And so, the final posting from Mayo-land before I jump on a plane and scurry back to the sun. For those of you remaining here I wish you scarves, gloves and central heating. Looking on the bright side, you should get visited by the chubster in the red suit first as you are closer to the North Pole (assuming you've been good boys and girls that is).
Personally, I have been very good this year and as my letter to the chubster was sent off in plenty of time I may even get what I asked for. I completed my portion of the Christmas shopping with plenty of time to spare and without having to do one of those last minute rush around the shops at the worst time of year things. It's a shame I won't get to see the little Goths faces on Christmas morning but I will be thinking of them and will endeavour to not weep too much.
Fortunately, as I found out last night, Godzilla (ma-in-law) has changed her plans and will not be bringing her little cloud of doom to stay with us thus making an even more festive season than was anticipated. In some ways it's a shame as I had already made my battle plans, downloaded multi-megs worth of work related documentation so that I could justifyably lock myself in my office whilst she was in attendance. Now, I suppose I will still have to read it but will also be able to spend a large portion of time filling myself with festive goodies whilst watching the google box.
The only problem with our cable provider in Spain is that there is no BBC (bloody good channel over Christmas) or Sky Sports so I will be missing out on the football too. On the flip side, everything is cheaper there - in particular my best friend Mr Daniels. Saturday will be a short trip to El Corte Ingles (the supermarket) to stock up, particulary the lovingly presented roasts that they offer each year - complete with luscious stuffing.
In the meantime I wish you all the love and cuddles you could wish for, copious amounts of food and drink and for the ladies....Gothis kisses to you all XXXXX
Yo los deseo una Navidad Feliz y un Año Nuevo próspero
