Fond wishes for 2008

It's been a while, so I do hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and wishing you all a warm welcome into 2008. As usual, the run up to Christmas was a bit mad, the decorations were only just up by Christmas Eve and all of the parcel wrapping was done that night, some things just never change in this house! It was lovely though, to be giving lots of home made pressies this year, and I think they all went down rather well.

Much celebrating has been done, we brought in the New Year with good friends in their lovely "newly extended" home. Lots of good food ( Rob's game pie was fantastic!) was eaten, not too much whisky was drunk, and much merriment was had! New Years day consisted of a hearty breakfast, a good walk and then lots of tea and cake, my idea of heaven!

Today, the snow has arrived, just as Gregg went back to work, typical! So, we're cosied up, the fires are roaring and lots of candles are lit. Bliss. I do tend to hybernate a bit at this time of year, but that's ok, it is January after all. I like to spend this month planning ahead for the coming months, plans for the business, the veggie garden, the flower garden, the extension, holidays..............the list goes on a bit! But it's all exciting, don't you think? What are all your plans for 2008, anything exciting happening?

I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone over the next couple of weeks and hopefully making lots of new friends in blogland, that's the fun bit don't you think?

Happy new year! Snow looks much better on your photos than it does in Edinburgh, all a bit slushy here.

Nice to see you back to blogging. Have missed reading your updates.

Xmas and new year were great for me and my hubby, our first one married!! We had a lovely festive period, spending it with our families and friends. Can't think of a better way to spend this time of year. Hope you did the same too?

Looking forward to reading all your news
