Merry Christmas from TheEye

Referendum Gate, Gibraltar ,2011

Gibraltar isn’t exactly the most festive place when it comes to Christmas. There are no chestnuts roasting on an open fire, no Jack Frost nipping on your nose. There were yuletide carols sung by the choir from the local Convent last week on Irish Steps but even at noon today the weather was mild enough to have lunch outside in shirt-sleeves.

Regular readers will know that TheEye hasn’t had an easy second half to the year. My sincere thanks go to those who have emailed, contacted, offered support and help and done all of those things which make the world go around when things are a bit not so good. Especial thanks to fellow Eye contributors and friends St Crispin, Max and David Vance without whom the last few months would have been much more difficult. And others too – unmentioned here to spare blushes but you know who you are and I appreciate it.

The New Year will see new domestic arrangements for TheEye which will feature amongst other things teh interwebs at home for the first time in 4 months. Plus not living out of suitcases. So blogging will pick up again. Snatching wifi from coffee shops just isn’t the same…

TheEye and all of our contributors here wish you all a fantastic Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
