Ah well - sadly it's time to pack away the decorations again for another year! Not sure about you but our office is somehow looking a little less cheerful without the sparkles and colour of the mini Christmas trees that graced several desks.
Many of us wage battle with emails (how do quite SO many manage to arrive when many are 'off on holiday'??) as we start back to work this week. Here at Gretna Green, we've been busy throughout the season but we're now looking back on some of the high points and successes we've seen here over the last year!

It may be hard to believe but Christmas is only a MONTH and FOUR days away......where has time gone?!?
Regardless of whether you're a fan (we've all spotted them eagerly awaiting the first decorations in shops!) or dreading the crush of crowds, it's getting to be time to tackle that Christmas shopping!
If you're anything like us, you traipse through shop after boutique after stall trying to find presents that are unique! Well, this year you're in luck - we think we have the perfect suggestion here at Gretna Green for a wee stocking stuffer or even a decoration for your own tree/mantelpiece! It is even heartwarming....
