Back to Oxford, back to civilisation .... apart from Naughty George honking

Hello Dahlink, I am so sorry that I haven't been around for most of the Christmas period. I was like a flitting social butterfly, spending most of my Christmas and New Year flapping between northern cities beginning with 'L'. My last post talked about me leaving Leeds at Christmas, and then I went back to Oxford for a day or two, after which I left for Loughborough to celebrate New Year.

Just to claify: That'll be Christmas in Leeds, and New Year's Eve in Loughborough then. I did try and make an effort to catch up with my blog, but you know what it's like up north ..... their computers (if they actually own one) are powered by hamsters in wheels, and connecting to any form of wi-fi is regarded as black magic.... a shake of the head followed by a sharp intake of breath always preceeded; "It's all those micro-waves in the air, see. You can't see them but they go into your computer without you knowing and talk to the interweb. It'll only be a matter of time before wi-fis are doing the same with people's brains. You mark my words, it'll end in no good." Blimey. See what I was up against?

"You could set a password and wear a lead helmet," I suggested helpfully. But alas, my words fell on stony ground and I was stranded, internet-less, for virtually the whole of the Christmas period.

So that doesn't leave me in a good place - I need sympathy dude. I am now back in Oxford and I have 173 photographs to sift through, and approximately 5 blog posts (depending upon my whim) to catch up with. Plus I have to find storage space for the 100 million presents that Izzy received at Christmas. I am considering renting a warehouse and sending Izzy to live in it with her presents. But don't worry, I would be a good mother and monitor her progress using a webcam.

Pic.No.1. This is a taster of me doing what I mainly did all Christmas

Anyway, that's it for me this evening. I only got back to Oxford (from Loughborough) about two hours ago and I have more washing to do than a con on a long stretch. Oh that reminds me, I was driving to Loughborough the other day, when I passed one of those square white vans that transports criminals from one prison to another. In the dirt on the back, someone had written "Ho Ho Ho! Make sure you don't pick up the soap in the shower this Christmas!" I am gutted that I didn't manage to get the comedy picture of it.

So, I have a lot to catch up on, and I have missed visting your blogs. Ahhh, it's nice to be back xx

P.S. It's nice except for the fact that Naughty George rolled in cow crap today and is making my house honk.

Anne Dickens | The day after yesterday


  1. Naughty George does like the cow crap.

    The times he has rolled in it now he must have it off pat!!!

    I will get my coat!!!

    Happy New Year


  2. It's nice NG bade you such a wonderful welcome home. Nothing like the smell of cow dung to make one feel right at home. Glad you're home safe from all your travels kiddo.

  3. Annie!!! We missed you! =) that picture is a picture of you sitting on your ass for the holidays right? =) And the glass in your had has to be some sort of juice right? =) Because being the ultra responsible sort you wouldn't have gone jaunting all over the countryside drinking yourself into oblivion, right? =) *snort*

    My next question wouldn't it be more newsworthy if you let us know that NG DIDN'T roll in crap of any variety? =) Just curious, and still in awe that you can live with the little nitwit =)

    xo =)

  4. Welcome back Annie! Go ahead and nick that clip....see if I care! lol It'll give you more time to 'catch up', eh?

    Looks like you had a great holiday. Now to get back to the grind!!!

    Happy New Year!

  5. poor George. i guess a bath's in order for him. wonder what the attraction is with crap and dogs. they roll in it, sniff it, and if not careful , eat it, (gross).

    happy new year and looking forward to following you in 2011

  6. Hey Anne petal,

    I trust you and the weeun have had good Christmas and New Year!

    Sorry I've been AWOL for a while, been travelling with work.

    All the best for 2011 love - I hope to be back amongst your regular squadron of commenters soon!

    All the best,

    Bren xxx

  7. Hello my dahlinks! How I missed you. A happy new year to you all too. Sorry I've bit a bit crap at replying to comments, I have got a ton of emails and shit to catch up on. And instead of tackling it head-on, I have buried my head in the sand.

  8. I went up north once. It was shut. Happy New Year!
