Sat there sitting last night, watching Waterloo

kept getting the adverts come up about the coming Xmas celebrations

now I remember good christmases as a kid while i was still all wide eyed and later when the nippers were at home

but Ive never had a christmas quite like what they portray it in the telly adverts, it seems like a different world to me,

have I missed out or summat or is it just fantasy ?

Fantasy Island Mick. You never see anyone arguing at all. And when the dinner is served it all arrives perfect and at the same time with no stress and big smiles everywhere.

Sounds like our house. 10 or 11 round the table. The Boss produces a perfect roast turkey dinner. Happy family and happy days.

....father in law dropping the whole tray of roasties on the floor. Sister bringing out the tray of invidual xmas puds.....unfortunately the daft cow had taken the wrappers off them & it was just a tray of xmas pud flavoured liquid.

I cook christmas dinner and I like to think I do a decent job. As I see it I am slave for the day and if everyone has had a good
day then I have had a good day.

When I was at uni my dream job was to be an advertising copy writer.

Seeing as I’m a pessimist, my Christmas ad would have involved Scrooge and then the turkey catching fire in the oven (which did actually happen once when I was a kid!).

Lucky I never actually applied the job !

Christmas, as far as I remember, used to be all the males stinking of pheasant and turkey guts, my mother pi$$ed and argumentative, the aunts and uncles wishing they’d never agreed to yet another alcohol fuelled day sat round the same table that they’d sheltered under a few years earlier. Every family Christmas I can remember always started off with good intentions but rapidly descended into a day of grief for all concerned until the main protagonists passed out from whatever excess they chose for the ‘festive’ season!

I was bloody glad I was out of it as soon as I was old enough to find some excuse not to be there.

Bah, humbug!

In the ads, I'm amazed how many white families there are with West Indian and Asian members. And wheelchair users.
God forbid they should miss anyone out...............

On a slight tangent about tellybox advertising.
Have you noticed that when floor or surface cleaners are being advertising people have got a kitchen half the size of an aircraft hanger.
