    I love Boxing Day. All the pressure and excitement has calmed down. Staying in my pj's watching rubbish and eating leftovers. Cold turkey and beef are far superior in my opinion. And as an added bonus the mighty Crystal Palace are on sky sports later!
    Kids are quieter today too which is always nice.

    How are you spending your Boxing Day?

    A much slower pace to the day today. Big tidy up. Put the grand daughters trike together. Find a phone to pick up tomorrow morning, sorted. Hit the leftover chicken and trifle. Quick chit, shower and shave and then hit the pubs for the rest of the day.

    Looking forward to tomorrow, it's the lads "sports" day. Pool, darts and doms. Pound a man. Point a win. Winner takes all. Starts 12.30. Meeting at Greggs ;)

    what fish do you keep? Funny how many plumbers are also fishkeepers!

    In my first plumbing company, I think it was three out of the four plumbers were also fishkeepers.

    I have fish, but just a few in the pond outside.
