Wishing you all a happy time whatever you’re doing with continued thanks for stopping by. I count my blessings often for the comments and interactions that I receive across all my social channels – it’s the thing that keeps me on my toes and feeling connected and more importantly that it’s only a screen between us all.

If you want to stay connected on-line, comedian Sarah Millican (@sarahmillican75) runs the hashtag #joinin on Christmas day on Twitter and it’s full of fun and companionship in its 9th year.
