    NICKI'S ESSENTIAL CHRISTMAS DONT FORGETERS!!!

    DEFROST THE TURKEY! although this should have already been started and dont forget to take the giblets out! lol ( how many times have i been carving and then found the dreaded bag!!)

    batteries ( you know someones gonna give little jonny a toy but forget the batteries! )

    dustbin bags (you always use more and they double as emergency contaception )

    toilet paper (someones bound to get the runs!)

    tin foil (for the turkey and wrapping up left overs you always make too much food!)

    plasters and sudocrem (for the inevitable burn that "interfering relative" gets upon trying to help with the cooking while under the influence of one too many sherrys!)

    imodium and airfreshner (for the next day ... you remember what brussel sprouts do to your guts yeah?)

    red bull (to keep you going and helps recover from hangover on boxing day!)

    sugar, tea bags, milk (for the endless cups of tea you will be making for boring relative)

    washing up liquid / dish washer tabs ( for the men folk ... make sure they know how to use them in advance!!! )

    kitchen towel (for all the spills and ..... to wipe up the inevitable dog or cat puddle .. dont we all forget to let them out in the rush!)

    cling film ( for wrapping food and if the mother inlaw gets too much! lol also once again emergancy contraception!)

    paracetamol or ibuprofen ( for the head aches the rows between family members will cause and hangovers of course)

    all round cough linctus and throaties ( some one always gets a poxy cough when the chemist is closed be forearmed!)

    cigs ( well in my case i always smoke twice as much an someone else always runs out and ponses off me so stock up!)

    bleach ( for cleaning the sink of sick! ya know someons gonna do it!)

    ear plugs (so you can smile away while aunt betty retells her WI gossip and also through the endless rounds of karaoke!)

    Kalms (for your sanity and if uncle Fred keeps letching over you in the kitchen slip one in his drink! LOL )

    this is all said in jest so dont take anything to seriously lol
    have a good christmas everyone and feel free to add your "dont forgeters" after all todays the last day!

    Sprouts!:-D



    yeah i love them !! just hate the mini explosions they cause in my tummy lol :oops:

    I hate pealing them and putting the cross on the bottom as it takes forever. They always come in a bag of what seems like a million. So I count them out, everybody gets 5 each as that's all Im preparing. The rest I leave in the fridge for a week then say I'm going to make sprout soup with them and the magically go missing when I'm out!

    Hasn't putting the cross on the bottom of sprouts now been proved, as a waste of time unless your spouts are the size of small cabbages?

    It's suppose to make your sprouts waterlogged and soggy.
