Firstly I just want to say a very big thank you to all of you who have read and commented on my blog over the past year. Your comments have been kind, thoughtful, complimentary and amusing, and I also love the way you sometimes send messages to each other too. Hopefully we will have another great year of communication in 2011.
I wonder if any of you were watching the Tiffany Style lighting show I presented last Friday on QVC? Most of you will know I love these colourful lights and have 22 at last count! However I had forgotten to get out my Santa light when we put up the Christmas decorations and doing the show reminded me.
One slight problem, I couldn't remember where I had put it in the move! I knew I had put it somewhere in readiness for Christmas, but where???? We searched high and low and eventually I had a 'light bulb' moment (quite literally) and found it in the games cupboard – obviously the thought process was that we only tend to play family board games at Christmas now that the children are older! Anyway he is now illuminating the hall and welcoming visitors!
Speaking of visitors, we have had a lot of the feathered variety since the cold weather started as I have been putting out plenty of crumbs for the birds. We have had 3 robins, which is apparently unusual as they are very territorial and only allow other birds into 'their' garden if there is no food around, blackbirds, sparrows and pigeons.
So don't throw your leftovers away this Christmas – pop them outside for our wildlife!
I truly hope that wherever you are, whoever you are with and whatever you are doing this Christmas, you are able to enjoy it. And I wish you all the best for a Happy and Healthy new year!
