Just to wish everyone out there in Virtual Land (or is it me that's virtual and you guys that are real..?) a very Merry Christmas.
I've not sent out cards this year, partly for eco reasons, but also because I didn't quite get it together. So, this is for everyone from me (it's another oil pastel illustration, similar to the Stars on Canvas one, but on yellow not black):
I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas have a lovely holiday. I'm hosting two separate Christmas Days this year: Dec 25th for friends and 27th for family. Mmmmm, that's LOTS of cooking, and I've not done anything in advance!! I'm sure it'll be alright on the night (I'm thinking calm thoughts)...
For what it's worth, my bit of wisdom for the holiday is: be as nice to one another as you can manage, and if for any reason you can't be with the ones you love, why not pass a little of that spare good will on to someone else out there who looks like they could use it?
