January, the month of new beginnings and cherished memories, beckons....
Come, let winter weave her wondrous spell: cold, crisp, woolen-muffler days, long dark evenings of savoury suppers, lively conversations, or solitary joys. Out side all is still, nature is at peace. We should be too. Draw hearthside. This is the month to dream, to look forward to the new year ahead and the journey within....
~ Hello every one, how has your Christmas been? I wonder.
I must admit to feeling as weak as a kitten through all the festivities.. I came down with the Christmas dreaded 'lurgy' on the big day its self! Perhaps running low on batteries from all the extra working hours and build up!
~ Christmas is for kittie cats too, you know!
(Pedro on Christmas morning)
~ There has been days of cosying by the fire, and giving in to rest.....
The 'holy' quiet days in between Christmas and new year are always my favourite.
~ And as we put 2012 well and truly to bed, I give thanks for the wonderful year, we have shared....A year of achievement commitment and satisfaction for us all as a family!
Dean flies out to Nairobi in Kenya with team GB on the 5th, January! He will be there for a month to train in the higher altitudes with the likes of Mo Farah! It is another fabulous opportunity as he and pal David Devine are the only two from the Paralympic team of distance runners chosen..
I am ever so chuffed for him!
I would like to thank you all for your kind friendships and sweet comments always and as we have travelled through this virtual year together, dear friends, I would like to wish you and yours a truly wonderful new year!
Chill something bubbly tomorrow evening and honour the old year with a toast!
~ And welcome the new with open hearts.
I will be sure to take all your blogging friendships with me into 2013!
Bless you all.
