The 2012 Last Mince Pie in the Larder Thread

Thread to record the dwindling of Christmas - pine needles in one's slippers after the deccies come down, remains of Christmas food in the kitchen etc etc

Keep it mournful and melancholic, pls.

Took the tree and stuff down today while J was back at school.

When he got home, he cried.

The 2012 Last Mince Pie in the Larder Thread.

Which is better than a Last Chicken in the Shop Thread of course. Sorry, just jealous, none (mince pies) available here.

RevdKnoxHowie - as a pie thread this just had to be yours!

There are dust marks where the Christmas cards were. ......

I've got 3 boxes of chocolates left and loads of cheese, crackers and a box of biscuits. Not to mention all the Christmas port and liqueurs.

Spotted the wreath on the front door when we popped out late yesterday afternoon, several hours after we'd finished packing away the Xmas decs and had put the boxes back up in the loft....

This morning, waking later than usual, you notice that most people in the street have gone back to work. You're on annual leave till next Monday but foolishly agreed to write a report over the break so will have to get on with that. The feeling of relief mixed with the knowledge that your days are numbered.

During the Christmas break, you've kept to your resolution to go running every other day. An attempt to balance out the Christmas excess.

On the plus side, you go to the post office depot to collect a Christmas parcel sent by a GU/NTT-er in Italy .....

What no Alka-Seltzer or a red nose?

Fear not Lefters - that thread will reappear on 15 December 2012.

Now that all the Christmas visits and other pleasurable obligations are out of the way, you can start reading those new books and listening to whatever music you've been given. Outings to nearby towns to wander around, take in the sights and confirm the essentially grounded nature of your life.

I listened to my music first thing Christmas Day. I don't think the neighbours needed to hear "Edge Of Heaven" at that time of the morning.

I haven't read my Take That annual yet.

I am going shopping tomorrow. I expect I'll just get blown about.

The "sights" will be drunks on Grainger Street.
