What are you hoping to find under the tree?

Great whisky. New road shoes. Some violent but thought provoking graphic novels. A vintage film poster (pref a Polish rendition of Scorcese or Kubrick film). A Tie Fighter. Unrealistically, a disc equipped road bike with Di2 (it ain’t happening!)

I’ve a couple planned with friends, but mostly I’ll be making it up as I go along. Just whenever it’s fair to leave my wife Emmalou with the kids!​

Any Christmas Disasters?

Years ago I bought a Duck to be roasted on Christmas Day, along with other Christmas bits, which included some crates of bottles of Coke. I’d put the crates out in the back garden to keep them chilled as it was a VERY cold December… and somehow forgot the Duck out there too. Lets just say it wasn’t very fresh when I remembered it was out there…
