Merry Christmas

I hope you are relaxing and enjoying time with your families. I'll be working from midnight and then again all night tomorrow, such is the luck of my draw this year. But I've been out there and experienced what Christmas now means and I'm not enamoured by it; where has the true meaning of it gone? Where is the goodwill to all? Where is the love and charity and Christian faith that is bound with it?

Unfortunately, the big white bearded guy; that obese symbol of the Coca Cola Corporation, is the only connection our children make with this time of year.

You don't have to be religious; you just have to be nice. I hope you are all being nice to someone. When I go into work, I will be nice to everyone. I'll do my best.

Happy Christmas to you all and thank you for sticking with me!

Merry Christmas Stu, I've been reading your blog for the past year and have always eagerly awaited your next post. Keep up the great work!

For what it's worth, you and your fellow colleagues really do make a huge difference to those around you. I'm a country girl myself, but whilst visiting London this week I felt so comforted at the thought of having you folks just a phone call away if the proverbial was to hit the fan!

I hope this shift treats you well and you get to see some 'real' Christmas spirit. It sometimes seems all doom and gloom in the big smoke, you should get yourself out into the sticks more often, we don't bite!

Take it easy :-)

You deserve a really Happy Christmas and hope you had one - so enjoy reading your blog. Oh yes what happened to niceness - lack of respect for others seems to be the mode these days. Or perhaps I'm just a Grumpy Old Woman!
