Yes, it is that time of year again so before I get completely overwhelmed with my annual workload I thought that it was time to pop into my favourite website to say hello to my friends here.

Have you all been good boys and girls? Good, good, that is what I like to hear.

Right, so barring world peace and the abolishment of illness and disease (am not a miracle worker), what would you like me to bring you this year?

Ho, ho, ho.

Hey big guy! Nice to see you around again!

I'd really just like a break in the relentless rush of the everyday, thank you very much! A couple of hours peace to simply hang out without feeling guilty, without worrying about fetching someone here, or delivering someone there, without having to watch the clock, or having mountains of housework to attend to would be total bliss!

Ho, ho, ho to you too!

What do I want for Christmas, how about a nice mild winter? No, I guess that is asking too much, OK, I will settle for some nice photos of the grandchildren, always very welcome.

Season's greetings Santa. Say hi to my friends when you see them.

Ideally, I'd like a peaceful week without the disturbance of loud railworks 24 hours a day. As that is as difficult to achieve as world peace (apparently), I'll settle for whatever my kids want so that they are happy and smiling smile

How about a new job for me? I got made redundant a few weeks ago and have enjoyed the enforced 'holiday' but now I'm starting to get bored - I'm not too good at the 'stay at home mum' thing smile

Since world peace is probably beyond your capabilities, how about success and happiness for my children and grandchildren?

P.S. See you and Mrs. Claus on the cruise ship in January!

Hey Ho, Santa! You were so nice last Christmas in making sure our family was safe and together through the holidays that I think I'll ask for a repeat.

Hi Santa,
I'd like some rain and snow. Lots of snow, for the rest of the winter.
I'd like my sister to have positive medical test results.
Common sense worldwide would be nice, as would the winning lotto numbers.
Other than that happiness and a bit of peace would be welcome.

Have a happy season Santa. I know these are only suggestions so whatever you bring is okay with me.

Hey, Santa,
To spend some time with my friend and learn that her surgery went well.
To avoid the annual “holiday dramas.”
Those are just the main ones—but, as always, whatever you bring is fine.
Don’t work too hard.

Hey Santa, nice of you to pop in.

I'd like everyone I care about to be happy and well

Oh, and if you feel really generous, a win on the lottery wouldn't go amiss either.

Nowadays, this sounds like more than even Santa could handle. frown

Someone I know in the Austin area gets a bit distraught this time of year. Can you send them some happiness for the season? It would make my day to have that happen.

By the way, thanks for the better health for me over the last year! I feel so much better now than I have in quite a long time!

eek I'm sorry Santa when last year I caught your beard in the door and then ran around and kicked you in the pants several times. I didn't realize my 'kids' had spiked the milk for you with Jamaican Rum and got a little out of sorts. shocked
Does this mean it's rotten potatoes and coal again in my stocking this year? frown

I don't bear a grudge, normally, but cannot condone such behaviour so this year it will be coal and a lemon for you and if there is a repeat of the violence then next year you won't even get that.

Since I had already had a great deal of milk, sherry, whiskey, brandy and fizzypop to drink, spiking my milk with rum had little effect, I am normally well tiddled by the time I reach Canada.

Now you must excuse me, I have much to do and little time to do it.

Bye for now my friends.

Ho, ho, ho.

Ho Santa,

Nothing so complicated as world harmony and curing all ills for me.. Just the answers to the FT Riddle, Centurion Conundrum and the Code Breaker, please!

Thanking you in anticipation smile

Although I got it, I didn't ask for snow! It is the first falling snow on Christmas in Dallas since 1975.

We woke up to a white Christmas... which hasn't happened in... um... let me think...

Much of the time, we just get ice--and maybe a dusting of snow. Rarely on Christmas, though (and it's all melted now, but we're getting a wintery mix tomorrow frown )
