Clientco pissup tonight, kids duties for the rest of the weekend - the Lindley brass band are doing carols in the pub on Saturday so that might find it's way onto the to-do list

Edit - TFA!

Mostly blog stuff, cooking, drinking, the usual.
Might do a trial run on the 3 bird roast. It's been a long time since I deboned a chuck. Need to work out what I'm putting in it.

Have guests next weekend so the missus wants the Christmas tree up from the cellar, the cars cleaned and I've a million other jobs on my list including a festive visit to Winchester tip.

I have however been promised that if I'm good I can go fishing on Sunday. Can't decide between Gosport or Hythe. Gosport the fishing is better but harder work. Hythe is closer but all I'm likely to catch are crabs with a flounder or two if I'm lucky.

Think we're going to go and buy a Christmas Tree. Hopefully decorate it too rather than leave it in the garage a week like last year.

We bought a rather nice tree and by the time we put it up, B&Q were selling off any tree for a pound (even the 12' fancy ones) very galling.

Today: telephone interview for a gig that will hopefully start in January (I hate telephone interviews), meeting with a bunch of strange folk this evening for drinks

Tomorrow: drive to Sussex, sit through a Christmas movie with my friend and her children, visit parents, go out for a family dinner

Sunday: fix parent's PC, wrap all the family presents I had delivered so I didn't have to bring them down with me, visit an ex colleague and drop off a surprise present for her son, return to the paradise that is London

Hit Washington DC for some Christmas shopping on Saturday and then spend the rest of the weekend visiting various hostelries. Sunday is apparently game day (NFL) so might continue to wind them up after the game last night.

nativity play done, Micro V was very good (of course I'm biased).

I just need to test it
