2018 has been a bit of a mixed bag for me, this year we said goodbye to one half of the pig pair Dobby and my parent’s cat Poppy headed off to rainbow bridge as well.

As we end this year I know that every day with Sally is an extra miracle and I will cherish this last Christmas with her. I almost didn’t get new Christmas images made this year and so I can only thank the person who came to my last minute rescue when I found out it was to be our last and made these beautiful ones for me.

I spoke in late November about why I find Christmas hard and I know I am not the only one for many different reasons.

So as I do every year I want to just list some numbers of helplines across the UK.

These are not all open 24/7 so please do check their websites for opening hours and remember my email is always open if you want a chat. I can’t promise I’ll email straight back, but I will ASAP.
