Well ding dong merrily on high, but it's that time again!
Dust off the old fairy lights, find the one that's not working, realise you can't find it, throw the whole string of lights in the bin and go to B&Q to get a new set only to discover that they've sold out and the next container ship of Christmas lights doesn't arrive until January. Or does that normally only happen to me?
Anyway, all Wise Men and Women's thoughts are no doubt turning towards Christmas cards and this post is just to say that Meridian Primary School are once again selling charity Christmas Cards and this year's collection is a right cracker (did you see what I did there?)
Jeremy Banks - pocket cartoonist at the Financial Times and, more importantly, a parent at the school - has produced arguably his finest set of Christmas Cards yet: 6 glorious original cartoons on an Olympic theme.
They're currently off at the printers being printed, so I don't have any colour versions of them yet to put up here on the blog, but there's a black and white poster that shows just four of his designs for this year at the top of this post. Just double click it to open it as a larger image.
Like all the other years we've run this scheme, 100% of all profits go to the school and you can buy the cards with a paypal account or Visa card here on the website. Just go to the top right of this blog and there's a pull down list that allows you to choose the cards you'd like to order.
Anyway, I hope I'm one of the first people to wish you a Happy Christmas - and hope you all had a lovely 2011.
