Ho Ho Ho!

Thanks for popping in.

Well, Mark’s home safe and sound. Great to see him, to catch up, and listen to him telling me all about Life in the Bay Area.

So I didn’t go to work today. They don’t need me there! Methinks they are having way too much fun though!!!!

There seems to be a real Christmas Jumper thing going on at Clarity! Our usually stringent dresscode has definitely been relaxed in the run up to Christmas…

Here we have Debby, Head of Retail, giving it large!

Oh! And here’s Ian, who elfs my brother making Groovi plates!

Sharon is over on the HOCHANDA TV dispatch side,

and wears a different top every day !!!!

Here’s Jayne, Head of  TV, looking like she’s hit the sherry early doors!

…and then there’s lovely Sophie, our beautiful resident fairy, who just sparkles and radiates Christmas joy wherever she goes – with her little friend!

This wonderful friend of mine is Shona. Sophie’s Mum. She is another Godsend at Clarity. Spot the chocolates!!!

We shall have to go dancing again Shona! Dance off all those calories!

I do love Georgina’s sweatshirt – TODAY IS THE DAY

In case you haven’t figured it out though, Debby is definitely the party girl!

Here we see her chasing young Tom for a kiss underneath the Mistletoe

She everyone’s favourite Mum in this department. Here we have beautiful Ummi and Anna, who pack each and every one of your Clarity orders. George is home from Uni, so is in again, to help and join in the work & fun.

Flip flops in December! Honestly, Debby! Please let me put you in the picture. Clad in their Christmas best here, and larking about, you have two of the most switched on, hard working women you will ever meet. They run their departments like well oiled machines. Brilliant.


And the first thing Debs says every single time I walk through the door is, “Hello Barb, Would you like a cuppa?”

What’s not to love?

Blimey! She’s even got Elfie Knickers on!!!

And on that no no note, I shall go go go get my pinny on, and make my boys a lovely welcome home meal.

Love & Hugs,

  1. What a great post, seeing all the wonderful Clarity peeps in all their Christmas jumper glory. I need the elf jumper! I am only 5 feet tall, so it would be perfect!
    Glad Mark arrived safely – you must be in your element and eagerly awaiting Grace’s arrival.
    I really felt as though Christmas was starting today, as I helped to serve Christmas dinner to over 400 children at the primary school where I volunteer. When the 12 days of Christmas was played and they all joined in, it was goose bump time and everyone was just so happy. I wish we could bottle it!
    Have a lovely evening with your men. Hugs Annette X

  2. Way too much fun going on! Lovely happy ship you have there. Glad your laddo got home safely x Don’t have to say enjoy, because I know you will enjoy every minute xx

  4. Hi Barb,
    Bet you’re super happy today to have your lovely Mark home. What lovely photos too. Great to see a picture of Ummi – that’s who does most of my Clarity parcels, so I can picture her now. Have to say as well, that everyone looks so happy. It’s brilliant that you have such a wonderful team working for you.

  5. Lovely to see more members of the team, what a happy crew. Great jumpers. Hubby was looking to expand his stock of Christmas apparel today, but with 35 ties 26 pairs of socks, 17 hats, 3 jumpers I said enough was enough!! Bought him some liqueur chocolates instead.

You see the names on the little slip in your order and now I know what Ummi looks like. 😊😊 Your team all look really happy and I guess that means a productive workforce too. What a fab team you have. Ooh I bet you were over the moon to see Mark? And soon Grace will join you all too and that will be the clan back together, at least for a while. Hope Dave is doing ok? Enjoy your evening. Much love xxx
