There were mixed opinions last night about the height of the fiscal cliff (or the depth, depending on the point of view) and its effect on Christment present budgets, but there were also lots of happy faces, some I hadn't seen for a very long time.  But time flies when you're having fun and it was soon time for most of us to trudge off into the rainy night to avoid missing the last train home.

I don't think I even had time to say Merry Christmas to everyone so I'll do that now.

I hope to see some of you again at the next meet-up on 17 January to wish you Happy New Year.
