I have broken free from the constraints of time and literature to address you personally, and might I say it is an absolute pleasure to do so.
To those who are following my memoirs, I thank you; they are to take a break over the Christmas period, but rest assured that they, and I, shall return in the new year.
Take this opportunity to eat, drink, dance and raise merry hell and I, dear reader, shall do likewise. I have but one pair of festive advice to share with you – wherever there is mistletoe, use it freely, use it well and use it often.
A very merry Christmas to you, one and all!
