Although many of us have woken up with Christmas dreams in tatters, stay strong, love those around you, drink wine, eat After Eights, listen to the Pogues and it will all get better soon! Anything ordered up until midnight tonight will still make it before the big guy comes and the shop is open today 10 until 4pm! Have a great Sunday folks, Honey hugs being sent from HQ!
