Written on New Year’s Day after our return home!

New Year’s Eve started with exercise for me – I went to a ladies strength class at 7.30am! It is my favourite class of the week and I always attend when I can. I really appreciate Jemma who is the instructor – encouraging but not shouty. Perfect!

This evening we went to our friends Emma and Martin’s house. We all brought food and booze. The kids screamed about the place and played games on the Wii…. and they all managed to stay awake until midnight. One of the usual families wasn’t able to attend and much missed but we had a lovely time anyway. I hugely appreciate this lovely group of friends and the fact that our children play (mostly) so beautifully together.

31.1Midnight was seen in with fizz and smiles and a lovely group photo. We stayed overnight and this morning started slowly with a cooked brunch. Unfortunately the weather was pretty rough so we didn’t get out usual new Year’s Day walk but The Mister and the kids and I went for a quick breath of fresh air on the way home.

2022 was a year full of ups and downs but mostly it was just day-to-day normality. The bump and grind of daily life, kids activities, church, exercise, sea swimming, friends, family and a wonderful holiday to Kenya… the real highlight of our year.


So… onwards to 2023. Who knows what it will bring.

One thing I do know is that I won’t be carrying on with a picture a day. I have lost the pleasure of it, it has become a chore not a delight. I will still post, but not so often.

Happy New Year everyone x
