sleigh bells ringing
And so, it's time to head away to the countryside to see The Family and The Friends in Galway. I've a week off (which for a journalist, I think, is pretty good seeing as how last year I had about 3 days off and enjoyed a festive dose of animosity with 'management')
The home time visit will also, hopefully, give me a chance to post up end-of-year blog stuff, just like everyone else.
I've spent most of the year finding my feet with this blogging stuff, taking riotous abuse from my friends for having a blog in the first place, met some great dudes and dudettes (and simply corresponded on t'internet with some too)and discovered what I think are a friendly, knowledgeable, cool bunch of people, all doing different kinds of things with their blogs and all providing me with hours of entertainment, music and laughs.
This is not my last post for a few weeks or anything (unless I am grabbed by 'Xmas cheer' and disappear off the grid for a while) but I'll just wish all of you readers, commenters, browsers, visitors and peeps in general a Happy Xmas and I'll raise a glass of red wine to you all in the next few days.
I've left you with a classic Xmas picture that all the kids will defo enjoy. Ho ho ho Santa, you crazy, disgusting lush.
Have a good 'un.
