As the year lurches to a close, it’s time for me to look forward, and to wish the best for the celebrations to come, and for the whole damn year that follows, to my chosen people:

My family, nearest and dearest. They know who they are.

My circle of friends; the Gullane posse and the L’Escala crew.

My global army of readers, to whom I add my deepest thanks for your faith and your loyalty.

My correspondents, through this blog and through Facebook. Your praise is cherished and your feedback invaluable.

Eddie, Junette, Paul and all at the agency.

Martin Fletcher, my long-serving, long-suffering editor.

All the people at Headline Towers in Euston Road, and their Commonwealth colleagues.

Ryan Giggs, for allowing me to cling to the hope that  I might yet make a successful comeback to the Thursday Legends.

Every single person in Edinburgh Royal Infirmary  who has been involved in the care and treatment of my lovely wife Eileen, during her health hiccups this year, and to Alannah and the others who kept me ticking over.

    And a good one to you and yours – albeit an hour earlier than those of us at Gullane Golf Club this evening!

      Gracias; I know where I’d rather be. We are going to the most expensive Cena de Nocheviejo in town, just the two of us, since our family have accepted another invitation. We will be able to walk home, though. One thing you will not be doing; swallowing a grape with every stroke of midnight. Local custom.
