A Seasonal Salutation
Merry Christmas, everyone - an old story in a new format:
The weather outside might not be quite so frightful here in the Midlands, where we've been predicted a 'wet' rather than 'white' Christmas, but the fire in front of me is so delightful anyway! In a few minutes' pre-festive pause (actually, 'babysitting' recuperating daughter after operation #3!) I realise I haven't had time to write anything for a while - my wish for 2012 will be the return of the literary muse!
Instead, I came across some MIKE HARDING (no relation!) snippets on YouTube and this one seemed appropriate to the season.
I've been a fan of this comedian for years (even before I was a 'Harding', strangely enough!) but he's a great musician and writer, too, so there are another couple of clips to amuse and entertain - sadly I can't find my favourite: 'Quasimodo Meets the Virgin Mary' - the tale of a school Nativity play that had me in hysterics (and the rest of the staff at the school where I used to work!)
Anyway - hope you get time amidst the hubbub and chaos to enjoy the season - MERRY CHRISTMAS!
.....and I'll leave it to MH (no, not MY MH!) to have the last word:
