The greatest gift of all

Wow – a new year! I have to say that Christmas and New Year are already a distant blur. It was a relatively relaxed xmas, but far too many presents exchanged and having to find room for more ‘stuff’. (Although that’s always a great excuse for me to do another declutter).

The best gift I received (except for time with my boys) was a duck. Yes, you read correctly, a duck. It was in an envelope and purchased through Oxfam. It was the gift of a duck to be given on my behalf to help create a better future for someone less fortunate. I thought it was the coolest idea and would strongly recommend this for someone you care about and as a perfect gift for the person who has everything. You can find out more by visiting

I hope everyone has a prosperous and organised 2010!
