Hello there my friends
It feels like so long ago that I last posted
I feel very out of practice
I just didn't know where to start
so I gave myself a stern talking to
'Just get on with it!'
So here I am
~ Hello ~
I hope you had a magical Christmas
and are having a good start to the new year
I for one was rather glad to say farewell to 2013
(I stumbled upon this pin ..... the hunt began for the cutter, I found it in Australia
it's a jolly good job I have a bestie who resides there!)
We had a lovely Christmas
although a little bitter~sweet at times
we had LOTS of fun and ate WAY too much
we enjoyed each others company
and our familiar traditions
which are so comforting and hold so many precious memories
layer upon layer, year upon year
My wishes for 2014 are for Peace, Simplicity & Health
I shall be trying hard to encourage copious amounts of these into my life
I am really rubbish at keeping resolutions
so this year I've decided to set myself an
. . . Intention . . .
sounds much less scary I feel
my Intention for this shiny new year is
to be kinder to myself
slow things down
look after myself ..... Mind ..... Body ..... Soul
and cherish those I hold dear
My lovely boy is poorly again
he's tucked up in bed
(I have been cherishing him)
it seems that glandular fever is not quite finished with him yet.
Sweet B is now back at uni
Where on earth did that three weeks go?
missing her SO much
She will have her head buried in books and lecture notes
readying herself for exams in a couple of weeks
I will be texting her to remind her to eat!
I've put myself back on the 5:2 diet
every piece of clothing I own is VERY sung
The Baileys & Quality Street were dee~licious
(homemade marshmallows & reindeer cookies too)
but now I must pay the price!
500 calories is mean.
(Marshmallows using this recipe ..... thank you Miss Hope x)
I have LOTS to show you
so I'll be back soon!

P.S You did make me giggle with your elf names from my last post
~ Puddin Toe~Bells ~
turned out to be quite appropriate
the first name anyway
I don't actually have jingly toes but I do look a little like a Puddin ~ sadly.
