Merry Christmas!

I know this has been a challenging year and we are facing a Christmas unlike any other. My heart goes out to those who will spend it alone this year. Figures released by Press suggest the number of people spending Christmas alone (UK) due to the pandemic has doubled this year, to 1.7 million.

Let’s Keep each other safe and warm in communication.

I am taking a few days offline but will be back before the New Year! Stay Safe and have a Merry Christmas, make the best of it you can.


Community Christmas provides a free online directory of local festive ‘acts of kindness’ taking place across the UK, which are open to local older, vulnerable people who would otherwise be spending Christmas Day alone. https://www.reengage.org.uk/support-us/community-christmas/


Please note this final article was pre-pandemic and some options are no longer valid, having said that it is a great list of fun things to do if you are alone for Christmas.





Merry Christmas Eve – Happy Holidays to You All!


I am so excited! I still have so much to do today – and in a few hours I will be celebrating Christmas Eve with friends (despite the cold!)

I wish you all a pleasant Christmas and hope that you get to spend it with people you love.
Peace and warm wishes to you all.

I will be offline over the Christmas Period but will reply to comments as soon as possible after that.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

I was in such a hurry to post this Christmas message, I failed to make it public and it saved as draft. I did wonder why it hadn’t appeared with the information bar….

It is now Christmas Day and I have been awake since 5 a.m – in that 1.5 hrs I have been awake for I could have done the cleaning and tidying. Instead I have been on the phone reading 100s of Christmas messages!

I look forward to sharing my Christmas with you after Christmas.

This is me signing off now. I made a Christmas promise to Mr G.

Merry Christmas, sparkles and hope x

Merry Christmas!


We are just 5 days away from CHRISTMAS!santa snow elf 2

And I am excited as a younger version of myself would have been! Despite being full of winter cold!)

Today Mr G & I are both booked off work to do our FINAL Christmas shop… starting locally in the shops, then later driving to the supermarket for the BIG Christmas Food Shop!

Then I am going to spend the rest of the day tucked up warm – in an attempt to get rid of the cold that has been with me most of the week. joy

I haven’t done much writing since making my submissions earlier in the week. I have to look at the action plan and catch up a bit. Monday has been allocated as a wrapping presents and writing day. keep calm

I will probably post again before Christmas – I am sure it is a busy time for all of us, but I will not be posting as much as usual over the next 5 days.

Have a Merry Time preparing for your festive celebrations!
