I can't believe that it's 2012 already. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas - I spent it with all of the people I love the best in the world; Mummy and Daddy, Aunt Charlotte and Uncle Lawrence, Granny, Mrs Oliver, Shilly, Max, Mr and Mrs Greening, Heinrich and Lily and of course Poppy and Jasper. Daisy and Granny Bert were there too - and Granny was dancing with Daddy to funny old Christmas tunes. The only people who were missing were Millie and Jacinta but they spent Christmas with their families and we did catch up for New Year. I've recently had the most amazing adventure in New York City and in less than a month you'll be able to read all about it, when Alice-Miranda In New York hits the shops. My best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey is busy making arrangements for a very exciting launch - so please come back again soon for all the details. I can't wait, because later this year the Winchesterfield Village Show is on and we're all hoping that Miss Grimm might allow the girls to go for the first time ever - that would be fantastic.
See you soon.
Lots of love,
- Jacqueline Harvey
