This illustration is from about 100 years ago, and shows a London Hospital at Christmas, where 'clowns' are entertaining children who are sadly too ill to be at home.
I've never spent a Christmas in hospital, nor (if I remember correctly) have I ever been ill over Christmas.
So, especially this year, I'm thinking of all those children, the world over, who are ill, injured, or disabled, and are unable to spend Christmas at home with their families.
I do know it's impossible, but, via the airwaves, I send them all my love and very best wishes. xx
