz1558

Thanks, FM. I can semi-understand those people on Airline who fume and fret and jump up and down.
4:06 am
Haz1558

But the sensible side takes control and starts booking different flights!
4:06 am
FMitch

Not sure I will get to Mums on Friday either
4:07 am
Haz1558

Oh no! Is the snow still that bad with you?
4:07 am
FMitch

It's the ice thats the problem now on top of snow that melted and then froze again.
4:08 am
FMitch

We are being philosophical about it.
4:08 am
Haz1558

There's certainly no thaw on the way here either. Main roads aren't so bad because of the traffic that breaks everything up, when country/side roads are involved, it's a different thing altogether.
4:08 am
Atalante

ditto here
4:09 am
Haz1558

So she's not in too big a flap? That's good, at least you don't have to risk life and limb to get there just to appease her.
4:11 am
FMitch

All well at the the freezer and the cupboards are well stocked, going to make some soup today.

We said we would have Christmas on what ever day the weather is decent and she understands it is just not worth it but am keeping my fingers crossed still tho.
4:12 am
Haz1558

That sounds sensible, just record the Queen's Speech and listen to it on whatever day you get together.
4:12 am
FMitch

lol Haz and lol at poor old Hobbit.
4:14 am
FMitch

Mum's gardener has been a godsend as he has been going round to make sure they are OK and has gritted and salted their paths etc.
4:14 am
diem

Hi is there lots of power cuts with you?
4:15 am
Haz1558

No power cuts that I've heard of, diem.
4:15 am
FMitch

Not where I am thankgoodness diem
4:15 am
Haz1558

That would be the icing on the cake.

There was in Essex I think, 3000 people w/o power for a day or so.

well thats a blessing at least

LOL BR and greetings
4:17 am
mom2han8

Morning all!
4:18 am
Haz1558

I'd rather have no cake and a daughter safely across the Irish sea. I think it's annoying me more because she had been looking forward to coming home so much and everything seems that bit more tentative.
4:18 am
Haz1558

Good morning, mom.
4:18 am
Andree

hi everyone
4:18 am

Hello, Andree.
4:18 am

morning all who just came on

Andree

haz how awful, your daughter won't get homein time for christmas?
4:19 am
mom2han8

Weather just stinks! Mostly because no amount of planning can change it!
4:19 am
FMitch

yes BR a rather untidy home but it is home :)
4:20 am
BabbleRabble

Hope everyone is safe
4:20 am
Haz1558

I've rebooked her onto another airline, Andree, hopefully to get across tomorrow. The one she was booked on cancelled her flight (and others) and basically said they'd get her home on 26 December.
4:20 am
Haz1558

They're working through a backlog caused by the weather.
4:20 am
BabbleRabble

Good luck, Haz
4:21 am
Haz1558

Thank you!
4:21 am
Haz1558

It's only costing about 5 times what I originally paid for her flight so I was joking that Christmas menus were to be revised in favour of beans on toast and a plastic pot of trifle.
4:22 am
Atalante

and christmas presents sold for cash
4:22 am
FMitch

well if you put a sprig of holly on the beans it would be more festive *grin*
4:22 am
Haz1558

Nobody's getting my presents!
4:23 am
Andree

as long as she gets there safely, better a day late than dead on time
4:23 am
Haz1558

Absolutely, Andree, it's probably just the worry and uncertainty about the weather that still makes me uneasy.
4:24 am
FMitch

thats the pricipal I am working on Andree
4:24 am
Haz1558

And I do fe4 sorry for the airport workers who'll be on the receiving end of a lot of abuse.
4:24 am
Andree

we have done christmas a day late a couple of times and it really doesn't matter, the turkey and pudding taste just as good on 26th
4:24 am
Atalante

was it NZ that had the traffic warning ad saying "better never than late?" so clever
4:25 am
Haz1558

But will baked beans and plastic trifle?
4:25 am
Haz1558

I like a local building firm's logo 'The excitement is building.'
4:26 am
Atalante

as long as they are M&S beans and trifle
4:26 am
Andree

I have just been to DIL's christmas party so its been a long day, hoping tomorrow[christmas eve] to close the office before 1pm
4:26 am

you wont be alone having X-mas on the 26th we are as well.Mrs D and sister in law both work on the 25th
4:27 am

i love baked beans, the single womans staple
4:27 am
FMitch

Oh just had a call from the removal people to confirm they are picking up the empty boxes this morning so Ihad better go and finish the las couple. Although I will believe it when I see them - imagine moving in this weather!

TTFN and good luck Haz!
4:28 am
Haz1558

I like baked beans as well, it would save all that basting of turkey etc.
4:28 am
Haz1558

All the best, FM, enjoy unpacking. Think of it as Christmas presents to yourself.

4:29 am
Haz1558

No, who was on?
4:30 am
Andree

i did a leg of pork for the family last night as my father in law[ex] was here and used a new method for the crackling, never before has it been so perfect
4:30 am
Atalante

some random unimportant celebs. David Gest, that Irish gardener bloke, and some AWFUL woman from Loose Women
4:30 am
Andree

no ata, never heard of that show
4:30 am
Andree

david gest is a creep
4:30 am
Atalante

she was excruciatingly awful, and then got drunk and lost her footing and her christmas pudding fell on the floor
4:30 am
Haz1558

Diarmud Gavin?
4:31 am
Atalante

yes! him!
4:31 am
Haz1558

Who was she? That could describe most of those women.
4:31 am
Atalante

Shelley - ? *looks it up*
4:31 am
Haz1558

Why would you do that on TV? Be excruciating and drop a pudding?
4:32 am
Atalante

Sherrie Hewson
4:32 am
Haz1558

Ah! I know who you mean. She regrets her lost youth, apparently.
4:32 am
Atalante

she was utterly appalling
4:32 am
Atalante

and had a phobia of walnuts
4:33 am
Haz1558

I read an article about her, blames most things on her ex-husband and her wrinkles.
4:33 am
Haz1558

A phobia of walnuts? The name, BabbleRabble?
4:34 am
Haz1558

And walnutophobia won't cut it.
4:35 am
Andree

wrinkles, i have lots, but why would they be to blame?
4:35 am
Andree

wrinkles, i have lots, but why would they be to blame?
4:35 am
Andree

oops
4:36 am

She just thinks that life would be better without them. Put your mirrors away, would be my advice, and find something more worthwhile to do.
4:36 am
Andree

ata why is hobbit wearing that thingy
4:36 am
Atalante

it was absolutely hilarious, but for utterly the wrong reasons
4:36 am
Atalante

to stop her itching at her tail
4:37 am
Haz1558

You don't think they could have been told to be awful, just for the cameras?
4:37 am
Andree

poor hobbit, whats wrong with her tail
4:37 am
Haz1558

Owner neglect.
4:38 am
Atalante

no, she was just ... something else
4:38 am
Atalante

she has an infection on the skin, poor babe
4:38 am

4:39 am
Atalante

she's now on *8* days of antibiotics!
4:40 am
Haz1558

I remember years ago when Clive James used to show pieces from Japanese game shows. We were amazed and horrified at the things people would do, plus we couldn't conceive why the Japanese would find it worth watching. Roll on 20 years and it's commonplace.

I know a great deal of TV is manipulation of the audience but those reality things are manipulation of participants and the audience to an unacceptable degree.
4:42 am

i just can't help but feel producers of these shows must think viewers
4:42 am

Hi Andree. We didn't get a TV till I960. I was 15 and the only reason we got one was cos my gran was very ill and living with us, and it was so she could watch it. I loved the pop music programmes!

5:45 am
lynxxx

so what are you doing JBV?
5:46 am
JBV

well I have to thank my family for giving me a non-stress Christmas, I'm not seeing my brother and sister's families until Jan. 2 - so PLENTY of time for shopping, that's one

and just in general try to focus on the positive and not get lost in gloom
5:47 am

I also read a lot - that's my main escape
5:48 am

Have you ever tried yoga JBV, one time I was having a particularly torrid time at work and did yoga for a while - what a difference!

i know there are workplaces that provide outlets for staff - workout rooms, yoga classes, etc. - we do not have anything set up for that, but we could

my office is next to the Phys Ed supervisor - she's a bundle of positive energy - she's always organizing rumba lessons, and such, maybe we'll start something

Fun! Unfortunately no young ones around this year. My family is so scattered that we usually celebrate (with a tree, decorations, etc) in summer, when travelling is easier and we can all enjoy the weather etc. A bit different but it works for us! And THAT is why I'm so relaxed...nothing to buy, or do, or clean, or fret about!

it's similar to christmas cake but steamed instead of baked, and more moist

8:01 am
flosey

oh, it's a very rich, heavy fruit cake - raisins, currants, cherries, nuts, and so on, I always made a dark, heavy cake but there's also a light one
8:01 am
movieman

From Wikipedia:

Christmas pudding is a steamed pudding, heavy with dried fruit and nuts, and usually made with suet. It is very dark in appearance - effectively black - as a result of the dark sugars and black treacle in most recipes, and its long cooking time. The mixture can be moistened with the juice of citrus fruits, brandy and other alcohol (some recipes call for dark beers such as mild, stout or porter)
8:01 am
Michnick

oops, since I've never celebrated Christmas, I didn't know for sure.
8:01 am
oodleberry

well it looks like you would just have to make sure that everything is melted and it is a golden brown colour
8:01 am
Michnick

Sounds good, I'd bet a small piece goes a long way.
8:01 am
saanichcat

Some of the original recipes (mine is Bude) produce puddings which last forever (just keep adding a dram of brandy) once a year. I've had ones 10 years old.
8:02 am
oodleberry

wow saan just like fruit cakes
8:02 am
Michnick

So it's actually like preserved fruit with cake? Like a Nesselrode Cake?
8:02 am

wow, can't imagine it lasting that long saanichcat! at least not when my family was around
8:02 am
hego

Oy, ten year old cake, already!! ;-)
8:02 am
oodleberry

but I prefer rum
8:03 am

if you do it right flosey it will last as long as there is alcohol in it

It's traditionally served with brandy butter

Isn't this where Crossy usually shows up?

8:05 am
Michnick

My dad used to tease us every night, whatever was for dessert (Usually applesauce or fresh fruit), he'd sigh and say, what, no nesselrode pie!? Once in 9th grade I skipped school and spent the whole day making it (Bought the preserved fruit ready made). He took one bite and said, Too Sweet. Nice dad, huh?
8:05 am
flosey

love them all, have also had a light lemon sauce (less rich)

right - no matter what the lesson was, we can always learn something from it
8:09 am
saanichcat

Depends on the pudding and your traditions. Might be nice with calvados?

I think it took until I had my own kids to realize, but I hope it wasn't too late.

I soaked my fruit in wine thinking it would be the same as 'brandy' in the fruit cake I made um... NOT it came out too sour. So I am drying the whole thing and going to add rum to it when it is all dried and the alcohol is out of it... hope it will be ok

8:12 am
rubyfoo

oodleberry: after you add all the alcohol, set it on fire (in a safe place) and then eat the burned shards. How bad can that be?
8:13 am

Oh just think if it were possible, how much fun it would be
12:19 pm

12:21 pm

We could all put on some fancy gowns...do our makeup (again, a la Jordan) ;D
12:21 pm
Vicuna

My Nightshade is very useful - At least, she is whenever you need someone to stare at the birds right outside the window and occasionaly pounce into the glass pane.
12:21 pm
caitlyn

DrG has a lot to be thanked for, we would never had met each other if it wasnt for Babble (sorry about my grammer Haz)
12:21 pm
Atalante

Haz -are dogs allowed on any of the ferries over to you?
12:22 pm
Haz1558

Probably, but you'd have to leave them in the car. They're not allowed on deck or anything.
12:22 pm
Atalante

that would be ok on the quick boats

2:10 pm
jmcnrick

2:13 pm

ooooh, good point jmc. does it let you note where you stored it?
2:14 pm
dcseain

it's sort of like MS Sharepoint, but you can share within or without your org, even share a single document in a wave to external client, while keeping most comments internal.
