Happy New Year

Well, that's it now - Christmas is all over for another year and Easter Eggs are beginning to appear in the shops much to my annoyance!

It's now that time of year where everyone attempts to reflect on what's happened in the last year and comes up with some resolutions that they just know wont be adhered to  much beyond January 5th! (which, incidentally is Twelfth Night and you need to have taken your Christmas decorations down by then.)

Since I have yet in my life to stick to a single resolution, I don't think that I will even attempt to make any this year except perhaps a simple wish to lead a healthier, happier life!!  Which I think that everybody tries to do in their own way.

So...what's this year going to be like?  There is certainly one big event happening this year and that my brother's wedding to Elizabeth this August - a huge family get-together that will be great fun - the hotels are already booked!  Other than that, I think that this is a fairly standard year - all the usual events and things that we have to do to keep going!!

In any case.....Happy New Year to you all and may you all succeed in your endeavours!

Hello Sam and thanks for stopping by my blog today. I have to say I tend to play slightly fast and loose with my cup conversions when I'm cooking. I can eyeball the Hello Dollies and know they're right, but when I need be more precise I like to go to this site to double check myself.

Easter Eggs already?! I saw the Valentine's Day stuff pop on the shelves even before the Christmas clearance sales were ending.

I haven't set any real goals for this year either. I'm just going to see what comes. My brother proposed to his girlfriend on Christmas Day and they are planning a June wedding. I have that to look forward to.

I hope you have a great week, Sam!

Happy New Year, Sam!

I am not making any resolutions this year so I guess my resolution is not to have any resolutions... LOL

Oh I love those spots on your side panels. Beautiful! Were they always there???

I meant to say Happy New Year but got distracted by the spots.

It was amazing how quickly the Easter Eggs appeared. Those Lindt bunnies actually look much more scary than the reindeer I think.
