Wishing ‘Spillers everywhere a very Merry Christmas

As our annus horribilis stumbles to an end, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope for a much better 2017. Here’s a playlist.

  1. Thanks, Carole, and I wish you and yours all the very best too.

    On a personal level, 2016 has been pretty darned good – my version of turning 64 is a whole lot better than the picture painted by Mr McCartney – and I am trying to persuade myself that there will be a general rise in decency and respect in 2017. As people realise that all this meanness is utterly soul-destroying and joy seems in very short supply, they will start trying to counteract the hate and lies (even if it’s with love and lies….). Maybe. With a bit of luck.

    • I wish I had your faith, Chris.
      But that notwithstanding, all of my best wishes to all of you, and I hope to see many of you for real again next year.

    • I became 61 on the 22nd. I await Mr McCartney’s predictions with interest. When I get there, I’ll have outlived my mother by a year.

  2. Thanks for the playlist Carole, happy Christmas to you and yours and best wishes for the New Year. 2016 wasn’t bad for me (she said cautiously, remembering there are still 7 days to go …!) Still in the relationship that started this time last year; sprog is growing up – mentally, if not physically; dog is settling into sloth mode and tfd is bringing kittens in the new year. What more could I ask, apart from drugs, music and booze?!

    • Sounds like my present!
      Between the 3 adults in our house today –
      Drugs = Beechams & paracetamol;
      Music = Michael Buble & Jethro Tull;
      Booze = 1 bottle of cheap sparkly as Bucks Fizz (breakfast), 1 magnum of Sauvignon Blanc (across 2 meals), either beer or port or Snowball (mid-afty), & miniatures in the Christmas crackers (to finish off our Christmas dinner this eve).
      Bedtime!!!
      My love to you all, and my fingers crossed we all dodge the flying bullets in 2017 – a year I’m fearing like never before.
