Au Revoir 2013

Hi everyone, I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas and celebration of the winter/summer solstice (or whatever you celebrate) and are having a great holiday!  December has been a whirlwind of manic Christmas present wrapping (I've been wrapping not only the presents I got people, but also other people's presents as well as inadvertently wrapping my own!), delicious food, enjoying the company of friends and family, swimming, fun and summer.
I've been spending lots of time with my sister, Ireland, and her boyfriend, James, after finally meeting him for the first time. It has involved lots of trips to beaches and rivers, watching episodes of Doctor Who and introducing James to some of our favourite TV shows (such as Absolutely Fabulous and Black Books) debating whether Florence Welch says "you're giving me such sweet nothing" in her song 'Sweet Nothings' or if she's actually saying "you're giving me sexy gherkins" (yes, really), making Italian food, annoying each other, and James and Ireland finding interesting ways to wake me up, such as: James playing the Ukulele right next to my ear, slathering Vegemite on my face, and them both jumping on me (but that's okay, because James now has a distinct bald patch on his arm). I spent my Christmas with my gorgeous godfamily and my mum, which was lovely, and am looking forward to celebrating the new year tonight with Ireland, James and my dad.

Anyway, I'm off to do my resolutions (which is basically just a very large reading list).
Happy New Year!
I hope 2014 brings wonderful things for you all. xx

That sounds like a pretty wonderful Christmas. I love Black Books too! It's one of those shows where the jokes really stay with you. I can think of that show and start giggling. I was a bit disappointed with Christmas Doctor Who this year. Lots of annoying bits in it, but I'm hoping for good things with Peter Capaldi. :)

Happy New Year dear Willow! Sounds like you've had a brilliant Christmas break, here's to a great year to come!

Love the fact that it sounds as though our DVD shelves are packed with the same 'favourites' as ours. Do you get the BBC's Sherlock too? The recent series of 3 episodes was stupendous.
Happy reading. My list just grows ever longer, like a great spool of ribbon unravelling into the distance.
Looking forward to seeing more of your photography this year.
