I'd like to wish all my friends here a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
I've heard the word Twixmas mentioned in blogland several times lately - a word used to describe the kind of limbo we experience between Christmas and New Year. A funny time of year where you can't settle down to anything until after 1st January. My tree and decorations have been put away for another year and so I've been playing around with a new Photo Collage app on my iPad. The results of which I want to share with you now - just a few reflections of the past year.
I've just completed a ten week course on the history of The Tower of London and John took me there a few weeks ago
Another trip to London's East End - more about this later
Some very special family moments -
A new boat for Emma and family; My graduation; Emma's 40th; Our Sicilian holiday and our new VW Campervan
Some of our beautiful walks in surrounding woodlands
Some good times with special family and friends -
With Emma, Harry and Leo on the London Eye; with my two sisters Barbara and Helen at my niece's wedding; old friends Peter, Barbara, Ken and Freda on a Brittany beach; two of whom are brothers Ken and Peter; me with son Jonathan celebrating my Degree at The Ivy; with friends Ellen and Norman at Rudyard Kipling's home Batemans (a post for the New Year maybe)
And lastly - remembering my late special Uncle Jack.
(quite a dashing young fellow in his day don't you think)
I hope you all have wonderful New Year's Eve celebrations whatever your plans - as for us we've opted to spend a quiet evening at home with even more reflections and maybe a glass of something! or three....
See you next year xx
