Yes, we'll all be in Wales for Christmas this year, and we've been invited to join Henry, the eighteenth Duke of Chellingworth, and his happily pregnant wife, the duchess Stephanie, for a festive meal at Chellingworth Hall, immediately after the Christmas morning service at St David's church in the village of Anwen-by-Wye.
Carol Hill will, of course, bring baby Albert, and her husband David, while Tudor Evans - landlord at the Lamb and Flag pub in the village - will join Annie Parker as her guest. Alexander Bright will be joining Christine Wilson-Smythe and her parents - the Viscount and Viscountess - will also be attending. I'll be be attending alone, though I'll probably spend most of my time chatting with my friend and "house-mate" Althea, the dowager duchess. It should be a jolly time.
Here, in Wales, there are lots of Christmas traditions, and I believe there'll be a few marked in the village. I'm a Scot, so for us Hogmanay (New Year's Eve) is a bigger event, but I'll fall in with whatever they want me to do here...just as long as I can have the odd wee dram, I'll be happy.
