Well hello there!
Happy New Year to you all! How exciting, a brand new year to contemplate and fill with lots of interesting living! Bring on 2013, it's going to be great!
Last night we went to a party at a friends home and saw the new year in with lots of lovely food, way too much champagne, a few very potent, delicious cocktails, late night disco dancing, and some great company and conversation.....we had a great time!
My 2 younger boys came with us, and they and their friends spent the night swimming and playing in the pool and generally running amok!
It was a very late night for everyone, and the whole house was very sluggish this morning! (Jesse was out with his friends at a local party and didn't get home till 4.45am, so they didn't surface till lunchtime)
Needless to say I have spent a fair amount of time today slothing on the couch with the tennis on (tennis on the TV makes me feel very summery!) and my stripey mixed stitch blanket on my knee, happily hooking away.
I was feeling a tiny bit seedy this morning, so thought a nice bowl of healthful strawberries might offset the result of a big party night.... it nearly worked, I feel healthier anyway!
We are lucky to have a strawberry farm fairly local to us, so these berries were delicious, so much more flavoursome than the supermarket ones. I am getting the odd handful out of our garden too, if I can beat the birds to them that is!
Hope you had a great New Years whatever you are doing, and I'm looking forward to sharing another year of creativity, colour and life with you all in 2013 !
