1. "It's been a lovely Christmas". A handy phrase to use just before retiring to bed to lament the passing of a pleasurable day. Used this one at The Club on Wed night.
2. Standing in the middle of the road gesticulating in a misplaced attempt to help a driver reverse into the road - and actually causing a hazard much bigger than the traffic [usually there is none]. On special occasions accompanied by a wave of the handkerchief as the driver pulls away with a double toot [which Mum winces at].
