Christmas is on its way at last . . .

Well, I've finished work now. Don't care any more!

There are trees to be decorated and shops to be shopped in, two large cakes to be iced, mince-pies to be made, presents to be wrapped.

And My Boy's String Orchestra Christmas Concert to go to at 4, which is always just the loveliest way to get Christmas off to a warm and glowing start - a hundred young musicians aged 6 to 16 spend the day learning and rehearsing an ambitious programme of seasonal music and then perform it to the delight of their families. Tissues to hand - pride, joy and laughter.

For anyone with time to sit down with a cup of coffee (that's what I'm doing right now - psyching myself up before entering the fray!), here are the final movements of Corelli's lovely Christmas Concerto.

Hmmm - I'm still editing. A result of one of those 'Could you just . . . ' requests that always come in just as one is about to shut up shop. Oh well, must look after the clients. Season of good will and all that.

Enjoy the concert! And a very happy Christmas and a wonderful 2008 to you and your family. Can't wait to see mine on Sunday.
