The first of the next 365 days

Happy New Year to everyone who is reading the blog.  I do hope that if you celebrated last night too much, that you recover quickly. We spent the evening with parents and Christiana.  We made it through to the new year with Gary Barlow who I thought was great but I am very tired today, even after a lie in.

The young adults made it to London YEAH but they were not allowed on to the embankment to see the firework display.  It seems that you have to be on the embankment around 8.30 otherwise, no chance.  I think they are all having a good time though.

Have you noticed the make over?  Trying to give the blog a bit of a face lift, what do you think so far?  I am also getting the blog ready for January 28th, new catalogue, new sale a bration, new crafty projects etc. etc. all exciting stuff.

Yesterday was a day for visitors, we had lots of them and lots of chocolate, cakes, biscuits all got eaten phew.  I am so pleased about this as we have so much of it and the diet is now on.

This year, 2014, is going to be my year, I have decided.  I dont mind sharing this with you and as my sister would say, I am on a journey and I know exactly where I am going.  I am not making any New Year resolutions but will be doing things a little different, each month.  For January I hope to loose 8lbs in weight, make 4 scrapbook pages and get all my birthday cards for February ready.  I shall not complain about work, washing, ironing nor shopping as these things have to be done, no matter what.  I will however try out 4 new recipes, learn how to ice a cake and visit 2 places I have never been before, how about that for a statement.

A bit of a different TAH DAH for you today

These have been knitted, some can go on the tree and some just sit on a plate but all of them contain a Ferrer Roche, scrummy.

I have been told that if I put on hand/nail cream every time I put on my washing up gloves, my hands will become softer and my nails will become harder so for January, that is what I will try.  I will let you know how I get on.

For todays card I have used something that is coming up in the January Sale A Bration on the 28th. 


It is a kit with lots of things in it and I will tell you more tomorrow.

Ending todays post with this


Thank you for visiting on this very first day of 2014.  Enjoy the day as best you can
