He doesn’t like mince pies? :squint:

Dude, I know. I've tried to explain to him how disgustingly wrong he is on this subject but he is adamant that they're terrible.

Luckily that means if anyone ever gives him any I tend to get given them, so I'm kind of glad he doesn't want to see reason on the subject.

He sounds like one of those freaks you see on channel 4 that will literally only eat spaghetti hoops or jam sandwiches. You should move out before he murders you. He’s clearly mentally ill.

Mince pies are meh. Just incredibly meh.

I like the idea of a mince pie. The transcendental, perfect form of Mince Pie is no doubt glorious, but the mundane mince pie? So meh. Similar to Bailies. Sounds amazing; is not.

Mulled wine, though. Give me lots of that, please.

There was once a time when I liked you. That time has passed us by.

I'm just living my truth, no regrets. Mince pies suck.

Toffee popcorn is also balls. Salted peanuts? Ain't nothing.

Spittin' truth for the masses, peace out, losers.

Lots of errands and some laundry was done today. We bought lots of tasty Christmas snacks, and I really enjoyed eating them. We have good quality shortbread cookies this time. :keke:

I saw a Granny bring her granddaughter Christmas shopping to the toy shop to pick out her Christmas gift. I found it really cute 😊

My garden is on auto-pilot at this point. The weeds can't survive winter but chard, kale, and cabbage are thriving. My meals are benefitting from the fresh produce, as always.

The thought of snuggling up to a guy on a coach while we watch a movie. Love my thoughts 😊

Hey, if a snuggle on a coach was on offer, I wouldn’t turn it down.

I successfully finished my Christmas shopping and got my husband the gifts. I also wrapped the ones I already have (some are ordered online and haven’t arrived yet) and they’re under the Christmas tree. I’m not as good at wrapping presents as him, but they look nice. :keke:

I’m also designing a world map tile-set and learning the interesting kinks of the mapper. It’s not the same on this new game engine, but still workable. :glasses:

I did some adulting today and we went to the bank to fix some financial stuff. We’re going to end up saving a lot of money with these financial plans. :thumbsup:
