no white christmas this year haha.

simon just came back from his mum’s . he works shifts , working 3-4days and taking the same amount of days off. so he goes back to his mum’s house. she wants him to do that, to look after the house, and make it appear someone is living there , this is because she herself do not live there. she lives with her boyfriend. haha. i know modern families have all kinds of connections that are miles away from the traditional mother ,father, children, grandparents all living under the same roof.

he came back craving roast beef, so he is now in the kitchen roasting it. luckily i still got some of the potatoes and carrots that i bought cheap from tesco. so he can use that for the beef he brought back with him. i know it is late time to be roasting beef, haha. by the time it is ready it will be midnite. and he would be having a big meal just before going to bed. or maybe not, if he intends to stay up late which he might do. we both dont keep to normal hours of eating and sleeping. he does it because of his shift work, i do it because i dont work and so i can haha.

(added. 11pm. it is cooked and we are eating it. amazing it was so quick, but then beef is medium rare and so takes less time to cook and the potatoes and carrots are parboiled before hand. so in one hour u can finish the cooking. very delicious too. beef should be eaten medium rare, as it is tender. simon was saying his mother likes it fully cooked and he said it was real difficult to eat that as it was so tough. i think the gravy out of a tin is very nice too. this is one time when it is really nicer than making it from the dripping. and so easy to do too. just add hot water. haha. )

though i dont normally eat late at night. i did tonight but that was because his roast beef was too delicious to resist. haha.

normally  i can resist all the food ads i see in the tv which can make anyone hungry just looking at them. that is something i have noticed, so many food ads on tv. i am sure plenty of people must be influenced to open the crisps, or biscuits or snack on food just by seeing all those food ads on tv.

i see a tesco advert in today’s times newspaper (they are going for a higher class of readers) for the 39p veg.  so they have extended the cheap veg to another week. i guess because all the other supermarkets are doing the same. with lidl even doing one better , 29p.

what i noticed is that the meat section do not have a lot of reductions. for that i think we have to wait till after christmas, or new year.

here in uk, people go back for christmas to spend time with the parents. (it is like chinese new year for the chinese, or hari raya for the malays )so the bus and trains are now expensive. no cheap bargain fares. megabus is now about £9 -£15 per trip.

and christmas day is £28 on national express. who travels on christmas day? i am surprised they have any bus driver wanting to do that shift. haha. and they are saying there will be traffic jams on the motorways.

hope there wont be any road deaths. that is why among many other reasons why i dont like travelling around this time. so many others rushing home, the chances of accidents are much higher. so you are paying a lot of money to die. seems silly to me.

i shall enjoy staying apart from it all and just watch them stressing themselves out.

      it is really, i am still having the memories of it this morning. for those who want a quick roast, roast beef the way he did it is the best way. make it medium rare. now i think of it, most people , in fact everyone i know, make their roast beef well done, and that makes it a bit tough and dry. its tradition i think to make roast beef well done. and yet there is no reason for that, as it is very safe to eat beef rare.
