  1. Have loved your Christmas crackers Jon – my jokes are sometimes a little near the mark or silly haha – this one is not bad:

    A man in Scotland calls his son in London the day before Christmas
    Eve and says, “I hate to ruin your day but I have to tell you that
    your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is

    “Dad, what are you talking about?'” the son screams.

    “We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer”, the father
    says. “We’re sick of each other and I’m sick of talking about
    this, so you call your sister in Leeds and tell her”.

    Frantically, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone,
    “Like hell they’re getting divorced”, she shouts, “I’ll take care
    of this”.

    She calls Scotland immediately and screams at her father, “You are
    NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m
    calling my brother back and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then,
    don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?”and hangs up.

    The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife.
    “Done! They’re coming for Christmas – and they’re paying their own way..”


  2. Thank you Sue, brilliant joke, ta muchly everso…and another one – just like that!

    I went to the doctor the other day,
    I said ‘with all the excirment of Christmas I can’t sleep”
    he said ‘ Try lying on the edge of your bed, you’ll soon drop off’

    Happy New Year to all blog contributors and readers – long may it continue…..

    From our neighbour: NO Fireworks in Machico tonight, will try to confirm.

  3. I will probably spend this New Year’s Eve like every other year. In front of the TV set. It’s a tradition in our family — snoring in the new year.

    Makes a change from christmas jokes

  4. I’ll be spending New Year’s Eve like every year for the last three… in Funchal watching 19.5 tonnes (why didn’t they go for 20?) of fireworks let loose in the bay. I know it’s literally watching Euros go up in smoke, but I love ’em! This time I’ll be on a boat so I hope the sea stays calm otherwise I’ll be providing a display of my own.

    Happy New Year everyone!

  5. friends will be playing rock in one of the local bars from about 9pm onwards then there’s a local fireworks display and then celebrating until the early option for us this year as my wife has a bad cold…so watching the Funchal fireworks and staying over is out this year..
