A work colleague (hence forth known as WC) was telling us about her trip to Tescos:-
WC: Do you know, I spent ages last night in Tesco's walking up and down the aisles looking for mincemeat. It's Christmas and they didn't have any mincemeat. Not one jar. Huh.
Me: Why not just make some? It's very quick and far nicer than bought stuff.
WC (in a very sneering tone): You obviously have far too much time on your hands if you can make mincemeat.
Me: Not at all, I'm very busy, so I got up early this morning to make some.
WC: I'm not getting up early, I just wanted to stay in bed today.
Me: Ah well, I haven't got time to stay in bed, or walk up and down aisles in Tesco's.
Is it me?
And on a slightly obsessive note, I am becoming obsessed by Christmas trees made from magazines (but not nearly as much as my mum who now goes into shops to get those free Christmas gift magazines just so she can make more trees - dad says they now have a forest at home of them!) Those magazine trees and the wreaths, as so beautifully explained by Domesticali. I have come home from school at lunch time just so I can make some more!
