Happy New Year

Current work: on holiday (yes, still)
Listening to: Jon Lord
Reading: Lucy Dillon, The Secret of Happy Ever After (brilliant – so far this is my fave of hers. I really like the two main characters and can particularly empathise with the bookworm)

Happy New Year! May it bring you what you want most.

Yesterday was the warmest New Year’s Day I can ever remember. We went to the beach to see the seals, just as we did last New Year. (Hmm. This might become an institution. If I get my way, that is…)

Walking along the dunes, listening to the waves swishing onto the beach and with the wind blowing out all the cobwebs, was pretty much what we all needed. It’s one of my favourite activities ever – and if we lived nearer to the beach then I’d do this every single day. I don’t mind getting a bit windswept!

And the seals? Well… they can speak for themselves.

Happy New Year :o)

I loved the new Lucy dillon too. One of those books you don't want to finish because you miss its warmth.

Happy New Year - hope it's a good one for you! Mx

What a lovely day!

I recommended Lucy's books to my d-i-l at Christmas. Time to buy her latest!

Happy New Year to you and yours, Kate.

Morton - I loved it. Hope your year is good, too!

Liz - it was just what we needed. Really life-affirming. Hope you have a great year.

Caroline - they were cute in the extreme! HNY to you and yours, too :)
