Good morning, O ’Noisers, and welcome to the light of another brand new... Monday. Ugh. The very last Monday of the year. Sadly, I hear the new year will also come laden with Mondays, so that point is kind of moot. But hey - some of us will have a short week at least, in which we will not catch up on our sleep one bit because of all the folks who like making things go boom.

Hope everyone got there and back again okay and had lovely adventures with prezzies and roast beasts. Please feel free to regale us with envy-inducing stories of killer toys and magnificent pies. Or better yet, show us in the gallery so we can drool on our screens and short them out, then insist we need new ones if we didn’t get them last week.
