Feel free to pop in ....
Stressed out , all four grand kids staying the night , i shall bugger off down the club very shortly.
Got the wife a Kindle , rather impressive , although i still prefer books.
On afternoon shift for the big day THANKFULLY all the kids are landing with wives girlfriends , not a fan of any of them to be honest ..
Win, give me a shout after xmas, got a load of books for kindle on a stick somewhere. not worked out what to do with them yet
I was supposed to be going out but cancelled till tomorrow lunchtime now.
The mrs has been dropping hints all day and giving me the come on, it's been 4 months, i'm shitting it....St John Ambulance on standby.
The kids, or the wives and girlfriends?
Agree with you on real books rather than a Kindle, maybe it's because I spend all day sat in front of the computer anyway, but can't think of anything worse than having to read books on a screen too.
Depends on the price, makes a serious difference
No it doesn't , books are better , having a Kindle is like picking your nose with a glove on , it just isn't the same ...
Anyway , heres the famous vid from top of the pops ...
Some daft bugger got Jockie Wilson instead of Jackie ...
RC , love the wee kids , hate all the wives , bunch of bitches , not overly keen on my sons come to think of it ...
Happy families, eh?
Have a good Christmas anyway, with the kids if nothing else
Swoop, for me at least, price wouldn't make much of a difference. I don't tend to read all that much, when I do I'm usually happy enough to just pick something up from 2nd hand/charity bookshops. Did recently buy a couple of new books (new as in not 2nd hand, not new as in recently published) off Amazon, just checked the price I paid against the Kindle price, they're 23p cheaper on Kindle
Aye have a good Christmas all. seems like every buggers getting a kindle this year apart from me. not that i want one mind as i don't do much reading. The only time i pick up a book is when I'm on holiday and I bet i'm not the only one.
I've just been adjusting the presents under the tree and two of mine have made a 'chinking' sound like the coming together of glass which I'm presuming is alcohlol of some kind, if not I'm going to be very upset
I was at my sisters last night and her hubby mentioned he cooks the christmas dinner as do I, when i asked him what he was cooking he started realing off frozen veg, aunt bessies and bisto ffs. he seemed a bit shocked when I took the piss out of him.
Have MTV classic on at the moment Wins, they're playing the 40 greatest Christmas songs of all time, soft cnut i am.
Bings 'White Christmas' number 20, I'd have thought it would have nailed number 1.
lets see where the Pogues and Kirsty end up.
This is bollox, Frankies 'the power of love' in at number 19, somebody at MTV wants sacking.
I read a mixture of real books & on the kindle, depends which is cheaper. amazes me when people talk as though you can only do on. I didnt think I'd be won over but I have been, & I'm not that much younger than Winrew......decades rather than centuries certainly
Winrew, if you havent read Jo Nesbo you'll like him, & I just noticed Amazon have got a set of all his books going for £9.99
Terry Pratchetts stuff the same
I know you can obviously do both, but using a Kindle requires a large-ish initial expense of buying the equipment in the first place, which paper books don't require. Not knocking the Kindle, but there's no way I personally would get anywhere near enough use out of it to justify buying one, even if I did want to spend more hours than I already do staring at a screen.
Had a few last night, told myself that was my blowout, now back to the grindstone, relax & write.
