Christmas hat-trick

Mum had no prime playbacks last night so, as a precaution, I recorded an old To the Manor Born Christmas special which she watched. Dad used to tell us to "pipe down" during the opening sequence and would then remark on the supposed cleverness of the imagery depicting aristocratic country life.

I was reminded of the old boy earlier when a pen came spilling out of a cracker: "I'll have that for the office". Then when we returned from our dark plod around the village I asked everyone as I locked up: "No-one's going out again, are they?".

  1. "I'll have that for the office" - One of the best Dadisms yet, really does take me back. Not heard it for 30 years...
