Issue 37; Editorial 23rd December 2020

It is that time of year once more, which normally involves a social calendar that is full of parties, dinners and drinks, alongside the annual rushing around to see family.  As we know this is unlikely to be the case, I for one have no social engagements to attend.  It is a very different festive season, but one we should all make the most of. From gift giving to seeing who we can safely, it is down to us to make the most of what has been given.

This issue is a gift issue without being about gifts, it is about items that we want, have or think of.  It is not about money, it is not about decadence.  I just hope you see the point of my non gift guide, gift guide.

I would like to thank all of you for reading my articles whether you have just stumbled upon them today or you have been a loyal reader for some time. With a few changes this year it is great to see the numbers, but you are more than just a number.

Wishing you a very Merry Holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
