2016.

Let’s be diplomatic and say that 2016 was…  a missed opportunity.

However for me 2016 was a good year, both personally and professionally.

As always I could not have done anything without the help and support of family, friends and colleagues.

So, if you happen to be reading this… best wishes for a hopeful 2017.

Merry Christmas!… (I make no apology for re-releasing my massive Christmas smash from last year)…

…And a happy Hogmanay! (it sounds a bit Scottish)…

The family “Best of 2016” playlist is now available!

Once again Christmas dinner at Thomas Coram was just about perfect!

Once again Christmas dinner at Thomas Coram was just about perfect!

Giles Wilson is a lovely man. I met him a few weeks ago at new Broadcasting House (my second favourite place in the world). He said cheerfully, “How’s year 26 going?”

I replied “actually, it’s been a bit tricky…”.

Which it has. But if you happen to reading this you are one of the people who have helped me through another tricky year.

So I’d like to thank you, and wish you and your dependents a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.

Never give up!

One of the best things about 2013 was becoming a parent governor at Thomas Coram school. They kindly invited me to their Christmas dinner!

In my Christmas post last year I hinted that the previous 12 months had been a little “chewy”.

I won’t repeat myself.

However if you are reading this (or are one of the strangely large number of people who have listened to my music in the past couple of months) that means that you have helped and supported me this year. Probably without even knowing it.

So I wish you and your loved ones a happy festive season and an optimistic new year.

Thank God it’s Christmas!

The small number of people reading this will know that in some ways I’ve had a difficult year.

These days some prefer the word “challenging” instead of “difficult” and “challenges” instead of “problems”. This irritates me. This kind of language seems to come out of an unfortunate “will to power” mentality that permeates the zietgiest.

Still as one of the many good things about the year was my 13 year old daughter completely demolishing Nietzsche in two sentences in her school essay about God, there is always hope for the future.

So if you helped me during my difficulties in 2012 (and if you’re reading this you probably did) I’d like to thank you.

And wish you and all your dependants a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous and delightful New Year.

Merry Blogmas 2010!

I’ve been ill.

So very low visibility.

So there’s unlikely to be anyone reading this.

But if by some chance you are – a merry Xmas to you and all your dependents.

Although as I write this post I’m still feeling poorly, it has been a very good year.

Thanks to everyone who made it very good.

Merry Xmas!
