I was supposed to be attending a conference in London for all Conservative Candidates today, but I seem to have got the dreaded cold lurgi with a vengeance. I've been fighting it off all week, but today I feel as if all the energy has been drained from my body overnight.
Anyway, I shall be spending today entertaining you, dear Reader, as well as catch up on some much needed domestic administration. I suppose I'd better start writing some Christmas cards too. It would help if I had actually bought some. I shall also be following Jeff Randall's lead and throwing away any Christmas card which doesn't actually mention the word 'christmas'. So should you be sending me a card, please don't send one with 'Season's Greetings' or 'Holiday Wishes' inside. 'Merry Christmas' will do nicely!
