There are two subjects in my head because I tackled them both today, reluctantly at first but once I’d started there was no stopping me and the task was executed with brutal efficiency.

Well, have you taken them all down and had a massive clear up yet? I can’t tell you how glad I was about 2 weeks into the festive season that I’d faked it – no droopy balding trees with needles appearing in the strangest places. When de-Christmasing took place all I had to do was fold up 2 trees, pop them back in their boxes and hold the ladder while Mark dragged them up into the loft. To continue reading…

Hello, It’s years since I’ve said this and meant it. I’m enjoying and looking forward to Christmas this year – and the reason? Because for the first time it doesn’t feel like a greed fest. Due to the pandemic, we’ve stared our mortality in the face, been forced to reassess our priorities and collectively come to the conclusion that the biggest presents under the tree are relationships and human kindness. Also don’t forget that Baby Jesus wasn’t actually born on…

Hope you’ve had a good week, I’ve been beavering away but, like all of us, crossing the days off until we’re allowed “Out Out” – a phrase my 90-year-old mum used the other day to prove she’s up to date with street talk! To continue reading click here.…

I can’t believe how many people – including myself – have said, “lets get those decorations up a little earlier than usual” – partly because some of us have a little extra time on our hands, but also because there’s nothing like a few baubles to put that childlike smile on our little faces and lift our spirits.

I said last week I wouldn’t moan so I won’t, even though it’s taking my complete reserve of resolve not to as I’m a total anti- lockdowner. That on one side (she says with a high- pitched voice and pursed lips), let’s get on with Christmas preparations as best we can, to keep ourselves sane in this crazy world.

During our weekly chit-chat, Editor Stuart asked me to give you a few Christmas tips. Well, I’m your girl for that task, as under my writing belt I have my book The Perfect Christmas which is awash with tips on how to survive and relish the festive season. So this week, next and all the others until the big day, you’ll get a little nugget from me. To continue reading click here. …

I have a confession to make… this weekend, wooed by discounts and offers, I pulled out my Christmas list and hit “Add To Basket”. I know, I know, I always say savour the seasons, and I can’t bear to look at Christmas until the last sparkler has fizzed out on bonfire night, but this year is going to be different, and rules will be broken and rules will be made.

Well I had a rubbish week for two reasons. One, I had the back window of my car smashed in by thieves who then got into my boot and took a loved Mulberry holdall. Nothing in it of immediate use to them like money, laptop, iPad or phone – just personal stuff like make-up, hairdryer, brushes, notebook and a jacket. In fact the damage to fix the vandalism was more costly than the haul. To continue reading click here. …
