Well, everyone else gives annual awards, so why shouldn't we?
IDEAL HOME OF THE YEAR AWARD goes to our new house in Stirchley, where we finally moved in January. Its main feature is that no-one knows it's there, being cunningly tucked away behind some other houses.
MOST AMBITIOUS TARGET MET: Moving house, then unpacking 53 boxes in 2 weeks
MOST AMBITIOUS TARGET NOT MET: Moving house, then getting everything in perfect order within a year
WORST TIMING OF THE YEAR AWARD goes to Adrian, for being born during a vital World Cup match
YOUNG SCIENTIST OF THE YEAR: Martin, for research into connectivity of jigsaw puzzle pieces, rate of descent down slides, effect of pressing the TV handset buttons, and many other fields
EGON RONAY 24-HOUR CATERING SERVICE OF THE YEAR: That provided by Miriam, especially to Adrian, who is always hungry!
POET OF THE YEAR: Adrian, for this cultural offering:
YOUNG NATURALIST OF THE YEAR: Martin, for his ability to reproduce animal noises (but why does he still think a sheep says "neigh"??)
BOOKWORM OF THE YEAR: A tie between Miriam, who has read through most of Stirchley library while feeding Adrian, and Martin, whose greatest pleasure is to have someone read to him
TV ADDICT OF THE YEAR: Miriam, who has trained her body clock to tell her when Countdown is on
MUSICIAN OF THE YEAR: Phil, who has usurped Miriam's place at the piano in the Church Centre music group while she has had her hands full with babies
ENVIRONMENTAL CATASTROPHE OF THE YEAR: Visiting Anglesey and discovering that "Puffin Island" no longer has any puffins because over-fishing has made them virtually extinct
EXHAUSTED PARENTS OF THE YEAR AWARD: Guess who, but the award has to be shared with millions of others!
We all want to wish you a toyful - sorry, joyful Christmas and a very happy New Year.
