Hope you both had great birthdays! And don't worry, 623... 30 is a great age to be, regardless of what the critics say. Now when you get to pushing 40 like me it's time to panic!

Yes, indeed... I woud very much like to start you on your plums, Spicy.

I think Outnumbered has got the right idea but the kids are all too annoying for me to watch properly. I haver yet to bother with Mrs. Brown, though everyone I know raves about it.

At this point I would like to recommend the Alan Partridge movie to everyone. Saw it at the cinema and again the other day on disc and can truly say it is what British comedy is all about.

For me, the UK sitcom was crucified by the writers of My Family 15 years ago, though it had been flailing for years. The only brit comedy shows I will watch now are the ones Gervais churns out, though I accept he's not for everybody and they are not what I would describe as standard sitcoms.

And I know it's tradition - plus I adore them personally, I really do - but Morcambe and Wise repeats every Xmas is getting a little silly now. Why not just shove The Great Escape on as well and do it properly?

And I know this is an obvious criticism but who really wants to watch morbidity on Eastenders on Xmas day? (Or is this just me not understanding this because it still is insanely popular.)

The only mildly interesting things I caught this year was The Muppets/Gaga special (which focussed to much on the latter for my tastes), the interesting alternative Christmas Speech on C4, and Arthur Christmas, which I caught on sky Xmas eve which I simply ADORED. Can't remember the last really excellent family Christmas film I saw.

Anyways, it's January 6th now so I'll shut up for another year now.

Oh, how I miss the days of veg growing. It was one of my talents as a kid... noone had seen radishes like it on my cub scout pack on show and tell day! But now, sigh, I live in a flat. So I buy from ASDA. Just not the same. :-(

Never was a big fan of Fresh Prince, but still RIP Uncle Phil.

I knew we were in trouble this year when I noticed the Xmas edition of the Radio Times featured a great big picture of The Snowman And The Snow Dog... which was LAST YEARS main show.

Lets talk about crop rotation. Surely that is at the centre of everyones hearts.

Ate the chocolate orange today I always get given on Xmas day, thus signifying the official end of Christmas. :-(
