Apologises first, I did this blog post at the beginning of the week & have only realised today that none of you could see it & the reason for that was………..
I had saved it to draft rather than uploading it – what a numpty I am…….I really must learn to double check the postings before going on to my next job.
Apologies over with I wish is say a really HAPPY CHRISTMAS in JULY to you all. If any of you saw the Lord Mayor’s parade on Saturday you will have seen how our little celebration is spreading – at least one float was celebrating just that = Christmas in July YIPEE.
I want no excuses for you all not wearing your best Christmas finery this weekend …so dust off those christmas earrings & let the fun begin.
