Christmas Cheer..

Posted by Exile on December 18, 2010

juletræ2010(2)Just because you’re on the dole doesn’t mean you have to give up on all the trimmings at Christmas. Realising that I don’t want to fork out over thirty quid for a Christmas tree, I decided to see what could be done with what I have.

Here’s the impressive result. I thought I did quite well.

Inspired by my own frugality, I’ve decided to drop the turkey this year too.
We’re going to have stuffed pigeon, if I can catch one in the town.
If not, then it’s gonna be a “road kill special roast” for Christmas dinner.

I’ve sorted out the presents too.
Looking round in the attic, I found stuff that we have long since forgotten that we own.
My wife is getting some very stylish retro shoes and a couple of books. I found some very nice wine glasses too, so she may be getting those as well.
I’m sure she’ll be pleased.

Merry Christmas, one and all.

    Try impregnating bread in alcohol and give it to the pigeons. That ought to get them drunk and easy to catch. It also adds to the final taste.DO NOT USE SINGLE MALTS , if you have any left that is.
    Happy christmas my friend.

    And a very merry christmas to you too.
    P.S. I have plenty of the good single malt left..!!
