Well, it’s that time of year again! The TV schedules are groaning with the old classics, the larder is full of more food than seven people can possibly eat, the mince pies are cooked, the cake decorated, and I’m trying to figure out the precise nature of the giftwrapped packages under the tree… Wherever you are, I hope you’re settling in for a day of fine food, time with family or luxurious self-indulgence, depending on your preferences.
I hope that everyone who reads this has a very Merry Christmas and wish you all happiness, good health and success in 2014. Thank you all so much for reading and commenting this year, and for your emails and recommendations. I’ve made some great friends over the past twelve months and have even had the chance to spend an afternoon with Isi, rifling through London’s bookshops. It has been a fantastic year and I can’t wait for many more bookish discussions and discoveries in the New Year in company with all of you.
However you choose to spend the holidays, I hope you have a wonderful relaxing break.
