I apologise for the lateness of this post–I’ve been in bed, in the grips of a Theraflu coma, all day! The focus has been on sleep, eating plenty of spicy food (!) & staying hydrated, in an effort to be shipshape & Bristol fashion for tomorrow night’s revelry! I have to say, that Theraflu stuff tastes vile but it sure does the trick…

Isn’t it so crazy how quickly the end of the year is upon us? I swear that as you get older, the years become shorter. This has been an incredible year for me, & here are some of the little things that have lit up my heart over the past couple of weeks.
