We all love giving and receiving gifts. Though this year has been different (and that’s an understatement) at least we can still give even if it’s virtually.
The merry season is upon us, and for many, it could not have come quick enough. I know some of you are in lock-down and that sucks at this time of year (any time really). We all want to be with family and friends, sharing food, drinks, laughter, and love.
For those who can’t, I feel for you and hope you’ll be able to find new ways to connect with loved ones, even if it’s only through Zoom or FaceTime. It’s a reminder to all of what is important. Maybe this whole 2020 year has happened for us to take a more in-depth look inside. We don’t need possessions and wealth when instead, we have family love and our health.
On a brighter note, I’m giving you a Christmas gift. Read it at your leisure—a collection of brief, feel-good and romantic stories. A Loved-up Christmas is an easy festive read I hope you will enjoy.
That’s all from me for now.
Yours truly in love-stories, happiness and writing,

Christmas, Noel, Yuletide, Hanukkah, festive season, holiday, whatever you call it, or how you celebrate it, I send you the best wishes. I hope you enjoy, love, happiness, good health, good cheer, prosperity and peace. It’s a time where families come together to share food, presents and good times. But for others, it can be a lonely time. Think of your neighbours or friends who don’t have family nearby. Share some of the festive spirit with them. Compassion and kindness help make this time of year a celebration for everyone.
I’ll be sharing my Christmas with family. It will be our first Christmas living near our grandchildren, so this year it will be a priceless time. There will be too much food, ham galore, prawns on ice, beers and wine in the eskies, dessert in the fridge (for later and so they don’t melt) and Christmas decorations adorning the table. We’ll wear the mandatory cracker paper hat and tell the ‘dad jokes’ most of which aren’t funny (which makes it even funnier). Secret Santa gifts will be stollen and swapped (causing hilarious heated debates). We’ll play cricket in the neighbouring block, swim afterwards to cool off from the summer heat, drink some more, laugh lots and watch the kids unwrap their presents with squeals of delight. We’ll slather ourselves in sunscreen and insect repellant, reminisce on our year, talk over the top of each other, argue good-naturedly, laugh that we do, play games and love deeply. Family! I can’t wait.
And if you’ve been affected by fire or drought I hope the season brings you some respite and your 2020 is prosperous and filled with happiness and healing.
I’ll be updating you on some exciting Christmas news soon. A bargain book set will be coming soon.
