Spotted online today that Scarborough was busy with the arrival of Santa, now we are Mid November, is it me or are these events getting earlier each year
A little bird told me Peri , no names no pack drill................. alright it was Joey, that you were currently claiming compensation for an accident you had . According to the little birdie you were changing the honey bell in his cage and they gave you the wrong type of ladder you fell and hit your head on the cuttlefish
If you do Pearl I would love to be there.The whole thing started in July?
We were in Inverness in October a few years ago, just in time for the Xmas shop to open!! Him in doors said " let's go and have a look!"
I told him " I'm on my Bl**** summer holiday!!!"
Drags on for months, I hate it.
Roll on January 12th.
Edit... The little prickly pillock over the road has had his xmas lights flashing for the last 3 weeks, I'll snap and go over there with wire cutters before December.
If it helps, Santa, as he is normally pictured these days, was finalized by Coca Cola. And "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer" was written as an advertisement for Montgomery Ward's, a department store. And of course, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade always ends with Santa Claus on his sleigh with the reindeer.Not to be outdone the Easter Bunny was running around Whitby dishing out Cadbury's Creme Eggs ....................... or may as well have been . What I find all the more annoying is heralding the arrival of , by publishing the dates in the National and Local Press , of the Coca Cola truck which has "naff all" to do with Christmas and plenty to do with how much merchandise and Coca Cola they can shift .
This most annoying slogan is part of their campaign "Visit the truck in a glittering winter wonderland setting and enjoy festive photo moments – and a 150ml Coca-Cola zero sugar to help you get in the Christmas spirit" no it @"££$% doesn't it just gives you wind and makes you nauseous . There is talk that if you recycle a can they will donate some money to Crisis which is the only mitigating thing is this total charade .
In late October I was in Grasmere on a literary tour. We passed the gingerbread shop on the way to the grave and monument that we were there to see. One of the other women in the group sidestepped into the shop and I followed right behind her. Bought a small package and enjoyed nibbling on it for the next few days. We discretely showed the leader why we had drifted off from the group and he had the grace to not scold us.And I went to the Gingerbread shop for good measure and bought some , the smell wafted past my hooter when I was yards away .
Did you have a chance to visit Betrix Potter's home, Hill Top Farm in Near Sawrey on B5285?In late October I was in Grasmere on a literary tour. We passed the gingerbread shop on the way to the grave and monument that we were there to see. One of the other women in the group sidestepped into the shop and I followed right behind her.
