Merry Christmas!

It would be rude of me to miss wishing all my wonderful followers a Merry Christmas!

It’s been a really exciting year with lots going on, some more positive than other. On Christmas Eve and Day last year I decided to go, as I normally would, for a walk on one of my local patches for an hour or so. I don’t think it’s something everyone would consider as it’s that idea of staying at home with family, food, presents etc on the big days. But going for a walk was a great way to escape from the hustle and bustle. As well as this, it was so quiet. Hardly a soul about.

Thinking about it, nature is a big part of Christmas time. The robins on our Christmas cards, the trees in our homes, the evergreen wreaths of ivy and holly, how we rely on the weather to bring us that Christmas spirit and also most of the verses in The Twelve Days of Christmas; partridges, turtle doves, calling birds and swimming swans.

I’m really looking forward to 2016 after meeting so many brilliant people this year who have inspired me, given me superb opportunities, advice and so much more.

Merry Christmas and, if I don’t get the chance to do a blog before, Happy New Year!
