Just finished the last of my wrapping and had a wee Baileys, looked at the time and saw its now Christmas Day!
Merry Christmas dosboddians! Hope you all have a good day, whatever you're up to.
I gave (or will be giving in the morning) a Nintendo Switch, getting (well.. got already) a combi drill and an impact driver. Loads of other little bits and pieces that I'm looking forward to the recipients opening.
Now that Boris has likely secured at least 5 years, perhaps even 10 years of being PM, what are DOSBODers predictions for the long term economy and, specifically the imminent early 2020 Budget?
I am assuming it will be more of what we've seen, stagnation and low growth, a few bungs to the building sector, and probable axing of IHT (to be rebranded as something else no doubt).
I spotted this strange piece on the Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/dec/13/super-rich-family-buy-65m-house-to-celebrate-johnsons-victory . It has all the usual Guardian stuff: rich overseas buyer brings forward purchase now that Corbyn has been ruled out. What the article fails to mention, as reported also by the Graun a few months ago, is that the Tories are mooting an extra 3% SDLT on foreign buyers... I suspect that's why they brought it forward.
Going a bit Mumsnet with this one adding some seasonal light relief. The kids have quite cleverly cajoled us in to getting an elf on a shelf for the run up to Christmas. The idea is that the elf checks up on them when they are in bed and gets in to mischief while they sleep. When the children get up in the morning they have to discover what the elf has been up to.
Tomorrow is day one for the naughty elf antics to start. I blatantly stole this idea to begin with but will be being more creative for the rest of the month.
Any (appropriate) suggestions/ideas welcome.
