Happy Christmas

I can't believe that Christmas is almost upon us once again. How the years are starting to fly by. On the other hand, perhaps they have been doing that for a long time and I have only just started to notice. That's what they say, isn't it? The older you get, the quicker the years seem to pass. I didn't used to believe that, but I do now.

I guess you are all ready for Christmas now. Presents bought and wrapped, Christmas lunch organised, in fact I expect you are sitting back waiting impatiently for it all to happen. I suppose I am, really. I have just wrapped the last present. Though truthfully we don't have many people to buy for, not having had any family. So, in one way, Christmas is usually very quiet for us now. However there was a time when we held lots parties, inviting all our friends and had the most wonderful time.

I think they have finally finished digging up the pavements in Kelso. I hope so. It has gone on long enough. The Christmas tree is standing in its usual place in the Town Centre and there are lights strung along the buildings. But I have to say, the lights this year are not a patch on other years. There used to be strung across the road at intervals, making the town look really festive. Perhaps the council have run out of money this year.

I think that is all moment. If something wonderful should happen, rest assured I will be back to tell you all about it.

Meanwhile, I do hope you all have a Wonderful Christmas and I wish you all the best for 2015

Cheers everyone!!
