I know it's a little early, especially with magazine schedules being what they are, but the festive season is soon upon us, so let me wish you all the very best for Christmas. I always find it a strange time of year. The holiday period is either a welcome relief and a time to unwind, catch up with friends and loved ones, a time when it's all too easy to overeat, or it is a time of year that people do not enjoy and avoid as much as possible.
I must admit I walk a tightrope between the two. I want the hustle and bustle of catching up with friends and family on Christmas and Boxing days, but then I want it all over so I can do other things on the days I take off over the festive period. Going fishing and having workshop time spring to mind. I am sure I am not alone in this.
