Oooooooooooo, isn't it cold?

I don't know about you but I'm loving the cold weather.  Thanks to the chill in the air, the shops have been almost empty of people and the roads have been surprisingly clear of traffic.  I'm not saying that I like the cold itself, only the advantages afforded to those of us brave enough to go out in it.

Christmas, on the other hand, I can well do without.  The relentless bloody happiness.  The stress.  The crowded shops.  The inevitable "X Factor" Christmas single.  Who needs it?  I'm going to treat this Christmas as just another day, no better or worse than the one before and the one before that.  I think that Scrooge had the right idea - let me keep Christmas in my way and you keep it in yours.
