Happy New Year

Morly returns to normal after the festivities. It seems a waste that the Christmas lights are still on, as they are in Bradford as well. It might not be 12th night yet but it seems incongruous as the pre- Xmas consumerism moves into the post-Xmas one.

Chez Grey will be taking down the tinsel at the weekend and consigning them to the loft for the next eleven months.

Books read over the holiday:-

Peter Kay's The Sound of Laughter, entertaining but stops just as his career takes off. All of the plotlines for that Peter Kay thing are seeds sown in these pages. If you have read it and want to know about the Lido mural, click to see it.

The Inside Little Britain inside story was informative, especially when combined with the Little Britain Live DVD commentary & behind the scenes extras. Who is "Miss x?" Who cares!

The Book of general ignorance _not_ by Steven Fry (he wrote the intro) is full of surprising facts debunking lots of accepted wisdom. For example, Historic Scots Tartan was actually a Victorian invention and the smashing orangey bit in a Jaffa Cake is actually Apricot.

I hate taking down the decorations - it makes me melancholy. So I am leaving it till tomorrow!
