    Keeping a homemade Christmas pudding till next year

    The Mrs made her pud back in September but we didn’t have it over Christmas. Will it keep till next year? The recipe states that it will keep for a year, will an extra 3 months make a difference? It’s covered in grease proof paper and a muslin cloth, I thought about putting it in an air tight...

    Cyclist Christmas Gift Flowchart

  5. Cycleops

    Lit up like a Christmas tree.

    Given this is what cyclists may want to achieve on these dark nights Ford have developed a Christmas style jumper for cyclists which generates a Christmas tree shape of light on the ground around their bike which supposedly helps motorists to give them sufficient room. There are no plans to...

    Christmas songs that mean something to you.

    Just heard Chris Rhea singing "Driving Home For Christmas". Years ago I was called out on Christmas eve to do an urgent quote for a government Dept. They actually handed me the order, some £50Ks worth. Driving home, mid afternoon, filthy weather, stuck in motorway traffic and that song came on...

    When you get christmas cards from your neighbours.

    We live in a small(ish) close of about 20 houses. There are none we don't like but maybe 6 we converse with regularly. Us 7 have posted christmas cards through the letter boxes for some 15 years. No problem, a nice touch. Today I found one posted from a new(ish) couple further up the close...

    It’s beginning to look not a lot like Christmas....

    Less than 4 weeks to go. Just been into Sainsbury’s and around the town and it really doesn’t seem like it should for the time of year. Ok, clear blue skies and very warm on the seafront, but barely a hint That we are weeks away of from our major festival. In JS, there are mince pies, Stollen...

    Upgrading Cycling Clothes

    Hi I started cycling quite regularly in May at the start of the first lockdown. I've kept it going since the lockdown lifted and, despite the darker, colder mornings, still take my bike to work. I'm thinking of getting some better clothing for my rides. I've got a decent jacket (Gore) and...

    Christmas Food & Drink

    Thought it may be worth a thread to share tips and ideas for Christmas... only 2 and a bit months to go!!! I love the whole buildup - planning, shopping, and eventually, the cooking! Tend to be a bit of a creature of habit and quite traditional too. Kelly Bronze are great turkeys, although I...

    Students at Christmas ..

    So if the great and knowledgeable politicians decide to prevent students returning home for Christmas ... How are they going to do it .... Armed police / Army putting up barbed wire fences around their accommodation. Shooting these that try to escape. Student Escape Committees tunnelling under...

    Christmas Eve Ride !

    It has been a very crazy Christmas Season at work. Work, work, and more work and no time for any bike riding. Finally the craziness is done and I'm almost back to normal. Just the end of year inventory audit coming up and then the bikes will be out and about playing in my Winter Wonderland. I...

    A (true) christmas tale to make you smile (or cringe)

    Someone Mrs D knows told her about one of their clients who is the marketing manager for a large national group of foodstores (I wont name it). As such she is responsible for sourcing and distributing xMillions of turkeys. She has just realised that she forgot to get her own family turkey and...

    Christmas dinner-the truth

    Christmas Dinner.... I have concluded that the inevitable stress of Christmas dinner is created by adverts, supermarkets and TV chefs... It's a Sunday dinner for farks sake!!! We do it quite happily 51 weeks of the year but can we the consumers be trusted to manage by ourselves on one day of the...
