Tomorrow is the last day of the year, and we finally go to Swindon to celebrate Christmas! Surely nothing will stop us taking my mother to visit my brother and family? If I blog during the day tomorrow you know that something has gone wrong! I'm really looking forward to it. It will be a relaxing day, I get on well with my brother and his wife.
2009 looks as though it will be an interesting year. The troubles in the middle east look as though they are at the point of escalating, and wars and famines etc around the world will probably take centre stage for many. However, in true British style we have something about to happen here that will not only take our mind off all these things it will also totally overshadow everything else that is going on, and I am sure that even Gordon Brown himself is breathing a sigh of relief at the announcement.
Yes, it is true. Andrew Lloyd Webber is going to help choose the song that will come last in the Eurovision Song Contest. Apparently this is the new contest that will grace our TV screens for the next several months. Frankly, there are five syllables that fill me with dread, and are an absolute guarantee that I won't go anywhere near a television until it is safe to do so. Those five syllables? Why: and rew lloyd web ber, of course.
Such a shame there is nothing to look forward to in 2009.............
Or is there.....................?
