I thought we’d give it a go now and then uh. Hopefully i get up a little bit earlier today, so uh good stuff that sunshine’s lovely this morning it was freezing. Last night we had fog until quite late and then um yeah. It was just really cold. I think it’s only about four degrees now, even with this sunshine, so uh, yeah, nice and cold. Where has everyone been? Are you all ready for christmas? Have you all got your prezzies and everything sorted and your decorations up it’s amazing how many um houses i see decorated at the moment, um back in sort of towards the end of november uh, a lot of the houses around there. I’Ve got outdoor lights that don’t normally have them, so that’s really good and i’ve actually got some to put up on there on ours as well, um, which i still need to do. We actually got our christmas tree up last night um, which was good uh we’ve got one. We put one out the front um on the front of the house, um, oh back in towards the end of november and um it’s. A living christmas trees was in a pot outside our bedroom window and uh yeah that looks nice. We’Ve got some lights on that they come on on a night time and uh yeah all good stuff, um right. What we’ve got planned for today, but we’ve got open. The calendar obviously and we’ve got to do a decoration, so i think we’re going to just put our hand in the sack today and and pull something out so i’ll have another sip of this and i’ll do that? Oh lovely, lovely, all right, here’s, my lovely sack! What are we gon na pull out of it today? What’S that? Oh, this is festive.
This is actually another calendar let’s put that back down there yeah. This is actually it’s covered in fluff for any other stuff that’s in there yeah. This is actually an advent calendar it’s uh, like a christmas hanging calendar oh yeah, get out of the sun there we go there’s little pockets that you can put chocolates and stuff in, i suppose but um, but what i normally do with this is. I don’t know if you can, if i sit here, where are we yeah see that sort of cubby hole there with all the junk in it? I usually pin it over that to hide all the junk so we’ll do that. Shall we right? You can see all the junk in there so we’ll cover that up quickly. Uh yeah put that through there i got a couple of pins right, so we’ll put the first one on and then i can see i can judge where to put the next one. So uh we’ll do it there, yeah nice uh, festive red, pin there we go and the junk is gone. Just like that. It’S christmas magic, yeah won’t, we there we go there, you go, adds that look lovely and festive let’s uh bring you back here to get the full effect. Oh yeah, nice and festive awesome, so i just had to shut the one blind down because the sun was streaming through. You have bright bright, light underneath and then like darkness from there, because the angle of the sun, through the window right – oh shove, it more coffee, how’s everyone um doing with tv at the moment – is anybody else watching christmas 24 we’ve been watching that, since it came On in november, uh she’s usually constantly on, in the background so we’ve seen all these uh hallmark christmas movies and it’s just nice to have on in the background, sometimes when you’re doing other stuff.
So yes right, another sip of coffee, just in case you couldn’t make out my wolf cup earlier. I like this cup yeah. You know me. I, like my wolves, all right. What are we going to get today then let’s find out. Shall we exciting, exciting gosh? Just like christmas isn’t, it so we’re on day, eight today with december we’re, a third of the way through the calendar already that’s, just a third of the car we’re, almost with today’s as well so cool right number, eight we’ve got no idea what we’re getting number Eight is down here, oh that door’s gon na miss me about today, and that right number eight is down here so we’re going for it, let’s zoom you up so let’s go for it. Let’S push in there perforations we’re in the grass on the picture. All right pull it open. Oh, oh, oh, oh, we got some shock absorbers that gon na focus focus focus yeah. We got some shock absorbers and do we get to fit them today we do get to fit them today. Awesome right right, let’s, see uh how this goes there. Mr move, the camera down there we go right. We’Ve got some shock absorbers there, a little bag of screws. Now, oh this! This is an exciting day with this lot. This is exciting. Okay, screws out there, wonderful let’s, bring the car back in so looking at the instructions. That’S the shock absorber you’ve got a solid piece of plastic that covers half of the the half up to the middle, like that benefit of focus.
If i go on try and focus there, we go so that’s the right way out. The solid plastic is at the top, for the looks of it, so uh don’t get them the wrong way around nathaniel and it looks like oh it’s. Quite simple, so you’ve got this actually on the on the chassis let’s hold it up. Are you seeing that? Is it focusing so you’ve got this part of the chassis and that part that sticks out and you’ve got the little lugs on the end? So one of these, with the plastic part at the top, goes onto the lug and then onto on the axle. You’Ve got another lug just below it, so you’ll probably have to squeeze them together a little bit to get them on like that. There we go goes on just like that: okay, so let’s get a screw in there before it flings off it’s like those little um. When you used to change the watch straps and you used to have to get a little screwdriver and dig the little um bar out, so you could get the the new, oh right, let’s, not try and be clever. Let’S uh put it down there. So i got a bit more purchase on it yeah and used to um flick the little bar out and the buyers just used to fling halfway across the room. You spend the next two hours looking for it uh these aren’t going in easily.
So you might need some help with this one. If i know your mum there we go that’s gone in and one down that side you can see what i’m doing this is quite fiddly. Actually, this is the most fiddly part yet because you’re trying not to allow that spring to there we go to pop off right. Here we go let’s. Tighten this one up, whoa that’s our first spring done. Yes, how cool is that right, i’ll pull pull out of? Also i’ll leave it in so i was going to pull the camera out a little bit, but this is more interesting than my face. Surely i’ll put that screw onto the inside there we go and another one yeah, so what’s your favorite christmas move is. Let me know in the comments i think my top number one is uh christmas vacation, national lampoon’s, christmas vacation with chevy chase and a very young johnny galecki from big bang theory and juliet lewis is it from um? Oh she’s done loads of films, aren’t. She and all the ones all all you, people that watch um that are watching christmas, 24 you’ll, know there’s a character on there that keeps popping up called mrs miracle or mrs miracle and uh. She actually plays um chevy, chase’s, wife, um chevy. She actually placed chevy chase’s, wife’s mum and uh all my lights, going off i’m, just gon na keep doing this. There we go yeah, she chase plays the murmur of chevy chase’s wife in christmas vacation very good articulates quite well.
So if you look at her in the christmas 24 movies and think i’ve seen her before somewhere, she was in christmas vacation oops, like this sides being a little bit more difficult oops. It just keeps popping off right finger in the middle hold it down. So if you’ve got a massive view of my hand, there yeah you have that’s the only way i can do it. I’Ll show you properly afterwards, we’ve got suspension here. You go yes, my favorite ones, christmas vacation um. What other ones do i like quite like jingle? All the way, um there’s, a wonderful life. I like that. I love that film it’s, a really long film, though, and you’ve got to be in the mood to watch that one, but um it’s well worth it. If you do um elf. Obviously everybody loves elf don’t. They and uh, of course, you’ve got all the home alone ones. I’Ll tell you what, though i really like the the new last year, there was a film that came out on netflix called the christmas chronicles and uh. I thought that was really really good. I thought it was really well done and it reminded me of um like an 80s christmas movie, it was like a throwback to an 80s christmas movie. It was really good, of course, i’m from the 80s. So i love anything. Eight is really, but it stars, kurt russell and goldie hall makes an appearance in it as well: his wife, his real life, wife and it’s.
Just a really good story. I enjoyed it. Um and they’ve just brought eight christmas, chronicles two as well, which looks really good and jen’s looking forward to the dolly parton one, the musical has just come out there. We go that looks a bit more rigid than that. Look at that oh we’re, getting there we’re. Definitely getting there, how cool is that that’s very good, very pleased it’s actually lifted up off the ground as well. Now so imagine when the wheels are on there, you’ve got some steering as well awesome cool right, let’s, pull you out right! Let’S just put these bags back into number eight screwed over there and cup of coffee here, right, that’s it for today, i’m afraid uh, it’s, all done nice and early. So that’s good i’ve got to go work now. So i will see you guys tomorrow and uh. I hope you got um got that far: okay, nathaniel um. I think you can really start to see that it’s looking like a car now yeah as soon as you get wheels on there, jobs are good, then uh, brilliant stuff. Right. I will see you tomorrow and uh december.
