'tis the season to be jolly....tra la la la la ....

Things not to do during the festive season.

Shopping - "Are you going to the christmas sales?" asked a friend of mine. Mmmm. Why not I thought as I made the very short journey towards Croydon and turned back at the first hint of traffic and volume of people. Avoid large shopping centres and supermarkets

A quick trip to Victoria did the trick. Quick journey and hassle free. Got served immediately. Had a nice meal. Came home. Hassle free. What a gem of a place Victoria is for shopping. Who needs Oxford Street.

Making New Years celebrations arrangements - They always go tits up. Safer to be locked in with a bottle of bubbly or down to the local drinking establishment that you know and love.

Prepare for any kind of new years resolution - Quit smoking? Cut down drinking? ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! - but will try

Contact old friends - I wonder how many people have tried this one. It just doesn't work. Not only that, there were good reasons that people drift apart. Just like scientist shouldn't drill down to Lake Vostok....You don't want to unleash something potentially lethal from something that has laid dormant for years.
