Merry Christmas to you all! I hope you are all having a wonderful time with your family and friends and like me, by now you are feeling suitably stuffed. And that’s not even including the main meal yet!

Apologies for my lack of posting of late. Would you believe that thieves stole 250m of overhead electrical wiring at the cottage for the copper and in doing so cut our power and heating, which when turned back on caused a surge which broke all of our appliances, including internet, fridge, boiler, fire etc. Apparently the copper in the wiring is pure and is worth a fortune, so the selfish bastards will very likely be having a very merry Christmas indeed.

Anyway no point dwelling on our bad luck when you think of the poor families affected by the George Square incident at the start of the week. It doesn’t bear thinking about and my heart goes out to those affected.

Well just a quick one to wish you all well.

Lots of love x
