The Thompson Brothers on Christmas

16 December 17 words: The Thompsons

The green grocers say "Bah humbug"

CHRISTMAS DAY
We’re going on a bicycle ride to Lambley and back with our friend Ann. We’ll only go after the Queen has been on television, of course. We just thought that we haven’t been on a nice ride for quite a long time so it will be good to do something healthy while everyone else is getting pie-eyed.

CHRISTMAS PRESENTS
You ask us this every year and our answer is the same: we don’t buy each other anything for Christmas. One of us wants a red F-Type and the other wants a Range Rover Sport, but the chances of us getting either of those are slim. So we won’t be bothering again this year. Maybe next year. If we win the lottery.

BLUE PLANET TWO
It’s utterly amazing. You don’t realise how deep the sea actually is and how big whales actually are. They had a shark whale on there and it was as big as a commercial aeroplane. Very well done all-round.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
