Turkey plucked

As I live alone I usually don't trouble much with Christmas. Quite happy to have sausage, egg and chips or something similar. This year, however, I've decided to do things properly... Turkey, roast spuds, sprouts and so on. Got hold of a small turkey through a friend, and have spent ages plucking it. Never done it before... What a palaver!! Feathers everywhere...still, it's done now, so all that remains to be done is to kill it then cook it. ;-) Very best wishes to you all, Bernie

Lovely to make the effort Clock! I have never plucked and dressed a turkey so you are one up on me!! Just think you can do what you like when you like, watch TV of your choice!! Enjoy, much love Sheila Xx

Hi Sheila... Just as you responded I was busy editing my post, to make it more clear that I was joking. T'would be very cruel to dress the turkey before killing it! But thank you so much for your kind words. Bernie.

Hi Clock (Bernie), A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU. You made me laugh, poor turkey, you should know better - lol. A shame you are on your own, isn't any charity group organising a communal dinner where you could be with others who would otherwise be on their own? Anyway, enjoy your meal and have a good day. Love Lizzy x
