James - I think I love you. I'm a bit older than late 20s....

Happy Christmas.


(PS - I'm from Essex too....)

TLMJJ - always a pleasure to spread a little Christmas joy!

I'm not an Essex boy though - I only moved there this year - but I'm hoping with a little bit of practised Burberry wearing I might become an honorary one!

Aah TLMJJ - I geddit...

With it being so quiet at work last week, I took to reading some old posts on the forum - looks like I missed out on thinking you were a middle-aged man!

No wonder you love me!

isn't it great ??

I went a few years ago... still the best N Y party I've ever been to !

I had tickets for a bash in Stirling castle this Hogmanay. You can imagine how gutted I was to discover that the event was to be held outside (there was an inch of snow, and icy wind and the heavens opened that night!) hosted by Big Brother contestants and music by Deacon Blue and a local covers band. Not the traditional event we had been led to believe.

I couldn't do it so instead stayed in with my partner and family and emptied the fridge in the shed (the one that holds the booze) and still had a wonderful night watching the London fireworks on the TV. Oh the irony of it all!

I'm afraid I've been bargain-hunting for cheap breaks again - and have booked 2 nights/3 days in Edinburgh mid. February. Never been to that city before...

I got 5 euro flights from Dublin - Edinburgh - for 4 of us it will come to 178 euros return, incl. taxes etc. But the really scandalous bit is that I booked 2 nights at Edinburgh Central Travelodge (family en-suite room) for 5 pounds sterling per night - total 10 pounds (our p.c. no longer produces pound symbols, apologies)...

I could have got Docklands Travelodge for same price - but we'd already booked the flight to Edinburgh for the half-term break...

this has got to be the best bargain I've got so far... (apart from all the reduced to clear groceries in Tescos late in the evenings, - and they're not even discounted by 80%...

aparently everything in the city center was cancelled due to high winds... think you did well staying in.
