Hello everyone, and Merry Christmas! It feels like a bit of a ‘bah humbug’ Christmas this year after everything we’ve been through. Nevertheless, here we are on ‘the big day’.

Obviously, Christmas is a traditionally a religious holiday. It’s all about stopping for a while, cooking some treats and being more thoughtful to others. Even if you are not religious, it is good for the soul to sit quietly, light a candle and have a thoughtful moment in amongst all the commercial madness.

It is especially hard to be on your own at Christmas, and so many people who are normally with family will also be on their own this year. Maybe this ‘lockdown Christmas’ will make society more empathetic towards the plight of single people? We can only hope.

I know how hard it is to be on your own; I’ve been there in the past, and I remember vividly how it felt. It’s these experiences from my past that drive me to help you. When I do help a couple to come together, it’s just such a wonderful feeling, and my job becomes the best job in the world.

I hope that in 2021 we’ll have a much more fulfilling year, and a lovely ‘proper’ Christmas at the end of it.
