ell since my last post Christmas has been and gone and we’ve leapt into a brand new year. Happy 2013 everyone! I enjoyed the Christmas holidays despite being struck with a throat infection and a stomach bug, nothing that a bit of festive cheer can’t temporarily cure! The New Year was spent with my friend Martina and her family. To sum it up it was really lovely; An evening of food and laughter, time spent with wonderful people, a bit of the old Hootenanny (Jools Holland’s a NYE staple, right?) a ‘group effort’ of Auld Lang Syne, and grandparents who really know how to shake their tailfeathers! That really is a nice way to see in the New Year.
