Looking back on all the lovely moments of the past year, is something I always love to do at this time ..... and looking ahead to more wonderful moments this year.
In January we had a wedding in the family ~ my nephew married his very sweet bride and they are now living and teaching in Japan.
We had a wonderful holiday in Fiji, enjoying glorious sunshine and having a relaxing time.
Our daughter graduated from University with a Fashion Degree and our Son left school and will be going to University to study Graphic Design.
Attending my Mothers birthday with all my dear Family.
So they have been a few of the highlights of our year and there have been so many wonderful moments.
The only sad time was when my dear old Dad died, but I have to look back on how lucky we were to have him for all that time and the special and loving Man that he was.
Thank you for all the happy memories and gifts you gave us.
This time of the year brings hope and opportunity for a great year ahead.
I have been buying this Victoriana Calender, for the past 5 years, and just love it for all the beautiful images and pretty things.
I saw the French Calender too, which has some wonderful photos, taken all around France.
So I can sit and dream in my kitchen and think of all the beautiful places in France.
This little diary I have been buying every year and they are always so pretty.
I love to keep a diary and have been doing this since I was about 16.
Do you have any little traditions that you enjoy doing and just seems to be part of your life?
How thankful I am, for my dear friends here.
I hope that your new Year is starting off well.
Everyday is an opportunity, so make it the best it can be!
