My mate's coming round in about an hour ... and he hasn't bought me anything at all. But I'm not bothered in the slightest ... because he's got
schizophrenia & has been really unwell over the last few months. Christmas is his "big thing" ... and I just can't wait to see his face when he
unwraps his gifts. We've all chipped in and got him a portable DVD player, loads of DVD's, a new flatscreen tv, a mobile phone, clothes, chocolate
and everything he'd ever want. He'll be ever so pleased.
Then he's getting his big meal, well, him & 7 others ... which I'm preparing right at this moment. The roast beef is in the oven, the turkey will be
going in too in about an hour ... I suppose, having had a look at the food, the best gift I could get as a once-a-year chef would be for all the
Christmas food to go into the oven at exactly the same temperature ... so far I've got 5 different temperatures to negotiate with 2 ovens. Yikes ...
it makes cooking an absolute tightrope.
Perhaps some enlightened supermarket executive could consider this "issue" for next year !!
