Writing this column hours ahead of the Christmas beanfeast is a bit strange but then, our deadlines are all over the shop this week and next with Christmas and New Year falling in midweek.

It’s always a bit odd batting back and forth between work and play during the festive season but for some reason it seems odder than ever this year.

Although I have every intention of enjoying my turkey and wee glass or two of vino rosso, I’m mindful that along with the rest of our little team, we’re back inharness on Friday with only two and a half days to put out next week’s edition.

Ever had the feeling some unpaid weekend overtime is likely to intervene?
