You dont need food in a giant wicker box which you have no room for

There’s nothing worse than getting masses of food in over Christmas and then finding out that someone has bought you a lot more food in a giant wicker box which you have no room for.

Or you can do what I do, and get the cheapest hamper you can buy, so it’s basically a wicker basket stuffed with loads of hay-style packaging with just a packet of biscuits and a jar of posh chutney inside.

It sounds tight, but your friends will be grateful in the long run.

o A motorist has been filmed playing on his laptop while driving his van at 50 miles an hour in rush hour traffic on the M25.

Does anyone else think this is absolutely unbelievable?

It’s staggering.

You mean to tell me that there’s actually a bit of the M25 where you can go 50 miles an hour during rush hour?

o A house on the London council estate where the classic sitcom Only Fools And Horses was filmed has sold for Del Boy’s dream, of one million pounds.

Which kind of begs the question, why don’t all the cast of EastEnders just sell their houses for two million, move away and stop being so miserable?

o Do you think that fish which are caught be fishermen and then released back into the water, are the aquatic equivalent of humans who claim they’ve been kidnapped by aliens and then returned to Earth?

Do you suppose any of their fish mates believe them when they say they were caught and returned to the sea?

Or do they all just think they are mad in the same way we think people who claim to have been abducted by aliens are?
