Please accept my warmest wishes for the Xmas period and the new year.
For those of us who have to work during this time of minimum staffing levels, the demands are different and I hope you join your families, friends or partners safely at the end of your shift.
We all know that some of our more dysfunctional families do not mix well with Xmas, New Year celebrations and alcohol combined. To all those who operate within our emergency services who will be trying their best to sort out the misfortunes and bad attitudes of the masses…………….. Be careful out there.
Also spare one small thought for the members of our Armed Forces who are serving away from their loved ones.
Whatever God you choose, or not, as the case may be, hope that 2009 will bring less death, destruction, wrecked lives, victims of crime and perhaps a little more guilt, remorse, consequences for actions, much better tolerance of others within our society and a few less statistical targets to how well every is supposed to be doing.
Don’t hold your breath.
