Rough and raw Ollie. There's an air of resignation in Jimmy's expression .... Christmas is going to be nothing special again. The single catchlight in his eye brings this shot alive.

AND MERRY XMAS TO YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!! Smile

Jimmy looks much calmer in this image, Ollie. Once again Adrian has said the great words for me.
