The ‘better times’ I forecast in my November blog were postponed by the ongoing Covid restrictions, which meant that we had to abandon our plans of spending new year with family and friends in the UK. But we didn’t let this get us down for long. We might not have been able to see our UK family, but our extended, blended tribe of families were all here and ready to celebrate the end of the year and the season of goodwill.
