​‘Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!’

Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers. (1836)

… Driving Home for Christmas, Chris Rea.  (1986)

The years roll by.  The sentiment remains.

Happy Christmas one and all and may 2018 be kind!

This is Trish, kissing 2017 goodbye!
