But it is also Christmas.
So take a breather and let me tell you a story about London, trains, love and loss, and how small acts of kindness matter.
I'm going to tell you about the voice at Embankment Tube station.
She kept asking them where the voice had gone. They weren't sure what she meant.
The voice, she said. The man who says 'Mind the Gap'
The staff asked her if she was okay.
"That voice," she explained, "was my husband."
And Oswald had died in 2007.
Sometimes, when it hurt too much, she explained, she'd just sit on the platform at Embankment and listen to the announcements for a bit longer.
To everyone else, it had just been another announcement. To HER it had been the ghost of the man she still loved.
And now even that had gone.
Margaret knew this was unlikely, but thanked them anyway.
And over the speakers she heard a familiar voice. The voice of a man she had loved so much, and never thought she'd hear again.
"Mind the Gap" Said Oswald Laurence.
And they'd all realised that with luck, just this once, for one person, they might be able to make that happen.
And together they made Oswald talk again.
Merry Christmas everyone.
