  • I’ve been lucky this year I come down with the norovirus a few days back.
    Christmas and I haven’t had a drink or anything to eat since Friday night.
    On the plus side we’ve got plenty of food, drink and stuff to consume when things slow down and I feel confident that they will stay down.
    Shiteist Christmas in my life.
  • Chin up @charltonkeston

    Bucks Fizz, American lager that beer snobs would turn their nose up at, sparkling rose, gin, now back on the lager. Think the night will end with an Amaretto.

    Rarely drink at home so this all feels different

    Just tucking into a 2009 Barolo.
    Had a few cans on Neck Oil earlier.
  • Did my bit today. Driving duties.TBF I don't normally get too blotted Xmas day. Picked up the the family. Did a bulk of the cooking. Kept everyone topped up. Then took them all back home.
    I'm now back home demolishing a lovely bottle of pinot Noir and a great f******* wedge of stilton.

    Merry Christmas everyone.
  • Champers and the sherry prepping dinner.

    Then red wine.

    A couple of peronnis.

    Some of you will have a sore head tomorrow!

    I’ve had prosecco with orange juice pre and post Christmas lunch (we only have the one massive meal in my house) and since then I’ve been on the Borolo. Sainsburys finest but it’s bloody nice for all that.

    I’ve been trying not to get too smashed this year, I lost my Nan on Thursday (my mums mum) so I’ve been keeping myself in control. But she bloody loved Christmas and a good drink, the Irish blood ran stong, so this next one is for her and for all the lifers missing someone this Christmas.

    Sir Chrissy Powell bless you all!
  • Bucks Fizz early then whisky, g & t, more whisky, IPA, Vinho Verde, whisky and bed...
  • Few glasses of Champagne with breakie and then a couple of bottles of bitter after work whilst cooking dinner. Lovely bottle of Amarone with our dinner. Cold can of cider late on with cold meat sarni whilst watching cricket and WHTTLL Christmas special.
