After a little Christmas break WinningWeekends is back. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas? Did santa bring you or your family anything unusual or interesting? For my lads it was all about the Lego, they love the stuff. Then enough toiletries to swim in, more chocolate than we should have consumed and the classic slippers and pjs. For me by far the best surprise of the last month was finding Doris dog, that adorable little face! I am against pets as gifts, but Doris is here as family – not a possession. Or as the Dogs Trust say, a dog is for life not just for Christmas.
