I realise that we are a week away from reaching the mile-stone 18-month mark since I last posted. Plus, the overall purpose of this blog to try and get me to buy less stuff has FAILED.
Anyhow, I hope you like what's to come as I'm now going to sell out and venture into the land of the epic "Christmas Blog" for roughly 23 days as a trial run to see if I can get back into the swing of things.
Then, if you're very very lucky, I might even treat you to a post-Christmas New Year blog!
If that goes well, then you might well find yourself joining me to celebrate Blame Someone Else Day (13th January for any of those sad, sad people that aren't in the know) where I will do my usual schtick of making excuses as to why I haven't posted in 6 weeks then proceeding to talk about something completely irrelevant to the supposed subject of the blog and then trying to tie it in through some kind of strenuous link right at the very end.
But we probably won't get that far.
For now, though, I'm just going to post according to no schedule whatsoever about things that I enjoy at Christmas. Some of these posts might take place before Christmas even.
Awesome Christmas songs?
Best ever Christmas TV specials?
Books and stuff?
Heart-warming tales of love, loss and Pellicans?
The world's most complete archive of excellent Christmas cracker jokes this side of Swindon?
I sincerely hope so.
So be prepared for the tiny and thoroughly underwhelming impact that this blog might well have over the course of your life for the next month.
Thank you. And good luck.
