In the absence of addresses…

This is a virtual Christmas card. You have to imagine some glitter and a festive picture, because my flu addled brain is too fuzzy to create them.

I realised, when I was writing my real cards, that some of the people who have meant the most to me this year were being missed out.


Whilst I’ve been fortunate enough to have met some of my fellow bloggers and tweeters this year, there are still a lot of people out there that I now feel very connected to, and who have helped me indescribably in the past year….

And so, in the absence of postal addresses, I’d like to a wish you a very very happy Christmas here.

I know that, for some people, Christmas can be tricky. I remember, only too well, the loneliness and anxiety and disconnection that has characterised my Christmases for many many years – but this year, despite the past few months, has been infinitely better; and it has a huge amount to do with the support and learning that has gone on over here.

It has sent ripples through my world, and given me the courage to do things I could never have dreamed of.

I’m taking that courage into the New Year with me.

Thank you and all the very best for 2011.

    Agreed Melissa. Some of the nearest and dearest have addresses in cyberspace.
