We are away for Christmas and my house is a building site so I don’t have the cosy festive scene to post.

And I’m well aware that this low budget vid of me in spin on a Sunday morning is not that interesting and let’s be honest slightly on the #smug side. But bear with.... In an attempt to stick to at least some basic Christmas traditions, I watched Love Actually last night and then trawled YouTube for interviews with Richard Curtis - I don’t care what RC is talking about, everything he says is wonderful. In amongst so many gems about writing and his inspirations and how @emmafreud made him rewrite Four Weddings 19 times until it was right and just exactly how he came up with wrote line in Notting Hill (“I’m just a girl”) he also said this; Love yourself, even if you think that 99% of what you’ve done is rubbish, 1% is brilliant. It makes me think about all those things we want to achieve, from long standing career goals to finding the perfect present or having just one harmonious afternoon with the family all happy and festive rather than harassed and falling out. I hate spin and I think I’m rubbish at it. But I go and I turn those wheels and that’s the bit I’m going to focus on. Try doing the same this Christmas, be more Curtis and Love Yourself actually.
