Friday 25th December 2020


Good morning all, so it is official, today is a white Christmas! The Met Office confirmed it. As we had snow in Humberside, Suffolk and snow settled in parts of Yorkshire.

I hope your Christmas is a merry and peaceful one. I will be on the phone and Zoom most of the morning, before starting a Photoshop course, which will take up most of the day.

It will be a strange Xmas (for all of us) but I will be making the most of the day, and, as it bright at the moment, a nice long walk with my camera in hand.

Have a wonderful day and MERRY CHRISTMAS!


From Sandra:

Thanks so much for your e-mail and a few things to look at and think about. Here is a photo I took a few weeks ago. Young people swathed in lights at Seven Dials.

I will be on my own too. Hoping that carols, virtual church, phone calls, a nice meal, a brisk walk and the Queen’s Speech and some TV will carry me through!

At least we’re all in this together – being alone!

Thank you to everyone who shared with me their favourite Christmas song, it was lovely to have received them and the story behind why. My personal favourite, which is really difficult to have narrowed down to one, will have to be ‘Last Christmas’ by Wham! It brings back memories of my teenage days and watching the video on MTV with friends.

From Maddy:

Emma is delivering a free Boxing Day session for anyone who’s plans have had to change, are at home on their own, or could do with some festive cheer.

Boxing Day (Saturday 26th) from 10:00-10:40am

It will be a gentle mixed-style session open to all and while it will be uplifting music, she’s not planning to make it particularly festive themed in case anyone doesn’t feel Christmassy at the moment!
