Well Hello to everyone.
We hope you are all well, healthy, happy and getting into the Christmas spirit with great vigour and gusto.
We can already hear those Christmas tunes playing away spreading cheer, creating smiles and causing those toes to be a tapping.
Come on all you bah humbuggers (we checked it is a word honest), trying to spread your negative humbuggery (found that too and just had to use it, sounds very Carry On if you ask me, shout out to Barbara Windsor who will be sadly missed). We are sure even you have to admit, that this year above all others, a good injection of Christmas joy is needed. So as soon as you can get yourselves cosy, snuggle up with maybe a alcoholic beverage (in moderation of course), something savoury and something sweet (go on it's Christmas, you know you want to) and put on those Chrissy songs and dream a dream of better days to come.
May we all at this time remember all those who are no longer with us, all those that we may not see but who are still in our hearts and all those that are right by our sides.
Christmas always makes us think of Dickens and A Christmas Carol (for me "Mr" the muppets version still rates highly. You just can't take the boy out of the man. Does anybody else feel just like a large kid, pretending to be an adult?).
So to end the blogs for this year, once again may we say in our best Dickensian voices
May we wish you a Merry Christmas and to one and all a Happy New Year.
