Happy Christmas!

Hello all! I am writing from David Dalley's study while he and Faith prepare another sumptuous meal for us, Dave and Sarah are watching Carols from Kings in front of the roaring fire and I am anticipating watching 'Strictly Come Dancing'in an hour's time.

The jetlag has been evil so far on this trip, and the first 2 nights I was wide awake despite not having slept for the previous 3 nights...this left me a grumpy human being with no reserves of grace or humour. Mind you I did enjoy an episode of Morse at 2am and a bar of chocolate stolen from my mum's Christmas tree.

Fortunately I have now slept the last 2 nights and so hope to survive Christmas Day without shoving Christmas pudding up anyone's nose in an antisocial frenzy.

It has been fabulous to see the wonderful Dalleys although the time has flown by and I am already wracked with sadness that we have to say goodbye.

Rumour has it that Sarah is going to break the habit of a lifetime and arise early tomorrow so that we can exchange pressies before Dave and I drive the Popemobile back to Bournemouth in time to join the rest of his family for the manic celebrations.

(By the way the Popemobile is Dave's parents car which they have kindly lent to us. It has high seats and windows and resembles a vehicle from which the Pope would be glad to be seen waving and throwing incense about.)

So that's the news from us...

I wish you all a VERY Happy Christmas!

Oh post pictures of the Pope mobile! Please ... pretty please. I find it amusing to think of Dave driving it considering how he likes his cool bike and all that!

Merry Christmas dear friends! You are wholly loved and dearly missed!
