Thank you so much to everyone who has engaged with this blog during the year – it is such a joy and a pleasure to have spent virtual time with you all.  And thank you too for all your wise, funny and thoughtful posts, which I have very much enjoyed reading.

I send my warmest wishes to you all for a peaceful and enjoyable festive season, and every happiness in 2017.

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” ~ Bob Hope
