Christmas spirit...




A Happy Christmas to my three-hundred and sixty-seven thousand readers, and also the several friends and relations who responded this year.

Next year really will be the one where we all bounce back, and with a following wind, BPs and I will be able to buy a new hat each, and maybe use some expenses for those long lunches we've missed for so long since the last sorry lot consigned us all to recession.

Right, that's enough politics for this year, the week is young, and bottles need to be polished, cheeses need to be gloated over, peanuts hurled over the shoulder for JRT, presents for two (soon to be three) grand-children, and lovely family, Mrs S in demand mode for an early tincture, I'm in de-mob alert, and before I can say "'Bye for now", I've just realised that it is totally pitch dark, and I was supposed to go down to 'The Patch', and dig a few leeks and a parsnip for supper...

Oh, bugger...;0)

Hiyaaaah, Pips! *waves*

Happy Crimbo Scrobs to you and yours. Hope you Santa brings you the right coloured socks this year too.

Thanks for keeping all us passers-by {are you being just a tiny, tiny, tiny bit, er, economical with your stats meter read-out?} partially sane throughout the year. Enjoyed the bantering and the giggles and the music. Will be sharpening up the pitchforks for 2013 - just in case.

Hope next year brings all you want and may your leeks never ... whatever it is they do.

Aaaaw Reevers, the leeks are in fine fettle, thank you, and yes, I'll just keep the post rate up to about five a month, as it is great therapy for Scrobs Inc, and gives me something to like more people for.

You guys out East have a life well recalled by Mrs Scrobs in her early days (forces stuff), so we all understand what you feel and read and eat too!

Bless you guys out there, and of course, elsewhere, as this medium is fab for just exactly what this blogosphere is all about!

Have a great Christmas you guys - we're going to with a great old friend staying with us and there may even be a few tinctures and crisps etc...;0)

Michael said...

Reevers, you may well have guessed, that Michael is Scrobs.

He was given that name soon after he was born...;0)
