So many brilliant episodes, Hair by Mr Bean of London was the most recent one we watched
Mine are 8 and 4 and love him too. God knows how often I've watched the Christmas special!

This is the new ad for our local funfair/arcade where I played all the classics in the 80s :)

I can't remember the last time I laughed as hard as I did when that torch was dropped.

The blind down hill skiing broke me

And the fence they kept crashing into

I feel bad for even cracking a smile to it

Love love love it.

Already watched home alone 1 and 2 recently.

Xmas songs on the mp3 player.

Waiting patiently on Xmas music channels to start. I did have last year's recorded (and even had a wee blast of them in July haha) but my sky box died and I lost all my recordings.

I've got Home Alone 1 and 2 on the planner (and DVD, and VHS, and UMD) poised and ready. I haven't unleashed them yet, but when I do they'll be on every day!

The fact that im crossing another thing off my bucket list by going to see Billy Connoly next month. Front and centre block, 5th row.

After a six month saga, BT finally hold their hands up, apologise, and give me all my money back.
