Tried to find out how much it would be to leave 02, not an easy task – constantly on hold on the phone, or if chatting on-line it kept dropping, and then got 2 different answer on how much it would be to cancel the contract one was over £900 and the 0ther just over £400

20131226-121204.jpg20131226-121218.jpg

20131226-121225.jpg20131226-121243.jpg

20131226-121236.jpg

Watched Strictly Chrimbo edition which was better than expected, dinner, then DR Who which quite frankly was a pile of pants  – very disappointed, any kind of science fiction concept just thrown out for the option to chuck everything together and hope for the best/ fingers crossed it works – well for me –  it don’t – sigh

My review on digital spy

there is so much about this episode i didn’t like/ enjoy – when it comes down to it, i just don’t believe it any more  – science appears to be replaced with magic where anything can happen and there is no tension or dramareading through the comments from people, i can see that many enjoyed this episode, and feel emotionally connected to it – this current DR has left me cold  – some episodes in the current run i actually feel asleep – i find the writing/ production/ music all too heavy, like eating a really heavy fruit cake (but without the lovely cherries) and chocolate custardi don’t really do quotes, but if i did i would say that someone at DR HQ has to press the ‘less is more’ button

An evening of festivities followed……

Thursday – Boxing Day

Did very little, watched TV and films – ate – drank nothing but diet coke

Friday

Planted a ‘person’ on google maps in Iceland and landed here, do you think I will ever be there?
