Happy New Year

No resolutions from me. I am very happy with my life right now (minor irritations with my job not withstanding!)
I looked back on some photos from the last year and realised that in the vast majority of them I'm smiling. Sometimes in my work life things happen that are not so great. However I can get through those things because my personal life is filled with good people, and my spare time is filled doing things I love.

Maybe that's my New Years Resolution; carry on making time for me.

May 2010 be fabulous for all of you!

and yet more snow....

sorry for the general theme, but it i just so odd to be getting this much snow in the UK. As I type, with the cat curled up on my lap, Mum is playing on her spinning wheel, and the rest of the family is alternating watching Jason and the Argonauts with staring n disbelief at the blizzard outside. It's been trying to snow all morning but has mostly been very cold rain. I think this time the snow might stick!
General motivation for manual labour is low when the weather is like this, so to amuse ourselves this morning we went to the one and only local tourist attraction for coffee and cake. It's an old woolen mill, which unfortunately no longer has any sort of functionality as a mill, but does still have an old pack horse bridge over the river dating back to the 1700's.


I've just completed some school work, and as a reward am going to pick up my knitting. I've nearly finished the body to a jumper.
