The highlight of my school career was my singing solo as a little lamb, aged 10, in the school nativity show. Four lines to sing about the Baby Jesus wearing a pair of white woolly tights and a white jumper that didn’t quite come over my bum.  And a lamb…

Yesterday saw me sobbing down the phone uttering the phrase. But it’s Christmas… The season of goodwill, family, friends and love.  A chance to catch up with loved ones, both near and far.  And for us?  The start of a holiday of a lifetime. Way back when…
