"Spent X-eve in Pubs. Snogged loads of dogs under mistletoe"
"Ta for Honking Mallard. Spent morning in pub. Home for Real Xmas turkey Dinner with sprouts & gravy"
"Walk to power station. Pub on way home"
"Steaming towards Budeley now. Walking back"
"Done five miles and six pubs. Back left is fine"
"Overslept this am - going to walk off excess festive pies. Meeting me mates in pub later"
"Home in five"
