This year at, we decided to start the end of the year a little early. We booked a table on the 24th November and met for a festive lunch. It feels special to meet in person, to realise how much taller or shorter a new colleague is or to hug people we have not seen for months. There is no question that the (zoom) distance has made our hearts grow fonder.

Changing leaf colour. The Transition to Autumn

No end-of-year gathering is complete without bubbles, chocolate and the exchange of presents. In our case, we each received the gift of a storybook that felt just right. Regardless of where you are in the world over the holiday period, we wish you the joy of a good book, ideally one with pictures! Below are the ones we shared with each other. We hope our ‘Best suited to’ line helps you to select one for yourself or for someone special and, if you discover others along the way, please share them with us.
