Thanks to everyone - from the United States to Russia, Canada to China - and most of all from the wonderful island of Guernsey, who have visited my blog in the past year. To writers and readers everywhere, here's to a happy, peaceful and productive new year.

Trying to get into the mood for writing my Christmas cards this afternoon I put away my laptop and pondered on the season of 'good will' and what, ultimately it's all about. Just then a text arrived on my phone with a photo of my two-year-old grandaughter, Mille Grace, in her nursery school nativity play. My heart melted. Christmas is about little children - their dreams, their beliefs, their future. The adult world is a frightening place where our little ones will one day belong. So let them sing 'Jesus little ones are we', or as my own young daughter once said ' Jesus wants a little wee. ' Let them dress up, dance and sing while they still believe in Santa. The New Year - and their futures - will all too soon be here.
