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.
