    Christmas & Christmas Dinner!!

    I detest Christmas dinner with a passion. All the fuss and stress means that no one really get to enjoy any of it. If there is the slightest problem, it get blown out of all proportion and arguments ensue. Every year without fail I end up sat there at 6pm wishing I could just go home. I thought this year was going to be different. I thought we were at home, just me , the Mrs and my two kids. We were going to have pork pies and snacks and nibbles all day. Basically wanted to just suit ourselves. Since found out the wife's parents have played the 'Your Grandma could be dead next year' card so now we all have to traipse round there. I dread it every year. Bloody hate Christmas day , but boxing day I get out shooting with the Boy and my dog, Love it !!

    Mini One

    Chaps, Not shooting related but ive been offered a Mini One for decent money to replace my about knackerd Ford Focus. The car is only really used to get me 3 hrs down the M1 and back once a week. It needs to last a year tops. Basically like the Focus, it will be used, abused then scrapped. Question is, what are these like on long runs. Will it be a nightmare 6 hrs stuck in a tin box, or are these more like a proper car to drive ? Will it be revving itself to death or will it cruise happily at 80mph ? Its a petrol one, not sure on engine size. Are they economical enough ? Cheers

    Chain saw sharpener

    Another vote for the Stihl easy sharpener. Dead easy to use and really quick. From blunt to sharp in a couple of minutes and you cant really get it wrong

    Brandy

    A mate of mine has done me a few favours lately and I want to buy him a decent bottle as a thank you. He drinks brandy. I wouldn't know a good one from a bad one ! Recommendations appreciated. Budget £30 - 40 ish. Cheers

    Thank you Fiskars/Gerber....

    Thanks All, Just fired in an email to see if they'll replace mine. How likely are they to do it due to the fact it was my own ham fistedness that snapped it in the first place ?
