    Mind you, I've still got a few left over from last year. I'm not a heavy drinker, as you can imagine. Heavy - yes. Heavy Drinker - no.
    Peter and I are not boozers so at Christmas we go for some decent red wine and champagne with dinner. He likes a bottle of Port and I always buy him a decent Scottish Malt whiskey.
    However, It Is the one time of the year I get through copious amounts of Bailey's Irish Creme and Advocat.

    I like the sound of your wines... might look out for them... where did you get them ?

    Specialist country wines, ciders, sparkling fruit wines, fruit liqueurs, preserves and gifts from Lyme Bay Winery

    And very reasonable prices.

    The Blackbeer & Raisin is gorgeous & more like a liquer.

    The Garden Mead is particularly good. You can identify several garden herbs from the nose alone - in particular the overtones of mint.

    Some people realise they need to lose weight when they see themselves In a photograph at an unflattering angle or when they realise they have to lay on the bed to zip the denims up.... but my moment was none of these. My defining moment tonight was when I witnessed something I had never seen before In all my days.

    So when you go Into your bedroom to fetch something and you find your small Jack Russell dog curled up asleep In one of the cups of your bra... that's definately the defining moment for me to lose weight.
    Oscar, I love the way you have written that!

    Although I have the problem just the other way around. I lost 4 kilo's in 2,5 weeks during my stay in Ireland running after my brothers kids and I do not gain weight very easily. And my jeans just keep sagging down even with a belt at the moment. Hoping christmas will sort that

    The most important thing is being happy in your own skin, just like you said..

    On a side note: I just checked on the bmi thing and I am appalled at how low my weight is "allowed" to be before being underweight. That just seems so unhealthy.

    Oscar, what are you going to make with the 6 lobsters? The lobster as it is and butter sauce? Sorry i am a bit out of my whatsit with things from the sea. I have never eaten lobster before.

    The only difference I've ever been able to tell the difference between crab & lobster (apart from the shape, of course) is that crabs are a lot cheaper - the taste is just the same.

    Crabs tend to be a bit more work to extract an edible quantity of food, and most crabs actually have more flavor. If you are only eating the legs from the big guys, like King Crab, you are probably right about the taste being the same.

    I prefer Shrimp and Crawfish, myself.
