sunday - not (just) to piss off xians but because there is little or no public transport, making it more difificult to do things.











If we moved to a four day week and three day weekend, which week day would you add to the weekend and why?

I don't think it would matter much..But Friday night is always a party night... Let's make Monday a day off because everybody hates Mondays. Poor Monday gets a bad rap! :grin:

Probably some kind of ornament - I hate the things..... and grannies seem to be determined to get you 'into' them!

Probably, to speak my mind like my dad always did, though I don't know if I was taught it, or it's just inherent.

All of it, some parts loads of times (debating fundies is my hobby) and very few of them have read it, it kinda gives you an edge. :grin:

My favourite Sundays involve a country walk or cycle with friends in the morning, followed by a pub lunch, more walking or cycling followed by a visit to a tea shop for cream tea, then home to lounge around and read the papers.

Avoiding Moonbeam's amnesia, my fave Sunday is listening to favourite records,pop and class, with a couple of friends with similar tastes n music and a couple (more than is medically endorsed) bottles of wine.

Stockings for everyone (4 children now 19 - 28, + 2 grandmas in 80s), followed by croissants, coffee, orange juice for the abstemious, full fry up for others.

Intensive kitchen work: then me + my 2 children (no one else interested or able) walk to top of nearest hill (Robinswood)+ dog + bottle of champagne, which we drink looking down on Gloucester. Then huge blow out meal, usually goose and only after this is it presents (usually round 6 pm). Board games, TV, left-over sandwiches.

This is the ideal. I think it actually happened like this once, but since the children have had rows (stepchildren rarely agree), and now want to stay with boy/girlfriends, other parents etc it's usually a very changable line-up.
But I always try to go up the hill, and to have the presents late (makes the day terrifically over-exciting!)

I like to open really nice presents that are just what I always wanted and for my partner to take me out for a lovely meal.

A streptococcus throat infection when I was seven. I was off school for about half a year with it, partly because the medication was a bit slow in the fifties, partly because when I might have gone back there was a flu epidemic and they wouldn't let me go back.

Obvious ones come to mind (Alligator,Snake etc...)
I'd probably choose Birds, I just hate seeing anything caged.




How much money would it take to get rid of your T.V.?
There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating staying in EU.

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of staying in the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens will be caused by leaving EU?
3. Should the supreme court ruling on British subjects be based in UK?

We've had no TV reception since January, but the licence is due today so I'm going to get a new sat dish, I wouldn't have a TV if it was up to me but Mary wants it for the long winter nights.





How much time do you spend watching TV in an average week?

In the winter, I'd estimate ten hours. Some days it never gets switched on - especially in the summer but in the winter I usually find a few things to get into.



If you had the time and money to take up a new hobby, what would you choose.

We'd have riots in my house if we didn't have a telly for the fitba'!!


If I had the time and money I would definitely spend more time scuba diving and skiing. Both great activities, but very heavy on the old wallet.








What was your best holiday ever and why?
