When's Santa Coming Mummy?

It's all getting a bit exciting, colleagues at work are feeling dizzy with undisguised anticipation and muted but obvious excitement of the magic of the weekend to come. The snow is still hanging around and it might get worse with rain and minus 4 degrees forecast for tonight - interesting combination!

I've picked up the turkey crown from my mother's today with some streaky bacon which will sit over the top of it while it's cooking away (don't you love the smell of Christmas Day cooking wafting through the house?) Eighteen home made mince pies are nicely stashed away because if they weren't, they'd be eaten NOW. All the veg is in and there's nothing to do but relax and wait.

There were some great quotes today listed on the BBC Sport on-line from our famous sports personalities from years past - superb athletes, managers and great people, but often not the brightest tools in the box.

The brilliant and late Sir Bobby Robson once said when asked what his dream job would have been outside football, "I'd give my right arm to be a pianist." Good man.

When Geoffrey Boycott was taken on to coach young Pakistani batsmen, legend Ian Botham dryly commented that, "This can only help England's cause."

Football pundit Gary Linneker asked Scot Gordon Strachan
this searching philosophical question, "So Gordon, if you were English, what formation would you play?"
Strachan replied, "If I was English I'd top myself." Bet you didn't see that one coming Gary.

Keep calm, try not to get too excited.

Chat soon
