I had to scrape Sexy Beast as the car was frozen!
  I went down those country lanes without any street lights, with only my headlights on and some good Christmas music...
Some car drivers didn't like been stuck behind me sticking to the speed limit....
I didn't fancy finding myself in the hedge if I speeded up on the icy dark roads!

A Little Bit Of ABC....

We had a nice lie-in again↓
Hubby's dad didn't have a good night's sleep on the sofa.
I said hello to Sexy Beast, while hubby made to Bacon Sandwiches for all of us..
 After we ate breakfast.
Time to bring along the great CD to listen to while we drop off hubby's dad.
I go off to do my job for a few hours.
I came back and finished making the Trifle.
I had the bird tell me the Chicken and Leek Pie was ready..
I looked up the Birthdays: 
 Henning Schmitz: German musician (Kraftwerk) is 65 years old.
Curtis Mayfield:American singer-songwriter and soul musician (Freddie's Dead, Superfly)

second episode won the speedboat.
We taped the third episode
