I WISH to thank all my friends and neighbours for all the gifts and the 42 Christmas cards received.

My thanks go to two Portuguese families who invited me into their homes for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I was treated like a VIP: their hospitality and kindness were absolutely brilliant and I will never forget.

Thanks also to the staff of the Windmill Bakery who presented me with a lovely iced Christmas cake.

Not forgetting my dear friend Hayley, of West Avenue, Ramsey, who once again cooked a wonderful Christmas dinner for me.

The hospitality, kindness and gifts from all my friends made me have a very happy Christmas.
