Apart from my Saturday promotional blog tomorrow and a guest blogger’s article on Monday 18th, I’m going to have a couple of weeks off blogging as I’ll be busy over Christmas and then Sam and I will be spending a few days on the Isle of Wight (no Internet in our holiday home as yet).  So I’ll say this to all my lovely blogging friends:

I WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR. SEE YOU IN 2018!!
