By the time you read this I will be playing in the snow with two of my grandchildren who, new to Canada, have not seen snow before. Last time I was in Canada I had a photo of me in the snow barefoot and in my rugby shorts. Thank goodness I have grown out of doing such silly things! We will be enjoying all the decorated houses which show up to well when darkness descends so early. You will all be celebrating the silly season in lovely sunlight and warmth and we wish you all well over the festive season.
