Please don't tell you've never wagged work in your life? in any job? Some days are made just not to work.

I've honestly never wagged a day off work in any job since I was 16.  I did go to work with a hangover once in 2007 - I've had 2 hangovers, that was the second, I earned it, I felt awful and it was appropriate punishment that I did paperwork all day whilst feeling nauseated. I once walked out of work for a calm down, got around the corner, called my boss to tell her I'd run away because I couldn't take another second with the team numpty and she said to wait for her because neither could she and we went and had lemon meringue pie and coffee. Now I'm a locum I can take off any day I like, I just won't make any money so I don't take days off - I'm a harsh boss, if I wagged work I would have to give myself a warning and put myself on performance management!

The clients were lovely to me though; but they could afford better looking women.

U is for Uniforms. Uniforms will change throughout your life. We all come into this world in a birthday suit, then it's nappies, then school uniform and then when you leave school you may get a job with a uniform. We also have invisible uniforms when we're in our various roles outside of work; when your family are sick you are their nurse, when you make their dinner you're their chef, maid, chauffeur, sometimes we have to put our judge coif on and decide things. Just when we think it's all over and we are older and incontinent we may be back in nappies. The uniforms we wear throughout our lives can be great equalisers as well as symbols of what others see as power or status.....

.....and seeing a gorgeous person in a uniform makes my day  ;D

Anyway, they threw a party and (as you do) we all went down to the cellar to view the radioactive pond and one of us fell in. His name was Tony and he was- for years after (and he is still alive by the way!)- known as Plutonium Tone.  ;D

K is for Kiss without my tongue wondering, I just cannot stop my tongue from wandering, it has a mind of it's own and just won't behave, it likes to explore.

Dear me @steelfixer ! Has to be said that it brings back horrible memories of the first kiss with tongues I ever received. The boy concerned had- unfortunately- obviously recently eaten tinned spag bol. It was revolting and I nearly gagged.... :P Such a pity as I went right off him after that and I'd had the hots for him for yonks.  :)

L is for Languages. I just don't have an ear for picking up other languages. I have some rudimentary pigeon French and that's about it. Have always envied people who can properly speak another language.

I have a French O'Level and did Greek at Night School but can somehow speak more German and I only did that for 2 years in Secondary School  :nobeer:

M is for Music. I have always wanted to play Guitar or Drums. Have mastered 2 chords in my whole life so could probably be in a UB40 or Status Quo tribute act  ;D

N is for saying No - I am rubbish at this, if someone asks me to do something then I find it very hard to refuse.

(I should point out that this applies purely to folk asking for favours or help of some kind, before our chaps get the wrong idea!  If you put a sexual spin on saying no then I'm bloody fantastic at it!)

R is for Rivers- crossing them I mean. Being a keen hill walker it's not uncommon to have to cross a river (or at least a fast-flowing mountain stream) when on a walk and I'm totally useless at it. OH can leap nimbly from rock to rock but I, on the other hand, invariably lose my balance and fall in. It's reached the point where I've given up doing anything other than wade (and accept I'll have water in my boots and soaking socks for the remainder of the walk. Rather that then be squelchy from the neck downwards.  :P))

G is for Ginger. He was a (very imaginatively named  :)) stray ginger cat who was one of the many cats who adopted us when I was growing up. He had only one eye, a barrel-shaped body and little stumpy legs. He was the best natured cat I have ever met and loved people. We lived in a wee lane close to the local primary school and every afternoon at school chucking out time he would settle himself at the end of the drive by the corner of the lane so that he could be available for strokes & hugs from the children coming home.  ;D

U is for Uncle M who was our first cat. He was really Merlin but in his dotage he was known as Uncle M. He was the most sociable cat I've ever known bless him. He loved nothing better than a house full of people and was over the moon when we had guests staying. When they left he'd go around the house looking for them. Even when old and doddery he'd march around looking for drugs and the latest party like Iggy Pop.  :) He was 20 when he died.

She once rang me (this was some years after I had left home) to inform me that she had lain awake half the night worrying about my feet.  ???.

N is for "No!" - it's amazing how big a part such a small word plays in a Mum's role! ;D ;D ;D

As a mum I hadn't realized how often I was using that word until a little head appeared over the fence from next doors garden saying, "Where's Warwickno?" After that I tried to moderate its use a bit. Mind you it was hard with him...

M  is for Montauban in France.  This year the Royal British Legion have sold lapel pin poppies made from British shell fuses fired during the Battle of the Somme.  Each poppy comes with a certificate dedicated to a soldier who fell during the Battle of the Somme.  My poppy pin is dedicated to Thomas Allinson, who was killed in action in September 1916 aged just 19 years.  His grave is in Quarry Cemetery in Montauban.

Z is for Zanzibar to not only see the wonderful island and animals but worship at the house Freddy Mercury grew up in.

Now I know there are actually 37 days to Christmas and only 26 letters in the alphabet so how about a Alphabet game with a bit of a twist.

For the first 26 days we play it using the alphabet but mixed with the numbers like the 12 days of Christmas eg. 1st day Christmas there was a for ....

and then once we've done the alphabet we just do something for the letters Christmas?

Q is for Quiet Christmas

The words, if you haven't hear it before...
Words and Lyrics to Quiet Christmas

(Sung to The Tune of "White Christmas")

I'm dreaming of a quiet Christmas
Not like the one I had last year
I want quiet mornings
Not a person snoring
Awww....music to my ears

I'm dreaming of a quiet Christmas
With every bill I have to write
May my day be noiseless and bright
And may all my Christmas's be quiet.

I'm dreaming of a quiet Christmas
with every breath I take today
May the streets be noiseless
and children voiceless
Awww....what's there left to say

I'm dreaming of a quiet Christmas
With every bill I have to write
May my day be noiseless and bright
And may all my Christmas's be quiet!

Q is for quid pro quo - I need to stop saying yes to all 'favours' and start asking for help when I need it rather than struggling to be so independent when I'm spending time on everyone else. Not here of course and this is generally something that I have been conscious of for a while and my friends and family say to me, but then when I actually need help with something no one is available at the time so I don't like to bother them or cause a fuss..... I'm not very good at asking for help or admitting when I need it, but I do also need to stop being a doormat.... All suggestions gratefully accepted.

E is for Ersatz - a lot of my family refer to my food as 'ersatz' because there is no gluten, no meat and because Mr T is diabetic the jam is 'ersatz' because it has no added sugar.

Oh I've got some from Fortnums in my cupboard - blooming lovely with a sharp cheese.

R is for Rotary Grater - now if you don't have one of these you should get one. The rotary grater and the potatoe ricer are well used in my kitchen.

Can you chuck some of the jelly my way @tea? Hope you're beginning to feel better btw... :hug: :hug:

And yes, I could do with a rotary grater. I have a microplane one but I've been a bit frightened of it ever since the time I grated the top of my thumb off and ended up in A&E.  :P I bought a guard to use on it after that but it's such a faff with the guard that it's hardly worth it.

Pipped by @Indigo Warrior with my S!  ;D

T is for Toaster

Honestly @Skiddaw no fingers or thumbs can get hurt. You put the cheese or whatever else in the little holder and then hold the handle in one hand and turn the turny bit in the other. I got mine for £8 in the cool shop and it's a stainless steel one with different size gratery bits and one that makes slices. Even Mr T and Mini-me can use it without making a mess.

Nice idea @tea !  :)

B is for bag. Bear with me here. Some years ago, Mr S and I lived in a flat and on returning from a fortnights holiday I discovered what I took to be an old bin bag on our balcony. Assuming it had blown there by accident I chucked it away and forgot about it. A day or two later our upstairs neighbour called by to ask if we could return his extremely expensive tent bag, which had fallen from his balcony onto ours following him hanging it out to dry.... I denied ever having seen it (neighbour clearly didn't believe it) and it wasn't until several years later that I finally confessed to Mr S what I had done.  :-[

C is for Cigarettes.

As many of you know, I had an established quit that I frittered away in my mid twenties and, having started again, I managed to hide it from my family for quite some time.  There is no way to describe the shame when I was finally caught out and had to own up to having started again after all I had gone through to break free.

D is for Daughter's singing bird toy. I know it sounds cruel but my mum bought mini-me one of those bird toys that can record you and play it back or make bird noises at completely random times. It is no secret that birds terrify me and my mother is well aware of this. Well mini me was told to keep that far thing in her bedroom but it escaped and I think the batteries were going because the noises got more random and spooky so I hid it in a box of old DVDs in the cellar cupboard and she's never asked where it is so I figure she's not missing it too much.

J was for JJ's Bear In The Big Blue House Christmas Special DVD. I just couldn't take it any more  009. DVDs seem like such a good idea, until the child watches it for the 666th time in a row. I should be ashamed, but I maintain that it was a defensible action to prevent a murder taking place.  009

Your body was hiding Oxygen from your leg?  You need to talk to @KitKat, he knows all about that sort of thing!
