Don't get me wrong, I take pleasure in all of my family. I am a guy with a small circle of friends and family, so everyone in my circle is important to me. But Nikki Dee has become a bright light in my life, both at Christmas and beyond. In the first photo, she is colouring in her new book with her new crayons on the floor as the family opens their gifts. The second photo was taken later in the day when I caught her in mid-bounce on the couch (which is something that she is not supposed to do).
Then there is my Cuppa, my companion of almost forty years who perpetually radiates joy and causes me to be a better person. I think these photos say a lot.
