I didn't

Eddie Mair | 10:50 UK time, Monday, 13 November 2006

want a fuss - but thank you.

Nice comments from froggers (I actually typed friggers in error there, sorry) and I don't know WHAT to say to the Gossipmistress for that lovely card. Big Sister sent a wonderful booklet which is hard to describe but brilliantly executed. If I didn't think the technology would defeat me I would try to find a way of posting it. Just brilliant - thank you. it must have taken you ages. We all had a good laugh in the office.

And as for YOU Jonnie.....

Most kind. I am not worthy. But thank you.

    Ahh Eddie, now we understand the delay (friggers indeed! - but you must sometimes think of us in those terms ....)

    So glad you liked the offering. It started as a card and just grew - A bit like the Blog, eh? I enjoyed the joke, and am glad you did, too. Hope I didn't misunderstand the new postage rules and that no excess postage incurred ...

    I'm sure all regulars will be hoping, like me, that you had a good weekend.

    Note to the PM team: Be very nice to Lord Mair today, too!

    (N.B. tried posting this and got some moveable platform - made me feel all wobbly!........ What's this all about? Argh, technology - I'm with you on that, Eddie!)

    Now, Eddie, don't be coy. Just what DID Gossipmistress and Jonnie do?

    Well Eddie,

    I did have to think long and hard about what you'd like and after last weeks kerfuffle decided that this could be useful for both business and pleasure.

    It seems to have cleaned up okay, but will always be useful in the loo of, course.

    yes, Eddie a very happy birthday from me too for yesterday as it were. Would have sent a card but post up here severely compromised by the weather just now - take my advice, never move to an island paradise - unless it's in the Indian Ocean. Maybe next year I'll manage a card.

    Were these the Faye Dunaway teeth that seem to have got our Eddie all agog?

    OnTheLedge (2) - he's exagerrating - it was not as exciting as all that. Perhaps a bit raunchy..... but I have to confess that it was a card I 'had in' and not bought specially - but don't tell Dr Muir!
