Christmas Countdown — 1 day to go

Done all the Christmas shopping, put the turkey in the oven and peeled the sprouts?

4br

 

If you have then well done — it's more than the effort the 4BR Editor has done this year!

1 day to go and all that is left from us is to count the votes for the 4BR Awards (announced tomorrow), make sure we've bought loved ones their presents and paid off the carol singers not to bother us until next year.

To all our readers we wish you all a very happy Christmas and prosperous New Year. Hope you have enjoyed what we have tried to bring you this year — mistakes and all.

It's hard old work at times but we enjoy it and as someone once told us — it's better than a proper job.

Many thanks for all your support and encouragement (plus the odd disagreement) and we hope to do it all again, and more in 2008.

From all the lads at 4BR...
