YouTube have blocked the video in some countries because of the music used, if you can’t see it try this:

Have a lovely day tomorrow everyone – or today, if you’re one of our Australian or New Zealand friends!

I just want to thank you all for keeping me company on this amazing journey. So many highs, so many lows, it’s been a bumpy ride. But on the bad days we’ve raised each others’ spirits, and I can never ever thank you enough for that.

You make me think, learn, smile, laugh, cry, the whole lot, I’m richer for knowing you all. You’re just the very loveliest bunch of people.

My heart goes out to those of you who have lost loved ones in the last year or two, I know Christmas will be desperately lonely for you. If you ever need a friend, drop in here – you’ll always find support. And take good care of yourself.

Wishing you all good health and happiness, we’ve a busy year ahead, I need you fired up and ready to go – okay?

Love ya.
