    1. Thank and you too have a lovely Christmas. You are most welcome, I have a short video scheduled in the next few days of my 2021 highlights (yes I managed a few!) How lovely to get a macro lens, one of my favourite pieces of kit!

  2. Happy Christmas Sue! We’re off to Borough Market in London to help with our charity’s surplus food distribution, then home for a good but light dinner and a G&T in front of the TV. That’s my Christmas Eve 🙂
