Sunday 1 January 2012


The first day of the New Year, and a favourite time for me. Time to begin!

I have struggled to find time to blog these last few months, and in fact have enjoyed the break. I have to be honest and admit to not even missing this space very much - a sure sign it was time to step away.

I've had a wonderfully restorative and restful Christmas, which was just what I needed. I visited my family up country earlier in December, which in turn gave me some extended time off here in Cornwall these last two weeks. Time for long walks each day with my boy, re-discovering stretches of the coast path I've not trodden in a while, and spending the dark hours of the day knitting or reading, catching up with films and friends, and of course plenty of eating! It's been pretty blissful.

Now a squeaky clean New Year is unfolding in front of me, and I'm feeling excited. I want to dive right in!

Happy, Happy New Year to you all!

Hello and Happy New Year to you, I have meant to get in touch so often but never quite got round to it. Sorry. So good to hear all is well with you and the boy and hopefully will get the chance to catch up properly some time soon. I never did get down, much to my shame!

Good to see you back feeling refreshed and ready to go. Sometimes we need to take a step back and a break from things in order to see where we are going don't we?. Sounds as though you have made good use of your break.

The good thing about a break is the extra energy with which you return. Good to see you!
