So who is your cousin marrying? Benedict Cumberbatch?

I promise! And i will also let you know the reaction when I sign the card " now your naked couplings won't make the baby Jesus cry, love Bette Davis"

Lol, my cousin is completely normal (male cousin btw) and is a clinical psychologist so i will ask him what he thinks of all this! perhaps he can tell us some family history secret.

DC stopped fighting now, hooray!

love this....reminds me of Peter Kay's mother in his bits about his mother on the answerphone messages

Loving thread but v offended by your name OP angry. Norman's daddy is of course my late husband, Vincent.

And Canestan as a secret Santa would definitely be code for "you're an irritating cunt".

You'd better come back and tell us!

You're going to sign his next card with a random actor's name, aren't you?

'Dame Maggie Smith'?
'Helena Bonham Carter'?
'Helen Mirren'?

Did you ask your brother?

Is it an autograph?

Ladies. We shall never know. My arsing bro didn't go to the wedding despite knowing about it since April. Other relatives managed to fly in from the USA but can DB take a 2 hour train journey? No. It was all because no children were invited to the wedding so i think he refused to come on principal, but I had to go on my own and leave my own DH and DCs at home. Didn't stop me having a good time seeing everyone again and wishing the lovely couple joy. AND ANOTHER THING.... Our mother had a bad brain aneuryism last year 2 months before DB's son was born and she's still not 100%. I agreed that DH and i would look after mum over xmas 2011 as DB wanted to go into "xmas lockdown" and just focus on the new baby. ONLY DB's SIL tagged him on facebook on xmas day and they'd gone to his wife's sister's instead so poor old mum only got to see her grandson for 40 mins two weeks before xmas and nothing over xmas. NOW arsing bro has suddenly announced that he, wife and DC are going on a 3 week holiday over xmas so mum won't see her grandson AGAIN over xmas.

Don't care if you're reading this bro. You don't answer the phone or reply to my texts and a bunch of flowers is not going to make up for you "screwing up xmas".

So, as I said ladies, we shall never know.

really cross face

I always though Kenneth Brannagh was a bit of a knob.

Enjoy your own Christmas with your mum,hope she is better now.
