You’re never too old or too cool to get your photo taken with Santa

Forgive me readers for I have been slack – or busy depending on whether you want an excuse or a mea culpa. It has been over a week since my last blog … It’s not that I haven’t got things to write about, but I have been very busy. Christmas can be like that. ‘Tis …
