“Even though this Christmas
We must spend apart,
You're still right here with me,
Because I keep you in my heart.
So picture me there beside you
Sitting by the twinkling tree,
And rest assured next Christmas
You'll truly be spending it with me.”

Absolutely spoilt again this year by the Wednesday crew. Proud of all you have each accomplished artistically this year. Will treasure the apron and attempt not to drop as much paint on it as my regular clothes. Merry Christmas troops! ... See MoreSee Less
