Happy New Year to you all! I know that I said it on New Years Day, but there is nothing wrong with saying it again is there. I hope that your Christmas and New Year were good for you and that 2016 will be a great year for all of us!
This weekend we dedecorated, took down the tree, wrapped up all of the decorations and put them away in the loft. Today I have the Christmas china/candle holders/mugs etc to wrap up and put away and then it will all be done. Bar the chocolate and the rest of the cake. Thank you notes have even been sent already.
The weather has been atrocious, raining and raining and raining some more, but nothing like as bad as some parts of the country have had. For us I am glad of that, but my heart does go out to those of you who have been so terribly affected by flooding in recent weeks. I hope that you will soon be able to return to your homes and normal lives.
As the weather hasn't been good we have spent most of the Christmas period indoors, watching tv, I have been doing some more of my tapestry, having finished most of my crochet projects, and as I reported on Saturday catching up with some reading.
I haven't done a review of last year at all, I have no desire to look back! I am all about the onwards and upwards as I wrote on New Years Eve. Plans for today - other than packing up the china - include going for a walk, no matter what the weather. Even if it is just once around the block. I am also going to try and allot 30 minutes a day to writing and another 30 to another project that I am working on.
All ways of moving onwards and upwards.
I am pleased to announce that the winner of my Gifty Giveaway is Lisa from Into The Glade. Lisa, please can you e-mail me with your address details so that I can get the parcel in the post to you. Thank you everyone who took part.
Sorry there isn't a photo of the draw. Last week I printed out the comments - as there were so many! - and put them in my big teacup, drew the winner, threw away the slips of paper and then only realised as I went to write this post no photo... but trust me, Lisa was the winner! I can leave you with some photos of my big teacup though from my archive... Does that count? My photography has been rubbish over Christmas, must get back to it!
Today I am linking with Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise to share what I did at the weekend.
Now, please excuse me. I need to go and look for some suitable clothes for that walk!
p.s. don't forget to go and visit Amanda at Crafty In The Med to see her giveaway!
