When the first Christmas card dropped through the letter box last week I remembered that I had not been in contact with the person who sent it for nearly a year.  Doesn’t time fly! But it was a good reminder that it is worthwhile getting in touch with colleagues and friends that I have not seen or spoken to for ages, to thank them for their support or business during the last year.  We would not be where we are today without them.  Whilst I like prefer sending hand written cards, sometimes a quick email can mean just as much to the recipient. I have to remind myself its not the means of communication, but the message that is important!  So even if you are "snowed under" take a moment to express your appreciation at this time of year….
