    Cheers, mate. Same to you and yours

    Working on New Year's Day? What a nightmare. She has my sympathy... I doubt I'll surface until at least 11am!!

    I prefer relaxing in my own environment, with folk I like and can boot out when I get fed up with them! Anyway, have a good one Gaz, whatever you're doing

    Quality, dude. Sounds impressive! You should talk about it more on the car thread, and post some pics!

    Plus, isn't this the night that Anita has you on a 'promise'? Just the once, mind, and the other 364 days it's getting jiggy with 5-finger shuffles!

    Texting, is that how people bring in the new year these day s. Rather not bother. Anyway, happy new year to everybody.

    We're having a Hogmanay party at our place, with one of our neighbours coming round with his wife, and Del's invited some of her friends from work for drinkies and nibbles, so I'll serving Champagne and cocktails all night to a load of pissed young(ish) women!! So we'll see how that pans out...

    Then tomorrow I've got my dad and some other friends coming round for lunch, and Del's doing a lovely Christmas ham: https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/h...cherries_83650 and various other bits and pieces, including red wine-poached apples stuffed with blue cheese, for starters: https://catherinefulvio.com/recipes/...ue-cheese.html, and a fresh lemon posset for dessert, accompanied as usual by my expertly selected wines!

    Should be fun... Anyway, I won't be on here later, so would just like to take this opportunity to wish all AoS members, including all the mods, who do lots of invaluable work behind the scenes, entirely voluntary [thanks guys - it's always much appreciated] and their families a very Happy New Year and a healthy and prosperous 2020!!





    Enjoy!!

    Marco.
