Merry Christmas 2016

Just a short post to wish everyone that may read it and all my followers a very Merry Christmas, or else all the best for whichever holiday you may be celebrating or just in general.

The Queen’s festive message this year hailed unsung heroes (by a strange coincidence) and how she is inspired by “small acts of goodness”.

It feels a little strange, wishing Anonymous People Who Live On The Internet happiness.  Barring a few exceptions, we only know each other through the words and pictures on our screens and yet passing on well wishes (for whatever reason) seems to be the right thing to do.  It perhaps shows how easy it is to create a sense of community and togetherness.

It’s been a fairly quiet day for me.  I’ve seen all the family and made a success of the great responsibility that is the stir fried sprouts.  The Purchasing Department bought chestnuts instead of almonds of this year, but sometimes you have to make do with what you’re given!

Moo got Dreamies, ping pong balls and other toys but seems more interested in playing with off cuts of string from the present wrapping.  He had a massive breakfast and a special dinner so he’s had a reasonably good day too.

All the best to yourselves and your families and loved ones.

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you, yeah.

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I don’t need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won’t make me happy
With a toy on Christmas Day

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

Oh, I won’t ask for much this Christmas
I won’t even wish for snow
And I’m just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe

I won’t make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won’t even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeer click

‘Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do?
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

Oh, all the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children’s
Laughter fills the air

And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa, won’t you bring me the one I really need?
Won’t you please bring my baby to me?

Oh, I don’t want a lot for Christmas
This is all I’m asking for
I just want to see my baby
Standing right outside my door

Oh, I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

All I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey
