‘Fairytale of New York’ playing into my headphones, I attempt to pull myself into the festive spirit. Sitting at home on Sunday, I started to manufacture Christmas cards – each one a bold explosion of colour. Each card in contrast to my own quieter, stiller mood.
Don’t get me wrong, I have many things to be thankful for this Christmas. Not least, time spent with friends and family and the comfort of friendships and relationships made and nurtured in the past year.
I just don’t like these short days of winter and hope that the coming weeks and 2015, like my festive greeting cards, will sizzle with colour and excitement!
