Greatest Hits: Volume 24

Greatest Hits

Happy Sunday everyone!

Regular readers of this blog will notice that I’m about 24 hours late with my biweekly edition of Greatest Hits.

Well, as it happens, the Christmas Party season is upon us – and after the forced hiatus last year (combined with yet another impending lockdown), I’m determined to make the most of it.

I have long said that no one does Christmas like London does Christmas, even if makes for some relatively painful mornings.  But if there’s one thing I know, it’s that letting your hair down once in a while can do wonders for rejuvenation, motivation, and productivity!

Hopefully the rest of you are making the most of the remaining days before 2022.  As always, here are some top-notch links to accompany that morning coffee of yours.

Have a wonderful weekend all!
