I decided against sending individual Christmas messages to friends as I just have way too many people in my phone book now – and I certainly am not sending a generic message out, not quite my style.
So I thought I would wish all the truly important people in my life a Merry Christmas – my blog readers!
All 40,698 of you across 126 countries – I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
And to help get you into the spirit, I thought you would appreciate a picture of your favourite saint:

But Christmas is a time for giving as well as receiving, so I thought I would offer a gift to all of my readers, which is a picture of my Christmas cracker gift, just after Christmas dinner.
I really hope you appreciate this:
And finally, proof that even I can get a Christmas kiss:
