Editors Noticeboard Dear Reader It’s Christmas time already! How exciting. I love Christmas and to be honest, the sparkle of Christmas has been rekindled since I had my two beautiful children. Seeing Christmas through my children’s eyes has certainly made me feel the magic again – the beautifully decorated trees, the joy of buying gifts for my loved ones, the excitement of receiving gifts, and, of course, another excuse to eat a lot of delicious food. Christmas time is always so busy but let’s make sure we enjoy it! Please support all our wonderful advertisers and consider what they have to offer this Christmas and beyond – fantastic Christmas gift ideas and events, family and household services and also heaps of activity programs and classes to keep your children busy in the new year. We extend sincere and warm wishes to all our advertisers, authors, readers and our Kids Corner kids – we thank you for your support and contributions in 2013. We look forward to bringing you more in the New Year. We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year. We hope you enjoy this issue. Until next time...
