EDITOR’S NOTICE BOARD

Monash Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! It is still a bit early for seasons greetings but you have probably picked up our magazine in early December. But does it matter? No!! It is our early greeting to all of you who have supported us through 2015. Thank you for choosing our magazine. Thank you for shopping locally. Thank you for sharing the information in the magazines with your friends and family! It has been a big year to us. We started this our first business in 2015. Kirill said he had never thought he would become an editor when we entered the publishing industry. Are you doing the job that you thought you would do? Are you planning to do something different next year? Don't be scared to dream big. From little things big things grow. Christmas is upon us, so are all the parties! Playgroup, kindergartens, libraries and more will have all sorts of fun parties for families. Of course our favourite Santa will be there, you can take photos with Santa and record memories. Some kids may cry in Santa's arms, but everybody loves a party. Are you hosting a party yourself? Woo.... that's one of the hardest things to do in my opinion. Probably just remember it doesn't need to be perfect, as long as everyone has a bit of giggle! Are you going away for holidays? We are going to Tokyo with Lilia for 18 days in December. We have been planning it for so long and really can't wait. After a whole year of hard work, I think we all deserve some rest. Destinations are not the most important factors; I think what is more important is who we spend the time with. Don’t you agree? Congratulations on the winners of Croc's PlayCentre Clayton's 10 times visit. Isabelle and Zhouzhou look fantastic in their Melbourne Cup Day outfits! Check their photos in our facebook page (and like us!). We are running competitions again for our special December/January issue. Please check page 7 for your chance to win. Please don't forget our next issue will come out at early February. Until then, let's all relax and pamper ourselves with fun, food and wine!!!!! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…

Thank you for taking Your Child into your home and please support local business Editor page photo courtesy - The Latent Image Photography www.facebook.com/YourChildinMonash p: 0425 301 986 e: info@yourchildinmonash.com.au w: www.yourchildinmonash.com.au
