‘Ello, one and all. I thought I’d stagger towards the keyboard and wish you all a Happy Christmas before completing the speech I’m preparing for Barack Obama and David Cameron, both of whom I’ve invited for a slice of cake after our Christmas lunch. I’ve no desire to be rude to either of them, but our table is just not large enough to take them, their families, an assortment of detectives and a small parcel of spare parts for the helicopter as well as my own family.
Neither of them have replied yet but I’m quietly confident I will be hearing the sound of executive rotor blades some time during lunch tomorrow as the helicopter, complete with leather seats and on board burger bar settles on the roof of the apartment where we live.
Low key is the order of the day. Both of these guys are just ordinary folk at heart and I don’t want to embarrass them by making too much of a fuss. Poor old David. I know he can get an earful from the wife for the way he holds his fork, but I think the best thing to do is not to notice,
Needless to say I would love to invite a load of my blogging buddies along as well but we just don’t have the space. In the circumstances, let me offer you all a sincere merry Christmas, and say its been a real pleasure reading your words this year.
