Well, if I had some 'Myrrh' maybe it would smell of 'Teen Spirit'. And 'Ok' it's as close as I could get for today's festive scribblings so I'm very sorry for the 'Weakest Blog-Song Link' of the year and I know it's a bit childish but Christmas is all about the children and brings out the child in me every December.
Let's face it we need something to brighten the mood as it's been a tough year for EVERYONE, me included. Trump, Brexit and Terrorism have dominated the news and no doubt 2018 will dish up another serving of unwanted headlines and life-changing incidents for the innocents. But let's forget that lot for now and write our own headlines.
Until then, there's just over seven days to enjoy the peace and harmony of the 'Annual-Mid-Winter-Yuletide-Time-Out'. It's an ideal opportunity to get some 'daylight' miles in the tank and work off some of the excess calorie-count that Christmas Dinner and all the trimmings offers. A good fifty miler will get rid of your main meal btw...
Anyway, in the best of Christmas Spirits have a good one. Enjoy the break. Crack in some miles. And enjoy the fact that tough old 2017 has nearly passed us by and a completely fresh 2018 is all set to go and ready for action, just around the corner.
