Well, alright, maybe I dont, I’m a bit old for that now, but all the same…its a nice idea?
So here we are, 3 days from the big event, and just 1 more working day to go, tomorrow. Actually, thats a bit of a strange one, given there is no horse racing now in the UK, or Ireland until Boxing Day, but still the gambling goes on. Foreign racing, greyhounds, and virtual racing will keep assaulting the punters through the next 2 days, and indeed those computerised chances to lose (or occasionally win) money, on the machines now in all betting shops. Oh, football and sport betting too, of that I’m sure. Yes, we actually shut on Christmas Day, the only day now that the betting shops actually shut. People will still be betting online though, that is for sure!
Shops used to shut on Good Friday, and these 2 days before Christmas as well, but money nowadays is the main concern, and so the shops are open. Not quite so bad in our place, but not good, all the same!
What am I expecting for Christmas in gifts, no idea. I was expecting the usual choccies and booze routine, but I’m told there has been some ‘out of the box’ thinking done this year, so it will be interesting to see what I get. Something 20’s related might make for a good bet lol!
2014 looks like having an interesting start for me, beginning with the release of my 5th ebook, when I get it back from my wonderful editor, James. The other interesting looking event early in the year, could be me getting to be a hypno-bot, at least for a little while, now that should be fun! More details nearer the time, I suspect.
The video, a Christmas song, a live version from somewhere I will visit in 2014, Albany. Probably my favourite Christmas song in all honesty, probably because of the nature of the feelings, and lyrics
