Cheery present (to myself)



Emma Bridgewater mug celebrating fifty years of Private Eye and available to subscribers. The lettering inside reads, 'Not everyone's cup of tea'.
My mug, my tea.

In other news, I just heard Slade for the first (but definitely not the last) time this season. I wish I had Noddy Holder's royalties.

Brilliant! Enjoy.
Wee sister
Thanks!
Oh, I like that, jolly good present to yourself. #2 son always reads Private Eye and I think he'd love that mug :)
I'm wondering how soon those mugs will be appearing on eBay at inflated prices! Should have bought two.
Fun mug!

Noddy Holder has his pension secured.
Thank you! It looks nice on the dresser.

Yes, his Christmas songs still have a good few years in copyright. Strange how Slade were so wild-seeming in the seventies and now Noddy does intelligent broadcasting.
Nice mug. Have you heard the Noddy Holder joke where he goes into a gentlemen's outfitters and asks for a kipper tie, and the assistant comes back with a cup and asks if he takes milk and sugar?
Hee, good one.
Oy! I come from the same place as Noddy, and I talk like that! ;)
Love the mug, by the way. At work, our Harold Macmillan sculpture is dressed up as Santa - I'll take a pic of it and post it. He looks great. He got into the spirit of Movember, too.
Oh, please do post that.
LJ is putting these replies in the wrong order, as usual.
I love a Black Country accent!
