    Christmas - what is the point?

    50 or 100+ years ago when most people weren't very well off financially and there was also a lot less selection in what they could buy for most of the year, the traditional Christmas dinner and all the trimmings and presents was probably something to look forward to as a break in the middle of...

    Go on little exercise how you done over Christmas?

    I approached Christmas with a determination to smash the Festive 500 and get loads of miles in over Christmas. Guess what, it didn't happen! A combination of bad weather, enjoying the warmth of the house too much and being busy. I've done about 60 km so far and have just been lazing around over...

    Favourite non-cycling Christmas present?

    Here's mine. I wanted a copy for ages, but it went out of print and used copies were selling for silly money. At last, a second edition has been printed (well, two years ago - been on my wish list for a while!).

    Christmas dinner at my daughter's house.

    For the first time in literally decades we haven't hosted the family at our house. My lovely daughter and her husband provided a terrific Christmas dinner and me and mrs Colly have just sat there and been provided for. I could get used to this.

    Any jobs need doing over Christmas holidays?

    I will be replacing a handrail post and handrail sometime before January 9th. Also, laying down some anti slip roll on the drive as it can be dangerous due to the slope. My wife fell down a couple of times and keeps moaning about it. Don't intend to start until the end of the week though.

    Aldi Christmas puds

    I'm sure I've read good reviews of Aldi Christmas puddings in the past. I drove past an advert for Aldi with a rather lovely looking pudding with orange slices. Normally I only go to Aldi when they have bike stuff on special offer, so I'd have to make a special trip. So are Aldi puds nice and...

    Can we talk Christmas trees

    We have always had fake trees, which would be pulled out of the loft at the beginning of December. This year,for reasons neither of us can fathom,we wish to get real! What: 6 footer and green Variety: clueless Stand: does it come with one or another expense Maintenance: how do I stop the needles...

    What you having for Christmas dinner?

    Just ordered Turkey for me and my folks from Waitrose - click and collect on a day of your choice, which I think is handy. Conventional turkey - basted with smoked bacon on top, none of the fancy 'porcini mushroom stuffing' ones that they're punting. I'll also be getting a gammon and the usual...

    Unamused Christmas Pet.

    Are you planning to make your pet a little festive for Christmas? This Husky looks distinctly unamused at his owners attempt to make him Christmassy.

    Christmas music recommendations

    It's started. The bloody awful Christmas pop music at work. For some reason it's considered acceptable for the next three weeks in the usually music-free lab to blast it out while some of us are trying to concentrate. I can't stand it. Also, our little girl has started requesting we sing...

    FNRttC Christmas Ride - Olaf's German Christmas Saturday 16th December 2017

    Ever wondered why we send Christmas Cards or bring Christmas Trees into our homes? The simple answer is its all down to German influence. We all thought he had left London but Olaf has decided to return from Frankfurt purely to lead us all on an enjoyable adventure of discovery around the...

    Anyone going veggie this Christmas?

    I’d like to have my traditional turkey or one of the alternatives but my wife has gone vegetarian now so I might have to follow. What non meat alternatives are there? I think I might enjoy that just as much but wouldn’t know what to get.

    Annual Christmas grumble

    It's not even past Remembrance Sunday and already it's all Christmas in the shops. I was in Caffe Nero and they had 'Christmas' written all over the windows in large glittery writing. They were selling Christmas wraps instead of falafal wraps. In TK-MAXX, they had 'It's lovely weather for a...
