Merry Christmas one and all

I realise everyone is probably going to be super busy baking, cooking and shopping for the next few days so I thought I would say 'Merry Christmas' now in the hope of catching you all. This forum means a lot to me, there are some wonderful supportive people here who have lifted my spirits when I've been down or worried. Hoping you all have a great time - I am going to be doing that interesting balancing act, trying to guess how much Buck's Fizz cancels out a helping of sprouts, INR-wise!

Dear Lis and all,

Thank you for those Christmas wishes. I am happy to have connected with you lot in 2014. One of the good things about AF! I will list the other good things in a post soon. I am presently in NSR which is the most wonderful feeling. I am savouring every AF-free day this Christmas season, for Christmases yet to come may be different. Just enjoyed a caffeinated coffee. Soon to go off to the Botanical Gardens with my son to look for native birds. Will cap the day off with a swim and a walk. Life is good!

It's wonderful to have you all here. In the words of the great Jeff Fenech - 'I love youse all!'.

Merry Christmas to everyone. Even though I don't write often I do read the posts daily. I'm thankful I have discovered such a great group of people. Now I need to find out what Bucks Fizz is....

From Wikipedia.. Sounds good!

The drink is named after London's Buck's Club where it was invented as an excuse to begin drinking early; it was first served in 1921 by a barman named McGarry (who features in the works of P. G. Wodehouse as the barman of Buck's Club and the Drones Club). The true recipe for Buck's Fizz (which involves more than just champagne and orange juice) is only known by the barmen of Buck's Club.

Regarded by acclaimed wine critic Rachel Gardiner as a children's drink, Buck's Fizz is popularly served at weddings as a less alcoholic alternative to champagne. It is also touted as a morning "antidote" for a hangover.[citation needed] It is also popular in the United Kingdom as a drink to be consumed as part of breakfast on Christmas Day morning.

It is good Di... I've got some nice stuff that's actually quite low in alcohol but is lovely and fizzy. And lots of healthy Vitamin C of course :D
