New Year - New Life

Well we've reached the end of another year; I hope it was a good one for you. Have you made any resolutions? I haven't made any resolutions as such, but this new year will see many changes in my life so my resolution is simply to embrace life and all its challenges.

After 17 years of marriage, hubby and I have decided to part; so when we eventually sell this house we'll be going our separate ways. My daily life will be very different, but I'm looking forward to a new area to explore, new people to meet, a new house to decorate, a craft room to be creative in, a new garden to plant and enjoy, and a little dog to keep me company on long, healthy walks and nights by the fire. But whatever 2011 brings, I shall endeavour to look on the bright side - and on that note, as I'm sick of the snow and dreary winter weather, please enjoy this bright and cheery montage of flowers from my garden this past year.

New people? New places? New experiences? Whatever you wish for in 2011, I hope it's a happy and healthy one for you and your family.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas...

Well the time has finally come.

The 'handmade' tree is decorated.

The fireplace is clothed in festive greenery.

The wreath is hanging on the front door.

The skinny tree is bright and sparkly.

The veg is ready for roasting.

The stuffing balls and pigs-in-blankets are ready for the oven.

The table is set.

The stockings are hung.

There's presents under the tree.

So that just leaves me with one thing left to do...

To wish you all a Very Merry Christmas
- hope you day is filled with love and happiness!

I'm dreaming of a...


And it looks like we're going to get it!

It snowed last night, and again this morning. So even if it doesn't snow on The Big Day, we're going to have snow on the ground at least.

Everything looks so much prettier with some of the white stuff, doesn't it?

Though I could never tire of this view, whether it's white or not.

But I hope it doesn't snow as much as it did at the beginning of December; not much good for visitors and visiting over the Christmas break.

And eating al fresco on the patio seems a long way off...!
