What’s the word for something for when you have a thing and do it to death?
Usual rules apply. Only posted these to Facebook. Should have done Twitter too, even though it’s a bit of a toilet these days, I could have got some good #numbers !!
Opening Gambit … In previous years my first one tended to be in Wetherspoons with an old work chum. My old work chum then got a transfer to Derry. He was going to come down too but then Wetherspoons scrapped Christmas Dinners, so nuts to that!
2 – 6th December – Acton & Sons
Current Work’s Christmas dinner … on a Tuesday?!?!?
#3 – 7th December – uEat (University of Ulster, Jordanstown)
I had a programming test the day after my Xmas do (I got 88%) – I came into Jordanstown early to avail of a turkey dinner. No student discount though (it was about £8!!).
#4 9th December – RGB
Old work Christmas dinner
#5 10th December – Whose Art Café
No mash, and gravy was like the gravy you get in a Chinese Takeaway. Poor Show.
#6 – 14th December – work
Work Canteen – ate at my desk – Improvement on last years
#7 15th December – Sainsburys – Hollywood Exchange
Now in it’s 3rd year, my trip to Sainsburys with Marty. Quite average.
#8 – 17th December – My House
One I made myself. Five years in my house, so it’s the fifth “Belfast Christmas Dinner” for me and Leona, this year we had guests too (two fussy 7 year olds). No dramas and everything went to plan (i.e. I got my timings right and the oven didn’t pack in this time).
#9 – 22nd December – Cast and Crew
Met some friends for lunch. Was okay, but not for £12.95! Regretted not getting a burger because they looked good!
It was this one where my sister asked if sandwiches count (Nope).
#10 – 24th December – Murphy Browns
Another staple in my Christmas dinner month! Something to do us before we hit the road
It was here where McKay commented if I ever calculated how much my “December Hobby” costs. In short, next year I might keep a running total!
#11 – 25th December – My Ma and Da’s
Another good year! Only three types of potato though, but at least they were the best three (roasties, champ, garlic creamed – don’t @ me)!!
