I’m debating whether to ignore COVID-19, or to include it in my introduction. After all, there’s more to life than a global pandemic. In fact, I’ve become so used to our new world, that I feel quite naked when I’m not wearing a mask, and my hands have never been as clean. As with so much in life, it’s all about trying to find a balance, keeping safe, but also finding enjoyment in life whenever we can. Hopefully, we’ve managed to strike the right note with this issue, with a blend of inspiring and even glamorous features about homes and interiors.
With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve given food and wine a starring role, and why not? If ever there were a Christmas that we need to take pleasure in food, while also spreading socially-distanced joy to our friends and family, this has to be it! And, talking of food and spreading joy, we’d love you to nominate a person that you believe deserves to be given a Christmas hamper from Southsea Deli – see p.43.
There’s also a chance to win a book by the amazing Southsea children’s book author & illustrator Neal Layton p.25.
Let’s enjoy every remaining day of 2020 and look forward to a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
