For those of you who I know in actual real-life human being form, this is not for you. If you have not received a real Christmas greetings card, then it's because I disagree with your views on football.

To the rest of you - Uncle Willy, Aunt Nilly and all - rejoice! I created this delightful sketch for you. See. I care. Really. I do.

I hope I don't offend anyone this Christmas.

I hope my car doesn't breakdown. I've got to drive 170 miles from 3pm on Christmas Day. In 2006, part of the M1 was blocked, so I had to drive through Wakefield. Have you ever been to Wakefield? On a Christmas Day? It was weird. I hear that they pronounce 'The Westgate Run' as 'Westgate Run'.

Baubles is an unusual word. Doesn't sound 'pretty'.

Until and through 2009, relax and be good to yourselves.

And don't forget, the best blogs are those with the seamless narratives.

Happy Happy and a great 2009.
I got a very long informative comment today on Haiku and it's disappeared. It could have been a John - obviously highly knowledgeable. Any ides? you started it!

Mindless optimism will do for me.

There is no logical reason why your car should break down on christmas day, but i know how you feel .. i managed to fit in a service on my car today, just in case. A sort of holiday paranoia.

good cheer to you x

Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas etc, etc.

One thing that does sound pretty is the street name Shaffalong Lane, which attaches itself to a thoroughfare that runs from nowhere to nowhere, in Cheddleton.

I have been rolling that one around my tongue for a week like the proverbial last Rolo.

Say it: Shaff-a-lonnnggg! Mmmm. There - you see?

It's only after the tide goes out that you learn who's been swimming naked.
