Just a wee note from Dublin, Ireland to wish you all a very happy Christmas wherever you are in the world tonight.
We have a candle lighting outside our window for all our loved ones, especially my daughter Claire and her husband Mike who are in Melbourne and my daughter-in-law Shan and her MaMa who are in Beijing. And we are counting our blessings in having our son Shane here with us for a few days.
Thinking of everyone who is separated by distance from those they love most tonight and may be feeling a little longing for home and family. Also sparing a special thought for those who lost ones they love in the past year or are going through a difficult time.
If this is one of those special Christmases when you are all together, enjoy every moment of it.
Whatever changes last year brought and the new year may bring, I hope you have a peaceful and restful time this Christmas.
PS. Back soon after Christmas with some ideas for using up turkey leftovers!
