The hyperactive child is asleep. The wife is wrapping presents. Monty is in his basket. Treacle is sitting next to me.
Me? I’ve just signed my Corporation Tax return and written a fat cheque to the Revenue.
Ho ho and, indeed, ho. Merry Christmas.

Worth reading. The best advice I had was to only ever buy live mussels (we get them more-or-less straight off the boat) and to tap them when you clean them. Live, fresh mussels will close when tapped. Anything that doesn't move is dead and therefore suspect (though, I suppose, still quite edible if fresh).
