Blessings of the festive season to you, one and all, whatever you celebrate this time of year.
I’m taking a proper break for once, so no blogging, no social media (well, ok, maybe sharing photos of the #HerbGerbs on Instagram as they open their Yule gifts), and more resting.
I have lots of ideas for the new year, and will continue my regular Sunday and Wednesday posts from January onwards.
But for now, the winter holidays beckon. Frosty walks through the fields, visits to museums, good beer by pub fires, hiding from the rain with books, blankets and tea, spending time with chosen family, human and non-human alike.
May the renewal of the sun at the Winter Solstice bring a renewal of hope to all our hearts for the new year, and new decade, to come.
See you next year!
