Good morning! I thought I would pop in and wish you Happy New year! has 2017 been a happy year for you? the truth is that years contain everything, the highs and the lows, the ecstatic moments and the absolutely awful ones.
My year has been pretty much brilliant, my little business has gone from strength to strength. I have made friends and gathered more customers and we have had a blast.
I am sure you know that I am a huge fan of the mother of all drag artists RuPaul not only for his artistry but for his common sense advice – my favourite of which is that we should all find our tribe- the people with which we share values and goals and opinions. I am so lucky as I have most definitely found mine and they rock!!
It has not been a year without sadness, family members still facing health problems and my own health being a challenge have presented their all too familiar problems.
The loss of a little boy in our community and the continuing illness of a friends child make me angry and frustrated at the wickedness that is cancer.
I have just filed my tax return and I have increased my turnover by 56%. I couldn’t be prouder or more grateful for the support you all give me. I have huge plans for next year and hope that I can get out to fairs more often to see more of you in person.
This coming year will be a challenge for the Uk as a whole, I don’t think Brexit has worked out whichever way you voted. That is going to present its own set of a problems and it is in this atmosphere that we see the rise of extremism of every shape and colour. I hope that we can respect each other and resist the more hateful ideologies that are springing up.
So, in closing, my wish for us all is this – I think its a Buddhist prayer and I apologise if I have it wrong-
May you be safe
May you be happy
May you be free from harm
oh and may you find your tribe and love them as much as I love mine.
and a big lick from these nutters xxx
