happy holidays, lovely people!
I made a cupcake tower for my friend Lisa’s birthday on the weekend. We split a bottle of Lindauer and ate cupcakes and Hawke’s Bay cherries...most festive!
I thought I might squeeze in a few blog posts before the holidays began, but it is proving too hectic so I think I will sign off for 2009 now.
Thanks to those of you who responded to my request for feedback on the blog - I ended up receiving a lot of compliments, which wasn’t why I asked (honest!) but was lovely nonetheless. One thing that you all said (except for one person!) consistently was that you miss links and comments. I have plans, plans, plans for my wee corner of ye olde interwebby for 2010.
2009 was NOT good for me in a lot of ways that never made it on here ... but I limped along and things are looking up and I am feeling optimistic about 2010...I do love the New Year rituals. A new year, a fresh start, summer loving ... all that ... yes! watch this space - I will return in February all fresh-faced and bushy-tailed.
Over the next two months I plan to: play mini-golf with my brother, swim in the sea and in rivers, eat outside as much as possible, read all the Moomintroll books I collected this year, add to the family photo albums and make use of having extra adults around to take afternoon baths and naps as much as possible!
Have a lovely summer (or winter in the Northern hemisphere!) break with good family time, rest and recreation (but mostly rest!) ... eat lovely seasonal, local food, give into your baser desires and read some trashy books, get out in nature and roll around on the grass (or snow!) ...
...see you in 2010! xxxxxx
