Hi everyone. Did you all have a great Christmas? I do hope so.
Mine was lovely. It was nice to spend time with the family and have a few days off from the television and computers. Even Emily managed to stay off her laptop for a whole day (no mean feat I promise you!!). The children were delighted with their presents - all total surprises. We played games - card and board although Pictionary promised more than it delivered!
Can you guess what I got? Here's a little sneaky peak.
Not only did I get a Cath Kidston mug . . .
Look at all the other fabulous goodies that I got, including my beloved Cath Kidston bag and the complete Season One of Glee - I am a lucky girl indeed! I also got a Robbie Williams CD and calender and a Robert Pattison calender, as well as some chocolates.
We have been quite busy since the Christmas weekend. Emily has been revising for her mock exams which happen as soon as she goes back to school. Edward has had a large amount of homework to complete (and he hasn't finished it all yet eeek!). Mark and I have tackled our bedroom, sorting out all of our clothes and generally decluttering. We have filled bin bags full of rubbish and have two huge piles of clothes to take to the charity shop. Whilst it has not been the most thrilling of jobs, there is quite a feeling of satisfaction, particularly as we can now see the floor and get into our wardrobes!!!
And so today is New Year's Eve. Where has the year gone? It seems to have flown by in a flash. I haven't planned any New Year's Resolutions yet - I know I want to push myself a little bit more with my crafting - mini books are something I want to make more of. I want to give my blog a bit of a face lift - make it a bit more colourful. I want to get a bit more exercise and be a bit healthier (we'll see how that one goes!!). And that's it for now.
I would like to take a moment to wish you all a very Happy New Year. Thank you for spending time with me this year and I hope you continue to visit in 2011.
