The Garth

We went for a walk up a local hill with Jack. It was about 2C, but Jack was quite happy in his Buffalo suit.


Sorry I didn’t post yesterday (Lee and Ele). As usual I had too much booze and food and couldn’t be arsed.
Christmas Day was a little bizarre this year. Kim, Jack and I had all recovered from our colds, although Jack is still a little under the weather. But in Cheltenham everybody was sick. Weird. During the Christmas dinner everybody was coughing, and nobody had much of an apetite. Today people are worse, puking and stuck in bed. Dad and Nick are OK though. I hope it’s the same virus we had, because I don’t fancy looking after Kim and Jack for the second week of my holiday too 🙁
Otherwise it was a very fun day. Jack was so spoilt by presents that he hasn’t opened them all yet. I forgot to bring the cable for my camera so I can’t post any pics until I get back to Cardiff, but believe me that he was a very happy boy. Food and drink were plentiful, there was F all on TV as usual, but I got a sackful of DVDs so we were saved by Indiana Jones. Whiskey and word games finished the day off with fits of giggles. Mild headache this morning.
I hope Lee and Ele had a good Christmas in Sydney. It was strange not having you around, and we missed you. Dad didn’t bother buying any Baileys because you weren’t here. I’ve got a photo for your rucksacks round here somewhere. I’ll post it for you to print out when I find it.

iPod in Tescos

I had to go to Tesco’s yesterday to get the usual Christmassy crap plus nappies and food for Jack. I hate Tescos, unless it’s quet. I waited until as late as possible (about 9.30pm) before I went down. It was packed. Luckily with my iPod I was able to blank out the awful Christmas muzak and it got me round the store. Nobody seemed that pissed off, which is unusual for a busy supermarket.
I picked up some beer, and got in the checkout queue at about 10.55pm. I didn’t get served until 11.30pm, so I couldn’t buy the beer (licensing laws). Great. I also didn’t get the (Tesco’s chinese) takeaway for my tea because they didn’t have any. And I didn’t get home until almost midnight. Ugh.
Thank God for iPod.
