Happy New Year!
I'm late this year, and it's not been because I've been whooping it up and partying on down for the last two weeks. Christmas was lovely, then just before New Year I got walloped by a dose of the flu and a chest infection and spent six days in bed without eating. Antibiotics are now working their magic. Now that my appetite is back I'm trying not to binge and put all the weight I lost back on. Yes, I guess this year's resolution (that I probably share with many) is to lose a few pounds, OK a stone at least!
I was lucky to receive lots of nice books for Christmas. I'd already started to read (and admire the lovely pictures from) the Kirstie Allsop one which I was enjoying, the rest are as yet almost completely untouched - in some ways the best state as they still promise so much and have not had a chance yet to disappoint!
Another resolution this year is to have a good old clear out of the house. Even for me the clutter is becoming too much. It's free listing on ebay this weekend, I'll try and get organised...
This photo is from a walk I took round the village just after Christmas, but it would look pretty much the same today as we had another light dusting of snow overnight...
...so only another five months to go till it looks like this (big sigh!). Maybe spring will come earlier this year.
Right, off to get my camera and try and photograph some things for ebay. Enjoy your weekend!
EDITED to say... was thinking about how long 5 months till the beginning of May seemed (when the photo with the cherry blossom was taken) and realised I'd made a mistake - it'll only be 4 months from now till the beginning of May, hooray! I'm feeling better already (just need to overcome the ongoing wheezieness and snottieness now...)
