Happy Holidays to All! Have we got some exciting gifts and giveaways for you! First, there’s a special Christmas present for everyone. Scroll down to find out more. Meanwhile it’s all hustle and bustle as we prepare for the festive season. This is Pam’s first Christmas without her youngest, Alec, who has hightailed it to the French Alps to work as a chef in a ski resort – she’s drooling over the thought of some fabulous cuisine when he finally returns. In snowy Colorado, Lorraine has the usual thirty-odd friends (some odder than others) congregating for a big social Christmas dinner. Strangely, it’s our husbands who like to take over the stuffing and roasting of the traditional turkeys. Could it be they don’t trust us to get it right? Or that they love basking in the glowing accolades? Either way we’re not complaining.

Season‘s Greetings, One and All
When did Christmas start for you? In September, when the first decorations started to appear in garden centres and certain shops? In December, when postal deadlines loom? Or will it only finally happen on Christmas Eve, when the stress of juggling work, day-to-day family needs and shopping has almost become too much, but you can finally sit down with a glass of wine in the happy knowledge that everything is sorted?
Sometimes we lose sight of the reason for doing things. Christmas is a religious festival – in Scotland, when my parents were young (in the early 20th century), it wasn’t even a public holiday! But as our society

When I was fresh out of high school, my mother made an interesting observation about a friend of mine. ‘Trouble with Kathy,’ she said, ‘she’s just too perfect.’ Now Kathy was a truly lovely person, sort of girl who taught Sunday school, made friends with homeless people, considered a glass of wine a walk on the wild side and discovered all kinds of intimate details about people I’d known for years and never bothered to ask. And she was popular – I’ve no idea, in fact, why she was hanging out with me. But would I want her as a heroine? Maybe, if I was writing a certain kind of romance. Then again, possibly not.
