A funny, car, Christmas and youtube video

I wonder how many people have actually done this?

Wednesday I was out in the roads by 8 am; wished I had stayed home though, as the roads were treacherous with black ice.  I had to go to the garage however, as my low tire pressure indicator light had come on.  Turns out I had a nail in one of my tires.  Cost to me ZERO!!!!  Turns out I have tire guard on my tires, which means I can get repairs done for free, and if they can't repair my tire they will replace it for free.  It comes with the purchase of the car and lasts for 60,000 km or three years.  In my case it will be three years, as I have a grand total of 9,000 km's on my car.  I had no idea about this prior to this visit, so Merry Christmas to me I think!!!

Started to wrap presents on Wednesday afternoon, so now the living room looks as though a bomb has dropped in there!!  I am having a good clean out of the wrapping paper bag, as it's like the bottomless pit in the bag.

I have had an "incident" regarding a Christmas card or lack of in Britain, and truth be told, this may be the last year I am sending anyone Christmas cards, as I am fed up of the whole thing.  My brother doesn't send cards, he donates to a charity instead, and I think I may go that route myself in future........... :0(  

This is a very beautiful rendition of "O Come All Ye Faithful,"

What a thing to have an incident about! I think the donation to charity is a good idea...people will just have to get over it if you do! I was just thinking about all the money my family spends on sending Christmas cards...I am talking all my brothers and sisters...if we all donated to one charity...it would be a nice donation.

Awww it bums me out that another person is giving up on Christmas cards, but the charity idea really is a fantastic one...
I loved the joke! Cracked me up!

I donate to charity too. I go to see the people at the heart charity who helped me and give them a cheque- they're far more grateful for it than anyone would be to receive a card from me.

I like that donation instead of Xmas card giving idea.
