It really isn’t the year for licking envelopes, and this is an efficient way to reach you all...so colleagues, comrades, contacts, friends, listeners, viewers, readers, and online followers this is your festive Christmas card. Ta-da!

Created for me by Belfast-based designer and Donegal woman Tara Faulkner, it is A Holly Dolly Christmas ‘Simpsons Me’ tribute to Dolly Parton, who has been one of 2020’s standout heroes.

See: Dolly Parton helped fund vaccine

I know it can feel like there isn’t much to be jolly about but I’m trying to channel a wee bit of Dolly.

What a turbulent, wild, rollercoaster of a year.

Hopefully everything we have learned will be turned into action to make society more fair and equal. Action is most definitely needed.

I have been grateful for the chance March onwards has provided to pause, reflect and understand all that is truly important in life.

🌈Big, big thanks to the health service staff, and all the key workers, for what they have done, and continue to do, for us.

And thank you all for your continuing support of me.

Here’s to a better, brighter 2021 for everyone.

I trust you’re all on Santa’s nice list this year👀

Stay strong. Stay safe. And look out for each other.

Oh, and wash yer hawnds, please!
