I’m going to sign off for a few days – I need some Netflix, lounging in bed and a few glasses of rose: actually, all three at once sounds pretty damn good now I’ve typed them out! Thank you for another fantastic year of comments and interaction – I can’t tell you how much I love your feedback and chats – and of course, for reading. I think I look like I’ve been retouched a la Joan Collins but it is in fact a still from a video on a snow day (when that white surround will give you the best skin you’ve ever had!) so I’ve had a double filter :-). Have a happy time if possible – I know that it’s not always easy, and if it’s not, have a peaceful time with plenty self care moments dropped in.

Merry Xmas and thank you too, Jane, for lovely time we have reading and chatting with you! Something friendly, warm and girly is more than welcome always, the darker times the more so!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. I get a tremendous amount of information and pleasure from reading your blog and the comments from other readers. Now I’ve got to replace a broken hinge on the downstairs loo before Christmas Day guests arrive. May need a double brandy after that.
Thank you so much – good luck with the screwdriver (and the brandy ;-))

Merry Christmas Jane! (And happy birthday in a few days time!)
Happy Christmas Jane and I hope you get your Netflix, bed and rosé. I must mention that I bought one of the Origins gift sets you recommended last year (not in my usual price range) and the mega mushroom treatment lotion has been amazing. So much so that I have bought myself another bottle (M&S now stock Origins at a decent price). I love reading and value your opinions on products. Looking forward to more of the same in 2023.
thank you so much 🙂
Merry Xmas ! Good health and happiness! big hugs from Greece!
Merry Christmas! Enjoy the time with your family and friends.
I’m sad I missed this post and didn’t manage to wish you merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2023 at the right time – the flu bug raged through our house as it did so many others. I hope you don’t mind me wishing you the best for 2023 now, even though it’s a bit late! Thank you for all your hard work so far and I really look forward to your posts in 2023.
Karyn! So sorry to hear that – Mr BBB waited until new year’s eve before coming down with it and he is only just on the mend so you have my sympathies! Happy new year to you and your family too 🙂
