I’m Single at Christmas – It’s Not So Bad

I was lying in bed the other night and it occurred to me that this is my fifth Christmas as a single woman. I have mixed feelings and thoughts about it, so here I am, virtually sharing my innermost feelings with you, strangers on the internet!   Now I’ve umm’ed and aah’ed about talking about […]
