Money is a worry this year. So please don’t fall into the trap of believing December must be all matching pyjamas, expensive soirées, perfect festive tableware and gifts galore. I believe Christmas is a feeling, not a season. An open door to a house full of love, is far more wonderful than an over-stretched host, frayed at the edges with worry, exhaustion and overwhelm. Keep your gifts simple, thoughtful and kind. Buy from small businesses where you can. Pop one much-needed item into the food-bank collections as you shop. That circle of goodwill is important right now. It will come back to you, I promise. We can ride this wave the old-fashioned way, together, with kindness. And find joy in the moments, because that’s where she lives.
